By Emma RuggieroThe LA TimesA LA restaurant chain that offers Asian-style dishes at its flagship restaurants has a new menu item, dubbed “LA Kings asian cuisine.”
The new menu has three dishes: chicken kung pao, grilled chicken with broccoli, rice and green bean sprouts; prawn prawn curry, fried prawns, and pork chorizo with garlic aioli and prawn shrimps; and ponzu, pork rice with rice and shrimp.
It was created by the LA Kings, who have also recently expanded into other Asian-inspired dishes like baklava and fried tofu, with plans to expand into more flavors.
“I am so excited to introduce LA Kings asians cuisine to our fans,” said Kevin Chou, the Kings’ executive vice president of food and beverage.
“It’s an incredibly flavorful, refreshingly authentic Asian-influenced menu that will continue to evolve as we expand our dining experiences and our menu offerings.”
The Kings also announced the addition of a second, more traditional LA Thai restaurant, called the Los Angeles Thai Kitchen, that will be located in the same building where the Kings and Thai Kitchen are located.
“We’re thrilled to open the Los LA Thai Kitchen to our LA fans,” Chou said.
“This restaurant will be a destination for our LA Kings fans to enjoy authentic LA Thai food, including its signature soup and salad.”
The Los Angeles Kings’ new menu items are set to launch in May 2018, with a debut at the upcoming season.
