Sauce and Bread Kitchen for their supper club, The Stew and have gone several times. mostly at Sauce and Bread Kitchen, but also at alternate locations. The coffee shop/cafe itself is religiously local and seasonal and is the home of both Crumb Bakery and Co-op Hot Sauce. While both of these are very good, their self imposed rules can be a little restrictive. The Stew, their monthly supper club, allows them to break out and get creative and for this episode, they were very creative. They did a spin on the food of a Hawaiian Luau (having never been to a Luau or even Hawaii). Hawaiian friends of theirs that consulted on the menu development said that while some were pretty close to authentic, some were very creative. In any case, the food we were served was very good. We started out with a dish called Puri Puri that took a little work from the diner to put it together. It consisted of very "balls" with very thin shells. We were to crack them open to fill them with the Avocado Citrus Kissed Salmon and Sauce with which they were served. The shell was like a very thin cracker, the salmon was very fresh and had a nice citrus flavor along with pureed avocado. The sauce was like a Salsa Verde and added a tart spicy flavor. It was a nice start with a very interesting dish that tasted really good.
Onigiri Roll with House Made Ham, Egg, Rice and Umebashi Plum Sauce wrapped in Nori. Onigiri is a roll with rice, and some sort of salted or sour food, and frequently, umebashi (salted plums), in this case the ham stood in as the salted portion and the Umebashi was served as part of the spicy sauce served with the side salad. It was very different, but it did taste good, despite the burn.
