@kentdorsey and I got to try @littledonkeyboston on its soft opening night, Thursday! @kenoringer & @jamiebiss have another hit on their hands #offthecharts
Great food, drinks, service, hospitality, music, decor, vibe and they had only been open one day!
We ordered the first Donkey Platter they sold and it was 3 tiers of awesome...so many tasty treats...the Live Scallop w/ umeboshi & shiso #myfavorite , Razor Clams w/ jicama, cucumber & pepitas #sogood , Tuna Poke w/ Gochujang & pickled bean sprouts #spicygoodness , Shrimp - Mexican cocktail style #soyummy , King Crab w/ Louis dressing #sweetandtasty , Ikura w/ wasabi & garlic soy #saltygoodness , Oysters, & Clams on the half shell plus all the unique accompaniments (granitas, gelee, & sauces) and the nori-butter covered bread. Normally, I eat my raw oysters & clams without any toppings but these ones you have to try.
Loved my drink, The Donkey Punch, made w/ Cimarron Reposado Tequila, Cassis, lime & agave #illhaveanother
Also, got to try and enjoyed the following: Silver Queen Corn w/ Parmesan, bone marrow, bonito flakes, aioli, green onions, & hot sauce #cheesygoodness , Heirloom Tomatoes w/ XO sauce & garlic scapes #refreshing , Charred Avocado w/ pepitas, yogurt, & pomegranate molasses #earthyandrich , Manti (Istanbul Meat Ravioli) w/ garlic sour cream & red pepper butter #pocketsfulloflove , Red Lentil Kale Dhal w/ jasmine rice & Sparrow Arc veggies #veggiegoodness , Cucumber Salad w/ feta, buttermilk, & spicy peppers #creamyandrefreshing , & BLT Lettuce Wraps w/ lamb bacon, tomato jam, pimento cheese, peach slices, & pickled red onion #whatsnottolovetheresbaconinit
For dessert: Had a double espresso and tried some of the Chicory Soft-Serve w/ Thai tea chantilly & peanuts #deelicious and Matcha Profiteroles w/ hot fudge & pocky sticks #iwouldliketodrowninthishotfudgeonedaybecauseitwasthatgood
Can't wait to go back to try some of their other food, drinks, and desserts...such a great variety of food inspired from countries all over the world! The best part is they hired Vikram Hegde @cocktailgod which means they will have an awesome team working the bar as well! - 2 years ago
