Two Vietnamese-born women chefs are bringing their Taste of Asia dinner series to Noord with a feast served on banana leaves.

Das Good Inc. chef-owners Anh Vongbandith and Savuol Ngo will serve up a family-style spread at the second Taste of Asia event on October 23rd. The chefs will pile the leaf-covered table high with meats, vegetables, rice, and herbs, plus a plethora of dipping sauces. According to tradition, guests dive in with their hands (or an optional pair of chopsticks).

The meal ends with a dessert of sweet coconut sticky rice and fresh fruit, and guests are welcome to BYO.

Check out the full menu below. Seatings are available at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., and tickets are $45 per person, not including gratuity. You can get yours here.
