As Uno Immanivong prepares to open her new restaurant Chino in the Trinity Groves area of Dallas, she is busy bouncing from a variety of events across the United States. The former contestant on the ABC cheffy program The Taste is in hot demand. On May 3 Uno will be in Dallas to serve up the second pop-up dinner in Dallas giving us a glimpse of what her cooking style is all about. This is also an opportunity for the curious to experience a foreshadowing of Chino.
The dinner will actually have two servings at a cost of $49.97per person which includes wine pairings. The venue is also in Trinity Groves at the new 3015 cooking school which we have also been talking about recently. Go to this website to reserve your seat.
Here is a list of what you can expect (the coconut ice cream cone with the mole ganache sounds wonderful):
