Saigon Asian fusion restaurant 52/3 Kitchen & Bar has come up with a novel way to mark the historic occasion of the so-called Peace Summit about to be held in Hanoi between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US president Donald Trump.
The restaurant is offering a limited edition dish called “TK Burgers” and a “Peace” cocktail. The dish comprises two burgers served side-by-side topped with US and North Korean flags, each with a dusting of edible gold leaf.
The Trump Burger is served with premium beef and a feta cheese dressing, while the Kim Burger comes with fried chicken and gojuchang sauce – a savoury, sweet and spicy fermented condiment just perfect for an occasion that’s sure to serve up its own equally tasty moments as our favourite hirsute pair to poke fun at, work their way through their summit agenda.
Meanwhile, the Peace cocktail, served up in what appears to be a rocket about to blast off with dry ice coursing out from beneath it, attempts to infuse both cultures with a special message of peace.
When the “warhead” is removed, it reveals a popcorn-ginseng-infused concoction garnished with flowers, and really looks “da bomb”!
52/3 Kitchen & Bar is also running some promotions to celebrate this coming together of these two uncomfortable bedfellows, including opportunities to win a free meal for two people and discounts off your bill.
52/3 Kitchen & Bar is at Dong Du St., District 1, HCMC. For more info, click HERE
