Last night Han Chiang hosted a beer dinner at Han Dynasty with Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal. The dinner featured five-courses and 15 or so plates of Han’s fiery food paired with Stillwater beers. Strumke, a gypsy brewer specializes in farmhouse style beers which pair especially well with spicy food.
Chiang was his bombastic self, stating “any American food, I can do better.” He made this statement as he dropped off a plate of sichuan French fries which were a compelling reason that he might be right. Chiang also stated he wants to do a food truck. No timeframe but he wants it to operate at Temple, where “there are no rules.” Chiang has also been scouting locations for a Han Dynasty in the East Village of New York.
