Wednesday, November 1, 7pm: An Evening with Tyler Akin of Stock

Price $155.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Philadelphians are equally (if not more) opinionated about their pho as they are with their cheesesteak. And that’s no surprise, as Philadelphia has the largest Vietnamese American population on the East Coast. Philadelphia chefs engage in spirited debates on where their fave pho is served. One such local favorite: Stock. A former Zahav sous chef, Tyler Akin opened Stock in 2014 in bustling Fishtown, across the street from Pizzeria Beddia (fun fact: both Stock and Beddia don’t have a phone number). While Akin’s 18-seat BYOB specializes in pho, his menu features other Southeast Asian dishes, as reflected in his COOK debut menu: tom kha gai (coconut soup with chicken, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, galangal, cilantro); som tam (spicy papaya salad with garlic, tamarind, herbs, long bean, tomato, dried shrimp); Mekhong whisky braised beef shank and sticky rice; and pandan tofu mousse.
