When you think of great Asian fusion food, you may not think of craft beer in the same breath, but at Morimoto Asia, the two pair up to really please the palate. Not only does Chef Morimoto have his own brews on the menu, he’s partnered with a number of local Florida craft brewers to provide some of their best flavors to enjoy.
If this sounds like a foodie paradise to you, you’ll want to mark July 29th on your calendar as Morimoto Asia will be hosting “Craft Beers & Bites Festival,” benefiting Children’s Home Society of Central Florida.
