Chimaek: Korean Chicken & Beer

AdvertisementAcclaimed Chef Noel Cruz of Gangchu in historic Seminole Heights will bring a true chimaek experience in the Epicurean Theatre, with an elevated spin you won’t get elsewhere.
Pronounced “chi-mek”, the literal pairing of Korean fried chicken and beer from Korean chikin ‘fried chicken’ and maekju ‘beer’ – an epic pairing no one can deny. With a rendition on almost every culture, Korean fried chicken specifically dates back to the Joseon dynasty, yet really received notoriety for being paired with beer in 2002 during the Korea–Japan World Cup. From there, chimaek has taken off as a cultural phenomenon.
From staples like their crispy fried chicken to additional Korean street-foods, this multi-course tasting will take guests on a flavor journey abroad, each paired with hand-curated brews. Chef Noel has extensive experience running top restaurants around the country and working under some of the top celebrity chefs of our generation.
