Walking into Tanuki To Go Asian Fusion, otherwise known as Mischievously Gourmet Asian in a Box, I was immediately brought in by the energy and humor of the Chefs, and couldn’t wait to taste all the food (coming soon).
We are loving the pop-up concept that is bringing a new vitality to our valley, and Tanuki To Go, based out of Bootsy Bellow’s kitchen is a most welcome addition to Aspen. With menu item names that include; “Me So Corny Miso Soup,” and “Brokeback Mountain Town Fried Rice,” their abounding senses of humor compliment their seriously delicious food.
