Han Chiang Decapitates A Pig For Munchies

Han_Chiang-marquee-by-MICHAEL-PERSICO

Munchies has another “Chef’s Night Out” videos, and this time they’re hanging out with Han Chiang, some of his crew from Han Dynasty, and a bunch of other Philly notables. It takes all of 49 seconds before the director shows the Rocky statue for the first time, but after that, things settle down into a kind of pinwheel of debauchery in which Han and his crew drink, talk Szechuan food, drink, talk shit, do shots, talk with Ben and Christina Miller from Barbacoa, eat some testicles, do more shots, eat a lamb eyeball taco, go to Amis, decapitate a pig, drink more, go to Prime Stache for wings (and more drinks), then head back to Han Dynasty for Szechuan hot pot and a philosophical walk-off where Han talks about playing Clash Of Clans and wonders where all the strippers are.

Really, it’s the kind of thing you have to see for yourself.

Amis Hosts Whole Lamb Dinner

Amis has always been a solid  restaurant—more casual than Vetri, but with a staff that was just as precise and an Italian menu that felt at once less  traditional and more restrained. But what truly elevates the experience here are all the things Amis does that Vetri doesn’t, from simple, comforting tastes like a piece of perfect buffalo mozzarella with black pepper to complicated, epic departures like the Beast of Amis menu—an ever-changing menagerie of whole animals utilized in the nose-to-tail style, always offering something surprising and new.   412 South 13th Street, Midtown Village, 215-732-2647.

Lamb is definitely having a bit of a moment here in Philly. There’s the Lamb Shack dinners at Zahav, the lamb menu at Mica last week, and lamb popping up on dinner menus all over town. But here’s a little bit more lamb for those of you who still haven’t had enough.

On Wednesday, February 18, chefs Brad Spence and Ned Maddock of Amis and Katie Parla of the food blog Parla Food will be hosting a whole lamb dinner at Amis Trattoria. While the chefs are cooking, Parla will talk about her time in Rome and discuss the traditional lamb-based fare of the culture.




The event begins at 6:30 pm and will cost $65 per person. Customers can also opt for a beverage pairing for an additional $30. Call 215-732-2647 for reservations. And check out the menu below.
