Itriya Cafe Opens At Diamond Jamboree
The long-awaited curiosity of a concept that merges Italian spaghetti with Korean ssam (loosely translated to "things wrapped in lettuce and sesame leaf") opened last week and from a quick perusal of the menu, the restaurant isn't kidding around: they are, indeed offering a menu of spaghetti (with traditional Italian flavors and ones that incorporates Korean black bean, Cajun and other variants) and a (thankfully) separate menu of ssam.
What is a Taconini? It is a "signature menu item that combines the flavors of a Taco and is grilled and layerd like a Panini. In the Taconini bread, it is layered with cheese, cucumber, Itriya Cafe slaw, red & yellow bell peppers and Taconini sauce."
