TAKE THIS OUT // What to Order From Kin Kao, Old Bird, Yasma, El Santo and Dosanko

Take-out has become a coping mechanism for diners and restaurants, helping both endure the long, dark weirdness of 2020. Over the months to come — in the stressed out space between today’s bubbles and tomorrow’s vaccines — Take This Out will focus on the delicious things we can all take home.

Larb with pork

We kick of this edition with Terrence Feng, owner of Kin Kao

What dish do you think that everyone should try?

Larb (Pork or Tofu). Well known in Thai food culture as “The Salad” of choice, it simply (and literally) translates to “meat salad”. While we offer a great meat-less alternative with tofu, the best way to experience this dish is to have it with ground pork. The mint leaves tie in all the brilliantly balanced flavours, giving your taste buds a mouth watering punch that quickly gets you addicted and makes you crave more.

Available: 7 days a week, 5-9pm

Where to order: call 604-558-1125 for takeout, order via kinkao.ca or find us on UberEats and Doordash.

Salted Egg Yolk Fried Chicken

Next up is Sophia Lin, owner of Main Street’s Old Bird restaurant…

What dish do you think that everyone should try?

Salted Egg Yolk Fried Chicken. Old Bird’s salted egg yolk chicken is an umami bomb. It’s salty, sweet and juicy, perfect to pair with a bottle of Tsingtao.

Available: Wednesday to Sunday, 4-9pm

Where to order: Oldbird.ca (pick up), Fromto, Ubereats and Doordash.

Tamal

Heading to New West now, to pay a visit to El Santo, and visiting chef from Mexico, Marcela Ramirez…

What dish do you think that everyone should try?

Tamal. Choose from 3 kinds: refried pinto beans and Oaxaca cheese, adobo marinated chicken, or slow cooked pork. Made from a place of gratitude and love, the artisanal tamales are made with my molé based on my grandmother’s recipe. Gluten-free and nut-free, these tamales can be enjoyed right away or stored in the fridge or freezer for another day.

Available: Wednesday & Thursday: 4-8pm, Friday – Sunday: 12-8pm
