Kome LA Street Food's residency at Star of Kings in Kings Cross takes on a new twist as the World Cup approaches. During the tournament Kome will be doing daily specials based on one of the teams playing that day. E.g. they’ll be doing Acarajé (a beach snack from the state of Bahia) when Brazil plays, chorizo croquetas when Spain plays and Dukkochi (Korean chicken skewers) when South Korea plays and many more. Plus all the games will be on in the pub on the big screen.
"Kome, currently the resident kitchen at the Star of King’s in King’s Cross, whips up LA-inspired street food. Their menu is a mash-up of cuisines that are prominent in the Los Angeles food scene, which have proved to be a huge success with punters at the Star.
With the World Cup fast approaching and with the Star having three huge screens to watch it on, they've decided to do something that no where else is doing in London. Each day they’ll be showing all the games live and Kome will be creating unique dishes that match up with one of the teams playing that day. For example they’ll be doing Acarajé (a beach snack from the state of Bahia) when Brazil plays, chorizo croquetas when Spain plays and Dukkochi (Korean chicken skewers) when South Korea plays and many more. Their aim is to target the various different nationalities in London by luring them with food that reminds them of home and fuels them to spur on their team. The founder Jack says:
“Living in Latin America for over four years, I picked up numerous recipes that showcase the vibrant and varied street food that one can find from Cartagena to Cordobá and Mexico City to Montevideo. With the World Cup in Latin America, it’s the perfect opportunity to show how their food is ideal for combining with Asian flavours - one only has to look at the rise in popularity of Peruvian/Japanese fusion with the likes of Nobu and Lima leading the way - and this is where LA provides the perfect setting for this.”
The Star is taking group bookings to ensure people get a table."
