Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
Located in the heart of South Beach, Sing Sing Karaoke opened its first Florida location in November 2012. With two other locations in New York City, Sing Sing Karaoke was already a well-known moniker for over a decade. After introducing the concept of karaoke rooms to South Florida and having a successful first year, the Miami Beach location made national news when Beyonce crashed one of their karaoke rooms, surprising three fans that happened to be singing one of her songs.
But something was missing from the bar. Guests were treated to 17 karaoke rooms, superior sound quality, a full bar, and access to over 120,000 karaoke songs...but if they were hungry, they were out of luck. “We had plans to serve Asian-style tapas from the beginning, but finding the right chef took some time”, says Kellie Pilicer, owner of Sing Sing Karaoke in Miami Beach. “A year went by before I came across Box of Chacos - a food truck out of Fort Lauderdale, and I knew from the first bite that I had to steal the chef away! Not only were the tacos delicious, but the quality of the ingredients and spot-on Asian flavors warmed my Korean heart.”
The chef, it turns out, is David Peck, owner of Box of Chacos. Peck is a seasoned professional with tenure at such places as Mark’s Las Olas, Nobu Dallas, and Tap 42. Peck’s focus is great food with ingredients that are fun, flavorful, and made with all the love and passion honed by a classically trained chef. He starts by using a variety of ingredients that all begin life deeply rooted in Asian flavors. From there Old Mother Mexico comes in with a traditional style salsas and ingredients to help round out the experience of an Asian-style taco. Think all-natural duck, slowly roasted to perfection and glazed with honey, soy, ginger and garlic then finished with a miso sauce and quick-pickled cabbage, served on a warm corn tortilla.
When they speak of their new partnership, Peck says, “Sing Sing Karaoke cares a lot about what they do, and do it right - which is exactly the ideal that Chacos is built on. We're proud of the food we do, and working with someone who cares as much as we do is a rarity. We're stoked to be able to bring our concept to South Beach and couldn't imagine a better home for it”.
The weekend menu will consist of all the popular items along with a few cool twists designed specifically for Sing Sing. It will feature a variety of tacos like their signature Kimchi Burger Taco and Pink Chaco to items like Bang Mai Bulgogi Buns, and even a few desserts down the road. Last month, Zagat noted the Chacos concepts as being one of the hottest in the U.S.
A soft opening is planned for June 19th, with an official tasting party on June 27th, 2014.
