The menu for the “Red Panda” pop-up will feature three innovative takes on noodle dishes from around the world like Korean tteok-bokki (a savory dish using rice cakes almost shaped like penne or gnocchi in a spicy red sauce), a compound salad, and a dessert.
“We’re really trying to be less pretentious about what we love to cook as we get older. We want to put new spins on dishes that people love like macaroni and do something different with them. Something approachable and novel at the same time, we’ve started calling it Extreme Comfort Food just amongst ourselves.”– ELIOT HILLIS, CULINARY DIRECTOR, ORLANDO MEATS
The pop-up is the first of a series for Hillis, and stalwart Super Friend Seth Parker, where they’ll be using the events as a way to test out new menu items and concepts. It will take place behind The Guesthouse at 1321 N. Mills Avenue [GMap] and they’ll stay open until they run out of food – so get there early.
