Wok Star Supper Club, huge success at Drunken Dragon

Thank you everyone who came out to celebrate my Wok Star Supper Club at Drunken Dragon this past Sunday. Everyone raved about the exotic flavors of each dish, what a successful dinner gathering to conquer the summer blues and celebrate what would have been my mom’s birthday, my mom would have approved!

Crack Ribs was my fav dish, made with sambal, tender, fall off the bone!

Chef Xavier Torres had a few surprises for us, see menu below. This is the part I love most about organizing these events, I work with the chefs and staff to make it the best experience for you and your taste buds!

We had other surprises, the General Manager, Ryan Hamilton arranged for their art gallery two doors down to be open so we could view some pretty amazing art before going through a back alley to visit Foxhole Bar. It was a lovely evening with 3 activities rolled into one. Thanks also to Alex Tanaka the manager and Alexia Tapanes who was so patient with my wish list. And of course, Voss who hydrated us all evening.

I hope you’ll return and try other dishes and don’t forget their Korean BBQ, and say that’s what you want to do when you make your reservations, not all tables have the BBQ grill.  Visit Drunken Dragon for more details.

Note: I don’t get paid to organize these events. I do it because I love introducing people to good Asian cuisine in Miami!  I do get 2 complimentary dinners.
