In an article posted today, The Charlotte Observer shares with readers how one east Charlotte restaurant is getting ready to take Taste of the World participants on a culinary adventure. The story follows Chef Roberto Mendoza of The Chef Heaven’s Kitchen located at 6023 Albemarle Road.
Next week, his restaurant debuts in the annual Taste of the World restaurant showcase. The sold-out event on Oct. 1 will bring busloads of foodies to east Charlotte’s international restaurants, giving those eateries exposure that could lead to a business boost. …
Taste of the World typically draws diners from Charlotte and beyond. Last year’s event included foodies from 37 different ZIP codes, according to Therese Bohn, co-chair/neighborhood representative of showcase organizer Charlotte E.A.S.T., which stands for Eastland Area Strategies Team. “We want to make people aware so they come more regularly, which helps with the economic development of the restaurants,” she says.
Mendoza’s guests can expect two greeters at the door, live music inside, and buffet-style choices including South American cerviche, pupusas and tamales from Central America, Molcajete stew from Mexico, pastas from Italy and grilled salmon representing American cuisine.
