TwitterFlash: Kitchenette Unveils Spanish Colony Menu for Mission Street Food
Learning about colonialism wasn't this fun in high school. Kitchenette just Twitter-announced the nine-item menu for its first-time star turn this Thursday, June 11, at Mission Street Food. Last month, Kitchenette (and LRE catering) owner Douglas Monsalud told SFoodie it'd be a "colony concept": Dishes Spanish in origin, as tweaked by its former colonies. Here's a three-course slice of world history, covering Mexico, the Philippines, and Argentina, in that order: house-cured beef tongue "bacon" with savory corn humitas and salsa verde ($10); adobo of Liberty Farm duck gizzards with spring garlic and pork belly ($9); "knuckle sandwich": Marin Sun Farms pork knuckle braised in torrontes with roasted apricot chimichurri ($10). Collectively, it's European domination's finest hour.
