K’óoben pop-up

Tue, Jan 30, 6-9 pm
Glass House
Tickets: $100


Food collective K’óoben (Mayan for “kitchen” or “stove”) is a collaboration between chefs Gustavo Romero (Oro by Nixta), José Alarcón (previously Centro, Vivir), and Noe Lara (Pints & Paddles), and mixologists Mike Hidalgo (Rumba), Daniel Guerrero (Colita), and Daniel D Torres (Rumba). They describe their work as “a space that belongs to everyone but does not belong to anyone—a sacred place for Mexican families, meeting point of collaboration and coexistence with family and friends, with one goal: to keep alive the roots of Mexican and Latin cuisine.” 

For this unique pop-up experience, the K’óoben collective has invited guest chefs Yia Vang (Union Hmong Kitchen, Vinai), Peter Bian and Linda Cao (Saturday Dumpling Co.), and Baaska Tegshbileg (Real Wasabi, Cobble Social House) to explore their immigrant experiences that shaped them and the Minnesota influences that define them today. Guests will be invited to sample mouthwatering dishes and specialty beverages at each of the six chef stations as they mingle and enjoy music with Samuel Sanchez & DJ Giaan and storytelling from the chefs themselves.
