Mama Fu’s Asian House, the Austin-based restaurant concept specializing in fresh and innovative Asian cuisine, is pleased to announce that its new Black Market Menu will be available April 2, 2015, at select locations.
Exclusive to members of the Mama Fu’s loyalty program, the Funatics Club, the secret menu features innovative Asian cuisine developed by Mama Fu’s world-class chefs, selected through an internal culinary challenge. Chefs throughout the Mama Fu’s system compete to showcase their culinary skills and innovation inspired by travels through Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, and Thailand.
“This season’s Black Market Menu continues Mama Fu’s tradition of serving innovative, mouth-watering dishes. It includes fresh, healthy items that are perfect for the summer months,” said Randy Murphy, CEO of Mama Fu’s. “This year, the innovation extends to our gluten-free offerings, which are very popular with our customers and a significant part of our business. To thank our gluten-free clientelle, we are launching our first gluten-free dessert on this season’s Black Market Menu, Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango.”
