Wednesday, April 26, 7pm: Aloha Eats: A Hawaiian Feast With Kiki Aranita and Chris Vacca of Poi Dog

Price $150.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

In case you haven’t heard, Kiki Aranita and Chris Vacca of the fantastic food truck, Poi Dog Snack Shop, is opening a brick-and-mortar Poi Dog on 21st Street between Chestnut and Sansom Streets. So, it’s time for a celebration, Hawaiian style! Kiki (who is originally from Hawaii and Hong Kong) and Chris (from the Philly area) started the truck because they longed for Hawaiian food 5,000 miles away from the islands and wanted to share their experiences of what people eat in Hawaii with mainlanders. And we couldn’t be happier that they did! Prior to committing themselves fully to food, both Chris and Kiki taught Classics and Ancient Greek, but at COOK, they will bring their modern approach to Hawaiian fare with a menu consisting of ahi poke with uni on nori; poisson cru, pipikaula, pa’i’ai (Tahitian style ahi with coconut milk, Hawaiian dried beef, pounded taro); chicken adobo fried chicken with rice and atchara (pickled green papaya and carrot); Maui lavender bibingka (Filipino coconut rice cake) with mamaki tea cream. Say aloha to deliciousness!
