EKACHAI Launch Interactive Wall

Ekachai Interactive Wall

Our client Ekachai is completely refurbishing the interior of their Wandsworth restaurant that is located on the upper concourse of Wandsworth’s Southside Shopping Centre. Narrative, the design team, are making huge changes such as covering the roof in bamboo and hanging almost fifty light fixtures imported from Indonesia.

As well as a new look there will also be a new menu with additions such as ever popular Cantonese Char Sui Bao, Thai chicken classic Kai Krapow and Roti Canai fried Malaysian pancake. The re-launch is planned for early July however between now and then they have to fully cover the exterior in large dull hoarding.

To reimagine this temporary drawback we commissioned The Outside Collective to create an interactive mural running along the entire length of the 13m hoarding. Ekachai also provided the collateral of 500 meals for us to giveaway.

Our focus for the interactive wall was to reflect the profile of Ekachai; a Southeast Asian restaurant specialising in authentic Cantonese, Thai and Malay street food served in an informal, honest and fun environment. The cuisines’ styles were illustrated by a scene from each area in geographical order moving from morning until night. We then made these scenes interactive to promote engagement and social media promotion of the re-launch. The Hong Kong scene features über-sized chopsticks, Thailand conical hats and Malaysia a becak bicycle. Instructions on how to use the wall are positioned at the top of the mural, to the side and also on an A board.

Yesterday Fourteen Ten spent time at Southside wearing Ekachai uniforms and encouraging passers-by to pose with the items on the wall. Some interacted, some didn’t but the first thing people did when walking past was to look at the wall, stop and smile many enquiring about the re-launch of the restaurant. We also spoke to lots of customers who were disappointed (and some angry!) to find their local restaurant was temporarily closed which was an interesting observation on numbers of regular diners.

Follow the entries using the hashtag #Ekachai.

WANT TO ENTER?

To win one of 500 free main-meals passers-by can select between Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia pose with the chopsticks, hats or bicycle and upload a photograph on either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram including the hashtag #Ekachai.

Rossopomodoro Launches The Pastiera

Pastiera

“A cake as delicious as the voice of a siren”

Authentic Neapolitan restaurant Rossopomodoro is bringing Naples to London this April with Pastiera; the traditional Neapolitan cake. Pastiera is a wheat cake made with ricotta cheese and candied oranges prepared by families throughout the Neapolitan region. There are several stories around the origins as far back as Constatine the Emperor however our favourite is the ancient legend of the siren Partenope.

The Legend of Pastiera:

Partenope would rise from the water of the Gulf of Naples every Spring singing enchanting songs and delighting people with her voice. Apparently one year the people of Naples fell so in love with her songs that they decided to offer her the most precious products of their land. Seven of the most beautiful girls of the area gave the beautiful siren flour, ricotta, eggs, wheat, orange blossom water and spices, including cinnamon and sugar. Partenope, thrilled with her gifts, decided to return to her home under the sea and offer her gifts to the Gods. To honour her beauty the Gods mixed the ingredients together creating a cake as delicious as the voice of the siren; The Neopolitan Pastiera.*

Availability:

The Neapolitan Pastiera, priced £5.95 per portion, will be available in Rossopomodoro restaurants in Camden, Chelsea, Covent Garden, Hoxton, Oxford Street, Swiss Cottage and Wandsworth from Easter weekend and will remain on the menu until the end of April.

Mario Romano, Marketing Manager:

“Rossopomodoro offers the most authentic Neapolitan pizza experience outside Napoli and we are proud to introduce this seasonal traditional Neapolitan dessert. Every household in Naples either bakes or buys a Pastiera to celebrate Easter and we want our diners to experience this taste of Naples in our restaurants from now until the end of April. Neapolitans love the taste of Pastiera and we hope our diners also enjoy this taste of our tradition.”

Pastiera Fact:

The Neopolitan pastier was the only thing that could cheer up Queen Maria Teresa of Hapsburg who was known as the “queen who never smiles”. Her husband, Ferdinand II of Bourbon the King of the two Sicilies, was able to convince her to taste the slice of pastier, and the Queen smiled in satisfaction.*

Shikumen Launch Party

Shikumen Launch Invite

Shikumen Restaurants is a new affordable Chinese fine-dining option for London with a large flagship restaurant located in The Dorsett Hotel on Shepherd’s Bush Green and a second smaller location in Ealing’s Hotel Xanadu.

Shikumen Restaurants hosted a Launch Party held on Chinese New Year (19th February) welcoming local business owners, loyal customers, journalists, family and friends to their Shepherd’s Bush restaurant.

Fourteen Ten assisted by inviting the media and local business owners to the party which we are pleased to say was a full house. The premise of Chinese New Year is to spend time with your family and friends, feast on symbolic food and take part in traditional activities to bring luck, prosperity and happiness. Our party followed this theme along with some amazing food sculptures, live pancake making, prizes to encourage social media sharing as well as beautiful personalised tea gifts and red envelopes to take home.

Since opening Shikumen has received encouraging reviews online such as “(I) have been here three times now, what an amazing restaurant!…The duck is to die for, honestly the best Chinese in London”, “This is proper food, beautifully cooked, elegantly presented” and “If there is a better Chinese restaurant in this part of west London, I have yet to find it”.

Shikumen is so called after the traditional Shanghai stone house architecture of the 1940s that blended east and west. The restaurant continues this tradition to blend the two cultures of east and west by presenting traditional dishes in an refined western way. Ingredients are carefully sourced to bring diners produce of the highest quality served for exceptional value for money and you will see this reflected in the pricing of signature dishes such as Peking Duck carved at the table and served in two servings (whole £48.50 half £26.50), Shanghai Xiao Long Bao (£3.50), Fried Dough Stick Cheung Fun (£4.20) and Turnip Puff Pastry (£3.80).

Benihana 50th Anniversary Wagyu Beef Menu

Wagyu Beef

Benihana opened their first restaurant 50 years ago and to commemorate the occasion by offering a promotional menu that celebrates both the lifting of the import ban on Japanese Wagyu and Benihana’s unique heritage.

The 50th Anniversary Wagyu menu begins with the traditional starters of Onion Soup and Salad followed by Sushi, Tempura and the classic Prawn Appetiser, Courgettes, Onion Volcano and Hibachi Rice.

Diners are then served Wagyu known around the word for its sweet aroma and rich flavour. The Benihana style of cooking suits Wagyu beef very well as the marbling benefits from swift cooking at a high heat and the sweet fragrance given off when cooking (due to increased amino acids) can be appreciated by the diners seated around a Teppan.

The Wagyu can be compared with a dish of the Scottish Fillet or, at the diners preference, the Black Cod with Miso.

This ten-course meal is finished with an ice-cream dessert.

The price of the Benihana 50th Anniversary Wagyu menu is only £50 per person for a limited time to allow diners to experience Wagyu at an affordable price – before returning to the rrp of around £100 for the Wagyu alone.
