Asian Fusion restaurant Ekiben, with locations in Hampden and Fell’s Pt., and chef Steve Chu along with Canton restaurant NiHao’s chef Pichet Ong and Lydia Chang are collaborating on a special pop-up event tomorrow night, Thursday, September 17 with proceeds benefiting CureDuchenne.
The pop-up will be held one day only featuring a $58 two-person feast, available for pickup at NiHao on Boston Street. The menu includes XO Crab Rangoon with Maryland crab, soft goat cheese, and cream cheese in pastry served with spicy-sweet pineapple sambal, Salt & Pepper Lamb Chops, and Udon Carbonara. For dessert, the chefs will serve Butterscotch Pudding with pear and chocolate.
CureDuchenne is an organization discovered by Chu’s friend, Kevin Wong who died from cancer last month. Kevin’s oldest son, Albert, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy—a debilitating and aggressive illness with no cure. CureDuchenne provides support for families coping with Duchenne and funding for researchers working on a cure.
Guests may pre-order here. Proceeds to benefit CureDuchenne.
