Food: 8/10 Drinks: N/A Vibes: 7.5/10
Midwest Foodie: We were going for something a little out of our comfort zone and took a classmate’s recommendation to check out Kin. We started out with some fried potstickers stuffed with crab that were quite tasty. We had an oxtail ramen with a fried egg and a vegan dish that had a yellow bean sauce base. The food was good but woah was there a lot of garlic. I’m Italian and I was still blown away! Happy I went and enjoyed my meal, but wouldn’t rave about the food. One thumb up.
West Coast Boozer: TBD! Pretty standard drink menu – soft drinks/lemonade…with some colorful fruit spritzer options mixed in. No alc as of yet but I’m thinking that’s soon to change. Will update this post as soon as I get my Kin drinking on!
East Coast Vibes: “But did you die?” reads the banner above the kitchen, which is open to the cozy restaurant tucked along Jefferson highway. The waiter explained you’re supposed to think it’s a moving, metaphorical motto for the food and restaurant…but it’s actually a quote from The Hangover. Kind of sums up the place. Maybe lacking a little bit of heart but definitely a playful, energetic spot with regulars and excited newbies slurping in the tight quarters together. 7.5/10
