Pop-Up Pick: the ssam goes south this Sunday as Home of the Brave hosts Momofuku Noodle Bar
This Sunday between 5 p.m and 10 p.m., Home of the Brave plays host to Momofuku Noodle Bar for one night of Tex-Mex madness. Hans Vogels, Noodle Bar’s chef de cuisine, will be whipping up a few southwestern dishes (all with Asian influence, of course) alongside the HotB’s Nate Middleton. Some of the evening’s one-offs from Vogels include crispy nukazuke jalapeños, bourbon-laced queso fundido and a chicken-fried steak ssam with kimchi. Courtesy of Middleton: a trio of good ol’ hard-shell tacos (marlin ceviche, rockfish and chili). And the Sweet Jesus dessert geniuses get in the spirit with a banana split made with Mexican coffee–flavoured ice cream and churros. Reservations aren’t required for the event and all of the special menu items will be sold à la carte. But, if it’s some fried bologna or a fowl sandwich that you’re after, Home of the Brave’s regular menu will be available, too.
Home of the Brave. June 28, 5 p.m.–10 p.m., 589 King St. W., 2nd Fl., 416-366-2736.
