I get an unexpected note from a friend’s mom and tease out an exciting and whacky PARTY happening..*whispers* at my house…this October.
I finally muster up the energy to record an episode in 2021. My old pal Joe Nierstedt and my new pal Kev Nierstedt come on the show to discuss their pop-up KATSUBŌ (which I am currently obsessed with. I have nearly perfect attendance!) We talk what makes a ramen broth different from a tradtional stock and how they decided on their John’s Island Hot Chicken concept, Kinfolk. Joe and I are old friends from the NYC days of yore and we touch on why working in restaurants (even fancy ones!) doesn’t actually prepare you for running you own business, like, at all..
Here’s what I order at KATSUBŌ:
Shoyu (Chicken) Ramen add Kimchi and a seasoned egg, Hot Chicken Katsu ( I LOVE CHICKEN OK?) + a coke.
