How would you like to “Travel the World In Just One Bite?” Sounds pretty intriguing, right? Frank and I recently had the opportunity to “Travel the World In Just One Bite” with the new Simply Street Food Menu at the gorgeous Omni Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Not only did we stay in a beautiful hotel with amazing customer service, but we had the opportunity to taste some fabulous dishes and cocktails with the Noe Restaurant & Bar Manager, Tyler Dow. It was a culinary experience I will never forget!
What is this new Street Food Menu I am talking about? I have one word to describe it – UNFORGETTABLE! Omni Hotels & Resorts showcase the talents of its versatile chefts with the debut of its new “Simply Street Food” menu, which spotlights the best street foods from Boston to Brazil to Omni guests nationwide.
This year, Omni Hotels & Resorts has paired up with chefs from partnering Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) properties for a competition to create a dish that celebrates an authentic street food from their home region. More than 160 dishes were submitted by chefs from 56 countries. Ultimately, only six dishes were selected to be featured on the Simply Street Food menu – three dishes from Omni chefs, and three from GHA member chefs.
“Each year Omni invites our culinary team to circle the globe through our Flavors of the World program, to experience unique regional flavors first-hand and find new inspiration to create a menu that is both innovative and appealing for the modern American table” said Stephen Rosenstock, Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “By partnering with Global Hotel Alliance chefs, we are able to offer our guests authentic cuisine from the Middle East to Asia to the Americas, drawing from our GHA network.”
The Simply Street Food Menu will be available in Omni Hotels & Resorts bars and lounges from January 2013 through March 2013. The featured dishes are:
Famous Peddler’s Char Kway Teow
Chef Andy Oh, Pan Pacific Orchard in Singapore
Short Rib and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich
Chef Gerard Tice, Omni Parker House
Chicken Musakhan Sandwich
Chef Moh’d Alla Alaham, Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi
Citrus Ancho Braised Lamb Tostado
Chef Scott Mole, Omni Bedford Springs
Duck Empanada with Smoked Tomato Mayonnaise
Chef Gene Moss, Omni La Mansion
Acarajé de Orixá
Chef Josemar Passos, Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte in Bahia, Brazil
“As the Flavors of the World program continues to evolve, we look forward to offering our guests the excitement of new culinary discoveries that only Omni chefs can create – be it in the bars, signature restaurants, or banquet service,” said Rosenstock.
It was so hard to pick a favorite among the dishes. Each dish had it’s own unique flavor and style, making it one of the most unique tasting experiences I’ve ever had. Be sure to visit your local Omni Hotels & Resorts and check out the Simply Street Food Menu for yourself.
