Tanuki To Go: Mischievously Gourmet Asian in a Box

Tanuki To Go: Mischievously Gourmet Asian in a Box

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.

Tanuki To Go Chefs

The Chefs behind Tanuki To go are, Chef Adam Christopher Norwig; Personal Chef, Caterer, Event Planner, Hospitality Consultant, Concierge Services – Available for travel, and Chef Jonathan Leichliter who is also a Chef at Justice Snow’s. Find them on Insta: @Chef_Adam_in_Aspen & @Chef_Leichliter. Your lovely hostess greeting you at the door is Kirra Sherman (check out her website, it’s more than likely that you may be needing her Fearless Intuition coaching to something brave like what they have done with their street food).
