One Night in Bang Chop featuring South Indian Cuisine

605 W. Lake St., Chicago, IL 60661

Continuing our ‘Eat the World’ series, from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - let’s now transport ourselves to the southern coastal state of Kerala, India. Land of coconut trees and rocky beaches, Kerala is unlike other states within India. The cuisine heavily utilizes coconut, aromatic spices, seafood, beef and as a result the flavor combinations are truly unique. Add on top of that the centuries of influence from Portuguese and Arabic cuisine, you may be surprised by some of the flavors you'll experience. 

Our Guest Chef Margaret Pak whose passion for food and travel has created a great following on her instagram as @marzlet and now to the kitchen at Kimski and Bang Chop as she continues to cook the food she loves for the lucky few who can join us for one night only on Wed Dec. 5 from 7pm to 9pm.  Limited seatings so please purchase your ticket(s) soon!  A portion of the proceeds will benefit Kerala Flood Relief
