Sakaya Kitchen to Roll Out Dim Ssam Food Truck
"Munch and move on" will be Sakaya Kitchen's new creed come September 12, when chef/owner Richard Hales plans to launch his Dim Ssam à Gogo food truck.
Expect the same prepared-from-scratch Asian food that has made Sakaya a midtown Miami hit -- natural beef, poultry, and pork; organic dairy; local produce; biodegradable and recycled containers; and so forth. The mobile menu culls eats from both the dim ssam Sunday brunch and regular restaurant offerings. Half-size portions of the "eat with your hands" fare ranges from $1 to $6; if you want a full portion, simply say, "Double me up."
(LA Ink) artist Adam Foreman, whom Hales met on a recent trip to Los
Angeles. "He created a tattoo for my right arm, and while doing it (five hours), we discussed working together on creating a sick logo for the
truck and restaurant."
Dim Ssam à Gogo will drive bao
around during lunch and dinner hours and will also serve late-night revelers (plus private events catering, etc.). The opening day
("fingers crossed") coincides with the Fall for the Arts Festival.
Sakaya fans can follow the truck's progress via Facebook and Twitter.
