Anytime we get a moment to try out a new spot we make it a point to do so!
Last week we had the opportunity to head on over to Kitchen Sink Food & Drink in Beacon and we are so glad we did.
The space is very light and airy with a cozy bar that looks into an open kitchen concept. There are unique faucet-inspired light fixtures that offer a warm lit ambiance when the sun goes down.
And don’t forget about those comfy window seats – they’ll make you want to get lost with a bottle of wine for hours!
The menu offers a delicious “eclectic mix of global and family influenced dishes, blending local ingredients with modern techniques.”
We started off with the Farm vegetable pickles which were the perfect color of yellow and included beets, cauliflower, carrots and cabbage to name a few.
The warm beet salad was next in line and we are so happy it was.
The beets were served warm with heavenly drops of house-made ricotta which offered an airy creaminess.
The green apple added tartness and texture which went nicely with the earthy beets. An interesting part of this dish was their ability to use the whey, a by product from making ricotta, that is typically overlooked and tossed out.
It has a pretty pink hue thanks to those beets and offers the dish a wholesomeness in knowing nothing has been wasted!
We were thankful we did because the next two items were perfection.
That nights menu was serving Hake which is in the cod family and has a subtle sweetness to it while being a light and flaky white fish.
They served it over fennel with an avocado puree, blood orange and citrus with a sprinkle of dehydrated olive.
The colors were so beautiful they stalled us from digging in but once we did it was hard to not clean the plate. The unique flavors kept making you go back for more. Trying different combinations of citrus, creaminess and flaky-sweet-fish each time.
The Steak Bahn Xeo WAS LIFE CHANGING.
I have never had a more tender piece of meat than this one. They roast it on very low heat for hours and then sear it off before it’s ready to be served.
Not only was this dish pretty to look at but fun to eat!
You can mix the steak with pickled veggies, dip it in the creamy aioli, or even wrap everything at the same time in the coconut crepe ; each bite opening up your taste buds to new and delicious flavors.
We love food that is not only beautiful but tastes delicious too – this is one of those dishes that hits both of those points perfectly.
