Menu ReVamp: Masa 14

Lo Mein
Masa 14 has a new chef and a new menu. Eric McKamey recently was appointed as the chef de cuisine of the restaurant.  Prior to joining Masa 14, McKamey held the position as the executive chef of The Curious Grape in Shirlington.  

Both of my favorite new dishes were made with hanger steak. I loved the lo mein noodles with hanger steak, oyster sauce, rapini, jicama, black mushroom, and chipotle.  
The Korean grilled Hanger steak is one of the most tender hanger steaks I've ever tasted. The dish was served on a bed of bok choy kimchee and topped with black sesame, bean sprouts, and a guajillo red miso.  
The menu still has some of the signature dishes including the crunchy shrimp with chipotle aioli, teriyaki, toasted sesame, and masago.  
Pork Carnitas Flatbread
The menu features an assortment of flatbreads wok dishes, grilled treats, dim sum, veggies, temaki and ceviches.  The menu changes quarterly to incorporate seasonal ingredients from local farmers.  
The Toasted Almond Flan is a yummy sweet ending!  I like the crunch of the almond with the creaminess of the custard.
For after dinner fun, don't forget that Masa 14 has a great roof area upstairs complete with cocktails and music.  Cheers!
