At My Venues

Grilled Octopus

"Fat Cats does octopus very well with the right amount of char and firm but tender to the bite. The dish is very bright with citrus, lemon preserve, olives, cilantro, garlic and cashews."

Both the braised pork belly and cashew crusted tofu options are topped with a touch of hoisin, carrot, cilantro, pickled daikon and jalapenos. The dough is made fresh and the buns are steamed to order with just the right amount of sticky and sweet."
