Rostov’s Coffee

September 30th, 2016 Posted by Drinks 0 thoughts on “Rostov’s Coffee”

We proudly are serving Rostov’s Coffee. This week it’s their Kona.

 

Kona coffee is the market name for coffee (Coffea arabica) cultivated on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa in the North and South Kona Districts of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is one of the most expensive coffees in the world. Only coffee from the Kona Districts can be described as “Kona”. With the weather of sunny mornings, clouds or rain in the afternoon, a little wind, mild nights combined with porous, mineral-rich volcanic soil create favorable coffee growing conditions.

 

Some of us haven’t been to Hawaii, but one day, oh yes one day….. Until then, might as well have some of the amazing coffee they have to offer. Come on in and have a cup! If your lucky our Sous Chef Gray Curry can tell about how it was growing up on the Island.

This is our play on an Italian Wedding soup, The Betty Wedding Soup. Made with our house meatballs (Stock Provisions), North Carolina Shrimp, Curly Kale, Rudy’s Exotic Mushrooms, Red split lentils, house made stock, fresh herbs and spices. It’s surf n’ turf in a soup bowl. Perfect for a rainy day, or any day for that matter.

 

Jordan of Richmond said “This soup has changed my thoughts on soup, food and life.”

 

It’s the perfect balance of flavors and heat. Wanna try? Come stop by!

Pulled Pork Croquette. Our house smoked and pulled pork butt, fried golden brown, served with Byrds Mill grits, Cannon’s Pig Paint, pickled red onion and fresh herbs.

 

It’s delicious.

 

Trust me.

Daily Pasta

Just like mom use to make. Well not not my Mom. My Mom made the pasta that came out of a box and was on sale at Ukrop’s. That’s right, Ukrop’s.

 

I guess that’s why we all took this so far. We were deprived as children and now, we have serious issues.

 

We serve fresh, homemade pasta everyday. It’s just what we do, because once we tasted the difference of a warm bowl of homemade pasta, vs. that stuff out da’ box?? No contest.

 

That only lead to more questions. What have I been doing with my life? What’s the meaning of it all? How many other mistakes have I been making?

 

Well, we had some serious life changes to make. Also, some pasta.

Love you Mom.

Pork Chop

Pork Chop! Yeah baby. It is served with house made grit cakes, Seasonal vegetables and a red eye gravy. This is a dish that Andrew Jackson would be proud.

 

Story has it that He and everyone got wasted the night before important documents were to be signed. Think it was the Decloration of Independence. Just kidding he was 9 when that signing happened. Anyways the next day of course they were hungover. Andrew said to the chef that he wanted something to wake them up and as red as the color of their eyes, before they went to do important things. The chef then whipped up a Gravy with coffee and the meat drippings. Wallah!!! Red Eye Gravy was born.

 

Thank you Andrew Jackson and Boys for getting wasted.
