“This Friday Republic Kolache will be releasing the latest in our guest chef series.. the Barbacoa Kolache. This is a collaboration with Chef Quinten Frye who in addition to his James Beard nod while running the high-end SALT in Honolulu, is also a master of cooking delicious, simple, populist Tex-Mex food
It consists of the traditional beef cheek, smoked and beer braised until it reaches a luscious, melt-in-your-mouth level of tenderness, then we pair it with pickled red onion and a cilantro lime chimichurri — basically a kolache take on the flavors you’d find in a northern Mexico or south Texas barbacoa taco.
We’re anticipating King Cake Kolache levels of excitement around this one, so we’re opening up pre-ordering now so folks can lock in their order and skip the lines. We’ll be serving the barbacoa for a limited run, weekends at our ‘Republic Kolache @ Hill Country’ popup (Fri-Sun, 8-11a)– kicking off this Fri.”
