Ghost Kitchens SA is Proud to Introduce Its First Original Menu Which Includes the Concha Burger
Ghost Kitchens SA, a ghost kitchen concept introduced earlier this year by Chef Adrian Cruz, in partnership with Chef Stephen Paprocki of The CO-OP SA and Texas Black Gold Garlic and Chef Iverson Brownell, also of The CO-OP SA as well as Fork and Garden, is proud to introduce its first original menu.
Chef Cruz is ready to take San Antonio by (culinary) storm with the jaw dropping, mouthwatering delights on his new menu, including his acclaimed Concha Burger (pictured above), which earned him high praise at the James Beard House dinner he participated in.
“The inspiration for the menu is about what’s popular right now – which are burgers and chicken sandwiches, but I want mine to stand out and be really delicious. To do that, for starters, we’re sous vide cooking our burger patties,” said Chef Cruz.
After the burger patties are sous vide at a low temp for 30 minutes, they’re finished off on the grill with a nice char, ensuring these burgers are as juicy and flavorful as any you’ll find in the Alamo City!
Chef Cruz’ house sauce, with just a hint of chipotle and strawberry, rounds out these signature sandwiches, making them simply unforgettable.
The menu, which can be found online at ghostkitchensa.com, also includes scrumptious, next level chicken sandwiches, such as the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich dripping with tangy buffalo sauce and piled with creamy blue cheese and the spicy (but not too spicy) Nashville Chicken Sandwich, as well as the finger-licking-good Black Garlic Blackened Chicken Wings that lend credence to the phrase, “no one can eat just one!”
“Even though I’ve grown up in the industry as more of a fine dining chef, I’ve been having a lot of fun making burgers. It’s a great challenge to take something everyone loves, and make it the best you possibly can,” said Chef Cruz.
San Antonians can order from the new menu online through established food delivery services, including Uber Eats, GrubHub, DoorDash and very soon from Postmates.
Branded Menu Options:
Ghost Kitchens SA will continue to make hot, delicious food to-go from popular branded menus, including Outlaw Burger, Miss Mazy’s Amazin’ Chicken, Firebelly Wings, Crave Burger, The Wing Dynasty and Wild Wild Wings.
