Pop Up Dinner at Argus Cidery
On November 15th, we hosted our second pop up dinner event at Argus Cidery, the brainchild of San Francisco transplant Wes Mickel. Set in the backdrop of a modern Hill Country barn, our event partner Gypsy Events & Floral worked to create an incredibly intimate setting with a focus on a four course communal dining experience.
We hold our pop up dinners for a variety of reasons. We like to get to know our loyal customers and chat with them in a setting away from the fast paced nature of our food trucks. We also like to broaden our reputation beyond our food trucks in anticipation of our upcoming brick and mortar location. Our multi-course pop up dinners allow us to solicit feedback from our guests, in turn helping us slowly carve out our future brick and mortar menu.
Course 1 was our kimchi arancini lollipops, deep fried risotto balls infused with kimchi, parmesan and mozzarella cheese. To further the fall mood, we followed the lollipops with a Thai carrot soup topped with ginger salt, fried shallots and white pepper. Our entree was our take on a traditional Korean dish, bossam. Each table received a nine pound bone in slow smoked kalua pork shoulder and a variety of accoutrements, including bibb lettuce, kimchi, Japanese pickles, wasabi mayo, Chinese BBQ sauce, and rice (you can find a version of this on our catering menu for your next private event). The final bookend to the meal was our apple cobbler wontons. We were at an apple cidery after all. When in Rome...
We will be having more pop ups in the near future, so make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to hear the latest news. And of course, you can always visit one of our trucks roaming the streets of Austin in the meantime.
