Sol Kitchen Scores on Sol Sunday
A new concept started last week for football and food fans too called Sol Sunday. Cooking in the Sol Kitchen are two chefs from Paradigm fame, Kurtis Jantz and Chad "zilla" Galiano.
In a nutshell, the Sol Kitchen delivers a tailgate party to your front door on NFL Sundays.
The menu is released on Monday night @ http://chadzilla.typepad.com/chadzilla/ and @ http://blindtastes.blogspot.com/ along with ordering info. You can also follow them on twitter @solkitchen.
$150 feeds six and currently includes Gello shots, two snacks, two sides, two "touchdowns" (mains) and dessert. The food is delivered to your door in easy to heat and serve trays along with plates, utensils and a roll of paper towels. It also comes with a play book and menu to help you move the chains. (That's a football term food lovers)
We placed our first order this week and it was delicious. It was a generous amount of food and a good value. It's perfect for a group watching the games at home or heading to the stadium to tailgate.
This week's menu:
Dark & Stormy gello shot- this featured dark rum and pop rocks. Now this is my kind of amuse-bouche.
Kettle chips and charred scallion dip.
Cracka' jax- soy caramel kettle korn with wasabi peas and ginger.
Huancaina Country Potato Salad
Brussels Sprouts with grilled chorizo
Deep South Brisket Po-Boys with gravy and dressing.
Peruvian Wings- aji panca wild black berry bbq sauce
Crawfish griddled cheese with fontina.
Smokin' Oat Cookies- smoked cranberry, white chocolate chunks and pumpkin seeds.
The food arrived at 12:30 (as scheduled) but they will accommodate your delivery time requests.
The food was very impressive and much better than I expected. Two snacks, sides and mains plus dessert resulted in a generous amount of food. The inclusion of plates and utensils was an added bonus and a very nice and convenient touch.
The brisket po-boy and the Brussels sprouts with chorizo were my favorite dishes followed closely by the crawfish griddled cheese and wings. The scallion dip was hard to put down and cracka jax was a perfect snack during the game.
The brisket was really tender and packed with flavorful gravy that reminded me of the debris from Mother's in NO. The dressing was also excellent and a perfect combination. The chorizo and Brussels were perfectly grilled and very tasty. The meat of the wings fell off the bone and the bbq sauce was great. I'm always excited to see crawfish on a menu and their crawfish grilled cheese didn't disappoint.
I'm looking forward to ordering again in the near future as well as the playoffs and Super Bowl.
It could be a good call for holiday office parties too. (not sure if that is going to be an option but may be worth inquiring about)
