I wrote earlier this week about the four-year-old ginseng-infused soju at Saveurs de Coree in Ju’er Hutong and promised a follow-up on a planned Korean food and cocktail event at the sibling restaurant in nearby Xiang’er Hutong. Here it is:
The booze / bibimbap / barbecue deal goes down next Tuesday, April 3, from 6:30 PM to 11: 30 PM.
For RMB69, you get a choice of bibimbap or pear-juice marinaded beef strips, both with side dishes, and one Korea-themed cocktail. (The regular price is RMB88 to RMB108, depending on the cocktail.)
Stephanie Rocard of Mao Mao Chong will be on hand to make the drinks, which include the Cinn City, the Kimjito, the Ginseng Tonic and the Soju Collins. Additional cocktails are RMB25, as is Cass beer, while barley tea vodka shots are RMB10.
This is a good chance to try some interesting food and drink combinations at a reasonable price. (Note: the kitchen closes at 10:15 PM.)
