Colorado Restaurant Offers Pot and Food Pairing Menu
When you to a nice restaurant you often hear about which wines would pair nicely with each dinner item. Lately the same thing has been done with some beer and food. This may be a first though. A sushi restaurant in Colorado is offering tips on what weed pairs well with what food. According to TIME the restaurant in question has jumped on board the weed bandwagon before.
When you go to a gourmet restaurant, you might find yourself asking the sommelier to recommend a fine wine to complement your meal. But now, as more states begin to legalize recreational marijuana use, diners will soon be asking another question: What fine weed will enhance my dining experience?
Patrons of Colorado’s Hapa Sushi have already begun asking this important question thanks to the restaurant’s new pot-and-dinner pairing menu. Back in 2009, the restaurant launched a print campaign that encouraged smokers to come eat sushi to satisfy their munchies. And now the chain, with locations in Boulder and Denver, is back on the pro-weed scene, urging locals to toke up and eat up — at the same time.
Here are some of the suggested dinner-and-dope combinations:
- Pakalolo Shrimp with Pakistani Kush
- Honey Miso Salmon with Sour OG
- Katsu Curry with Blue Dream
Oh and don’t worry — the dining room is “ergonomically designed to reduce paranoia” so you can just sit back, take a toke, and then probably start giggling about how weird it is that something that used to swim in the ocean is now inside you.
It might be just me but getting high and eating sushi just doesn’t seem like it goes together.
