The fifth installment of Aces of Taste happened last Saturday with much anticipation. Social media heavy hitter Chef Arash Kharat was chosen to be the featured chef and was asked to create tequila inspired dinner. He brought his unique take on Méxican cuisine and provided guests a delicious culinary journey. The dinner started off with mini smoked shrimp quesadillas and their homemade queso fresco. Following the intro appetizer guests feasted on duck confi zobe and miso crema. Each course was paired with an Avión Tequila cocktail to showcase the versatility of the spirit.
Traditionally Aces serves each course to guests, but this dinner had an entrée line. Chef Arash wanted to provide patrons the control to create their own dinner plate. Pit roasted baby goat and smoked chili braised chicken were the proteins and accompanied by borracho beans topped with chicharrones. The street style fried rice and roasted sweet corn with coffee mayo was deliciously memorable.
Rounding up the delicious meal, Chef Arash created a fantastic tres leches infused with Cointreau and drizzled with a Cointreau Noir reduction.
Overall the food was stellar and Aces pushes to create an inclusive dining experience for all guests. The experience is elevated by the chef’s attention to detail and the constant involvment of the dining patrons.
Once again, Aces provided a unique and modern twist to traditional Méxican cuisine and dining.
