It is our great honor to announce that Mercer Kitchen is officially a new Little Soya client!
Mercer Kitchen, the in-house restaurant at the sleek and sophisticated Mercer Hotel, is the culinary creation of world-famous Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The internationally renowned French chef is simply one of the best in the world, and he has opened a number of three and four star restaurants worldwide. His culinary vision has revolutionized the way we eat, and that’s why it’s such a tremendous honor for Little Soya to be a featured ingredient in several dishes at his New York eatery Mercer Kitchen.
Since opening in 1998, Mercer Kitchen has been a culinary hotspot that has attracted tourists, celebrities, and local foodies alike. The beautiful restaurant is located in the basement of a historic 1800s building, and its exposed brick walls, candlelit sconces, and communal table gives it a sexy, timeless, iconic look.
Mercer Kitchen features an American Provencal menu where fresh, seasonal ingredients are showcased in a simple yet elegant style where every flavor shines through and delights the palate. In a restaurant where just a few simple ingredients can come together to create compelling, mesmerizing flavors, it only makes sense that Little Soya, the best tasting soy sauce in the universe, would be a favorite ingredient of the chefs.
Chef Chris Beischer told us simply, “Little Soya makes my food taste better.”
Currently, Little Soya is a featured ingredient in four delightful dishes, including:
Crispy Rice Sushi, Sashimi Salmon, Chipotle Mayo and Ponzu
Sushi rice is crisped and then topped with a spicy mayo and thin slices of sashimi salmon. The salmon is glazed with sweet Little Soya ponzu and garnished with cilantro and mint.
Tuna Spring Roll with Soy Bean Puree
Sashimi grade tuna is seasoned with pickled ginger, wrapped in a spring roll wrapper and then crisped. It is sliced and served with a purée of soybeans, cilantro with a touch of garlic. Little Soya soy sauce and green Tabasco garnish the plate.
Steamed Shrimp Salad with Avocado, Mushroom, Tomato, Champagne Vinaigrette
This salad is composed of organic baby lettuces, avocado, diced tomatoes, sliced mushrooms and freshly steamed shrimp. It is dressed with our ‘house vinaigrette’ (olive oil, Little Soya soy sauce, truffle juice and lemon juice) and creamy champagne vinaigrette.
Prime Niman Ranch New York Strip, Gingered Shitake Mushrooms, Caramel Soy Infused Sauce, French Fries
A prime Niman Ranch New York Strip is grilled and topped with gingered shiitake mushrooms, simmered broccolini and a sauce made from reduced Little Soya soy sauce, honey, lime juice and butter. French fries are served alongside.
