Fluid boundaries, grey zones, ambiguous spaces, liminal territories… Creativity thrives in spaces where things remain playful and undefined. Passionate cook and performer Mikiki manifests this spirit in their art and in their kitchen.
In celebration of their 20th Dragiversary, Mikiki is preparing an eclectic 6-course tasting menu. Japanese and Jewish, Italian and Malaysian, Chinese and Lebanese; cultures and flavours colliding and combining in exciting and unexpected ways. Mikiki will be hosting the evening in full drag, and the evening includes an intimate performance after dessert.
As it sounds: paella as ochasuke. A shrimp and clam paella done with the mind wandering to Japan, with lingering memories or its origin. Finished with a tea-broth.
On a bustling street in Shanghai, after a tumultuous night of passion and philosophical debate, Fatteh and Jianbing wake up together and collaborate to make a new favorite. A lentil crepe stuffed with tahineh cream with preserved tofu in red rice wine, cucumber, tongho greens and youtiao.
Ten Zaru Kugel But Not
The Ashkenazi favorite redone with Ten Zaru Soba, a deforestation of mushrooms and a Japanese-style curried mornay sauce.
A remake of my favorite salad, the Perigourdine. Confit of duck gizzards and bitter greens dressed with harrissa with walnuts, chilies and homemade cheese.
Beets do Lines
You’ll figure it out.
Panna cotta with pandan, coconut and green apple.
Mikiki has been feeding friends and lovers in many kitchens across the country and now would love to feed you. They have worked with food as an artist and catered many gallery openings along with their day jobs in the social service sector talking about sex and drugs (and occasionally rock and roll). They like bold flavours and hope you do too. This is also their 20 Year Dragiversary and will be preparing and serving this meal in full regalia.
Every weekend The Depanneur invites a guest chef to host a fun, informal dinner party.
