The Chef: Colleen
The Menu: Today's lunch delivered an exciting mix of elements that Colleen whipped up in no time. Chinese-style scallion-stuffed buns and a wholesome curried blend of tofu, broccoli, and potatoes graced our Friday plates. The toasted sesame salad added a familiar Asian accent and tied it all together without overpowering the buns or curry-rice centerpiece.
The Goods: This meal definitely fell under the creative umbrella of Asian Fusion. The salad's cool temperature and delicious combo of toasted sesame seed oil and rice vinegar could have passed for a Japanese appetizer, while the shepherd's purse buns would've satisfied any dim-sum fan, and the curry's balanced sweetness of coconut with a lemony bite represented Thai-inspired cuisine.
