We are a monthly pop-up restaurant that began in Seattle in April 2013. We are trained cooks and chefs that wanted to offer the diners of Seattle something a little different and something that we all liked to cook and eat. Our influences are fresh, local ingredients, the Seattle food culture, and our own food experiences.
Congee is a dish that is popular in many Asian cuisines. It seems fairly simple: rice porridge. Many Western diners have possibly eaten congee at their local Chinese restaurant. What makes Kraken Congee different is that we expose our diners to flavors that they may not have previously associated with congee. We've offered congee with spicy, sour, and sweet flavors. We've made pork belly adobo congee, squid ink congee, crab curry congee, and five spice duck confit congee, just to name a few. We've mixed modern techniques with traditional methods of preparation. We are not afraid to push the envelope with our flavors, techniques, and dishes.
