In July, chef Lon Symensma will open Kaya Kitchen, creative Asian street food, inside Avanti Food & Beverage in LoHi. The new eatery will be located on Avanti’s second floor replacing Souk Shawarma. This will be the fourth project from chef Symensma’s ChoLon Restaurant Concepts, a group that just launched Concourse in the Stapleton neighborhood.
“We’re really excited to launch Kaya Kitchen at Avanti and introduce the community to our creative, yet approachable Asian cuisine,” Symensma said. “We think Kaya Kitchen will be an amazing addition to the Avanti collective, offering quick bites, and a flavorful and creative menu that will be the perfect complement for the bar crowd.”
When it opens at Avanti, Kaya Kitchen will serve modern interpretations and traditionally-inspired dishes including dim sum, banh mi sandwiches and noodle soups, as well as an array of salads popular throughout Asia. Menu items will include Thai green papaya salad, Saigon beef pho, Singaporean kaya toast, barbecue roast pork banh mi, and Vietnamese coffee.
