The company offers its ‘No Menu’ concept, providing food lovers with an original culinary experience to celebrate food culture from across the globe. The idea is to organize a series of pop-up events, starting with unique and engaging brunches as soon as it’s safe to do so in Los Angeles.
Pop-Ups have become an increasingly common fixture within the catering world since 2007. Ludo Lefebvre popularized the temporary restaurant idea with his LudoBites venture in which eateries would appear in various unexpected locations across Los Angeles before disappearing completely. The transient nature of the experience gives these events a special atmosphere, turning predictable traditions into unique and unrepeatable cultural happenings.
With this innovative ‘No Menu’ concept by Surprise Me Kitchen, customers are able to submit their dietary requirements via the company’s website 24 hours prior to an event. Surprise Me Kitchen’s experienced chefs specialize in creating gourmet-style dishes that cater to customers with food allergies without compromising on the variety and quality of the cuisine on offer.
Surprise Me Kitchen advocates for the freedom of their chefs. A lack of set menus enables greater creativity in the kitchen, as well reducing food waste and promoting sustainability. The rigidity of options from traditional menu-led establishments also limits customer choice when many would prefer to experience new flavors and ideas from the minds of the city’s emerging culinary talent.
The company’s mission is to disrupt the hospitality industry, disregarding convention and traditions which limit the variety and depth of consumer experience. Surprise Me Kitchen’s concept is built around engagement and entertainment, bringing a playful aspect to eating out in the post-covid era.
About Surprise Me Kitchen
The company was founded by L. Christian Amougou, a hospitality professional with over 20 years of experience working in prestigious hotels and restaurants. The SMK ‘No Menu’ concept was first launched in Los Angeles in 2020 and is the only one of its kind across the city of Los Angeles.
A spokesperson says, “Many things we knew as normal will never be so again. The restaurant industry, for one, was due for reinvention anyway. Surprise Me Kitchen as a company is positioning itself as a leading pioneer in that endeavor.”
Surprise Me Kitchen continues to make original culinary experiences accessible for food fans across Los Angeles from the intersection of tech, dining, and events in a fun, engaging package.
