The Minnis To Host Asian Street Food Dinner
Inspired by the culinary delights he encountered on extensive travels throughout the Far East, Jason Freedman, chef patron of The Minnis Bar & Restaurant in Birchington-on-Sea in Kent, is to host a special Asian Street Food night on 27th June.
An exotic buffet-style dinner costing £13.95 a head including complimentary drink will be served on from 7.00pm on Friday 27th June.
The extensive array of dishes will feature: Fresh Chicken Sate with Peanuts, Indonesian Nasi Goreng with Fried Eggs, Home Made Spiced Spring Rolls, Grilled Pork Skewers, Papaya & Lime Salad, Salted Beef with Chilli & Tamarind, Crispy Soft Shell Crab, Aromatic Prawn Curry, Roast Duck & Egg Noodle Soup, Local Asparagus with Stir Fried Prawns, Stir Fried Crispy Pork with Broccoli, Steamed Mussels with Chilli & Basil Deep Fried Cured Pork Ribs, Japanese Chicken Ramen, Karaage Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce, Salmon, Prawn & Crab Fishcakes, Green Pea Rice and Vegetable Fried Noodles.
"I'm a massive fan of Asian street food, cook it all the time at home and make a bee line for good Asian restaurants on my day off," so I thought why not have a special themed night here at the Minnis", said Jason, adding, "The oriental approach to food is infinitely adaptable and to eat anything and everything, turning any ingredients which come to hand - chicken's feet, snakes blood or cow heel - into delicious, wholesome dishes.
"So working with the rich variety of quality food stuffs available in Kent, is a pleasure."
Spending more time in the kitchen since opening his new Taste of the Med tapas and mezze restaurant, with unrivalled sea views, in The Minnis' upper dinning room, Jason also plans further themed evenings this year with A taste of Modern Italy and a Taste of Japan evenings, in addition to the restaurant's regular curry nights.
Jason's penchant for the East is not confined to food. Four years ago, he endured 140 hours of excruciating pain in a Herne Bay tattoo parlour to gain a full-length Samuri style design favoured by the 'Yazuka' Japanese mafia, tattooed across his back, shoulders, arms, buttocks and legs.
