One half of a Chinese menu double-bill has arrived at Boca Park, launching a casual dining concept ahead of a full-service restaurant and wine bar promised to be coming very soon.
The counter-service Kosher Chinglish is now open within one side of a 2,027-square-foot space previously occupied by The Melting Pot, close to the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Merialdo Lane.
Preparing meals certified by Va’ad HaKashrus of Las Vegas, under the supervision of Rabbi Shea Harlig and Rabbi Tziv Bronstein, diners can order takeout or dine in at a handful of indoor tables and also head to the outdoor patio.
Featuring a Hong Kong-inspired menu from chef Po Fai Lam, the much larger Chinglish Wine Bar is almost ready for its own debut right next door, and will share some of the same dishes as its informal neighbor.
Committed to creating its compact menu with quality ingredients, appetizers include crispy vegetarian, or chicken egg rolls, Poh Poh’s chicken dumplings, a hot and sour soup described as the “Rabbi’s favorite,” plus rice, noodles, and and stir-fried bok choy.
Among the nine entrees all served with jasmine rice, Kosher Chinglish provides its own spin on familiar favorites, including lemon chicken, scallion beef stir fry, sweet and sour, or kung pao chicken, salt and pepper tilapia, and the ground turkey ma po tofu. A range of desserts are also in the works.
Kosher Chinglish, 8704 W. Charleston Boulevard, Suite 103, 702-935-2055. Open Sunday to Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then from 5:30 to 9 p.m., closing at 3 p.m. on Friday and all day Saturday.
