Starting next week (Friday, 4/8) and continuing through the end of the month, Local Rhoots (1301 Belmont Ave.) will be hosting a special pop-up event every Friday and Saturday.
On the menu: a customize-your-own style noodle bowl with Jewish roots. Think handmade noodles with slow-braised meat or black bean fritters, matzo balls, in your choice of broth, topped with fresh herbs and pickled veggies of your choosing. Bowls start at $15 and each is customizable from a menu of items made by Sam Rodgers and her team. They can be made gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian. The menu will be rounded out with a few kids items and appetizers. Drink options include both non-alcoholic drinks and a full bar including beer, wine, and even cocktails.
The pop-up will be held inside Local Rhoots, allowing customers a dine-in experience.
If you're wondering why Local Rhoots is serving up matzo balls and Asian-style noodles, it's the influence and idea of Sam, who was raised in America but Jewish. She notes that during Christmas, she has fond memories of eating Chinese food on Christmas, since it's one of the few types of cuisine that is always open on Christmas Day/Eve. It spurred her obsession with Asian-influenced food and this pop-up allows her to marry that with her own Jewish background.
Want to go? Sam suggests reservations for opening night for groups of any size. After that, reservations will be reserved for parties of 6 or more. To make a reservation, please call (541) 340-4364.
