Billy Dec Shaking Beef Recipe

“Shaking Beef” is a recipe that features wok-seared beef filet, greens and a lime-pepper dipping sauce.

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage (AAPI) month. In addition to the Shaking Beef, Sunda New Asian restaurant is featuring several special recipes in honor of AAPI Heritage Month:

  • boo-dah’s style grilled ahi tuna and pork  – chili vinegar, mango, sweet onions
  • golden child sushi – escolar, mango, avocado, tempura crumbs, mango crème 
  • malay style chilean seabass – coriander, lemongrass, miso, chilis, curried cauliflower puree 

Mother’s Day Brunch at Sunda

While I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make Shaking Beef, it’s even better when you eat it in person. Speaking of going to Sunda, I highly recommend you check out their Sunday Brunch. They even have an all-you-can-eat buffet for Mother’s Day.

Blueprint Underground Cocktail Club

Billy also surprised us with news that he’ll be opening the Blueprint Underground Cocktail Club in Printer’s Alley later this year.

His newest concept touts local creatives and global talent, celebrating artistry, innovation, and next-generation nightlife culture and entertainment.
