INTRODUCING LA COCINA CHINA
Let us re-introduce you to Christian Plotczyk, one-half of Salt & Brine and the new chef taking over the Time Out Market demo kitchen, the market’s only open-kitchen counter, through September 2019. The man behind the raw bar Salt & Brine has expanded his market offerings to include a Chinese kitchen called La Cocina China, conceived as an homage to his time as executive chef at some of South Beach’s trendiest Asian restaurants of yesteryear. The stellar bites from the fondly remembered China Grill, Pacific Time and Asia de Cuba come together on this menu, such as Plotczyk’s own improvised hot-and-sour fish in a vibrant, electric-orange sauce. If you were around to try the original dishes, the demo-kitchen experience will be a delicious throwback to the city’s culinary past. If not, welcome to a taste of retro-cool Miami.
