Dale Talde is working like crazy in preparation for TALDE's opening in early November, but he was rad enough to give us a sneak peak of the menu.
Let me tell you this: it looks pretty fucking amazing.
While this menu is tentative and we're assured that there's WAY more to come, we over here at FIPS Headquarters can't stop drooling.
Check it out:
Pretzel pork and chive dumplings with spicy mustard
Grilled Lemongrass Chicken with romaine, pickled shallots, and spicy peanuts
Soups and Salads
Iceberg wedge salad with Chinese bacon and “sri-rancha” dressing
Market Ramen Soup with smoked tofu, scallion, and white soy
