New eats: Kitchen at NextDoor

Few flavor combinations flirt with the legendary pairings of peanut butter and jelly, apple pie and vanilla ice cream, and french fries and soft serve. Korean flavors in tacos have become one of the newer food crazes, exciting the nation’s taste buds with bold marinades and a harmonious balance of sweet, sour, spicy and savory.

Kitchen is a new lunchtime restaurant in Chinatown along Hotel Street. Located inside the nightclub NextDoor, the unfinished walls, exposed pipes and second-story doors to nowhere are clearly visible by way of the shafts of natural light that fill the raw space. A peculiar venue for a lunch-only spot, this decor is a nice change from the matching chairs and lacquered tables at other downtown establishments.

The food at Kitchen is amazing— generous portions of marinated BBQ beef brisket, carnitas, and cilantro chicken are piled high on tacos, quesadillas and taco salads. Come hungry and leave stuffed, chefs Sam Hwang and Leroy Guo produce quality food at an affordable price. Tacos are $3 each and prices range up to $8 for the rice and beans with your choice of meat.

GS:  Wow...Koreans venturing into Mexican cuisine.  That should be a nice fusion since both are known for spicy tastes..  The gastronomic world is really becoming quite mixed up.  Even Europeans are starting to do more Asian things.
