DROP-IN DINNER: Korean-Mexican Mashup by Manuel Hinojosa

October 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

At first glance, Mexican and Korean cuisines might seem pretty far removed, but if the wild success of trends like Los Angeles’ famous Korean Tacos Trucks is any indication, they make great friends. It’s not that surprising really – both cultures have an abiding love of chilies, garlic, meat, varied textures and bold flavours. Chef Manuel Hinojosa combines ingredients from his Mexican background with a modern Korean twist for a unique and delicious meal.  #glutenfree
