Bon Me Appetit #7: Spicy Peanut Dressing

A question as old as time, asked by many, the answer sought after and never found...until now.

We've had endless requests for this secret recipe and we're finally giving in. Read on to find out how to make our Spicy Peanut Dressing at home.


Here's what you need:

Ingredients (yields ~2 cups of dressing):

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1-2 teaspoons cayenne, to taste

  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 4 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil

  • about 1 cup water


  1. In a bowl, whisk the peanut butter, soy sauce, and vinegar to form a smooth paste

  2. Add in the red pepper flakes, garlic, cayenne, sugar, and sesame oil. Whisk until fully incorporated into the dressing

  3. Lastly, whisk in water to thin out dressing to your desired consistency. Use less water for a thicker dressing and more for a thinner one.

  4. Enjoy!

Menu Makeover at Chestnut Hill Square

We've given our Chestnut Hill Square restaurant a makeover! Or more specifically, a menu makeover. Take a look below at our two new #exclusive dishes available in Chestnut Hill Square.

Baby Kale Salad with Tea Poached Chicken and Red Quinoa ($10)

Tea Poached Chicken? Yeah, you read that right. To make our new salad, we start by brewing strong Lapsang tea, a type of smoke-dried Chinese tea. We then poach (a fancy word for boil) chicken thighs in the tea, imbuing it with a unique smoky flavor. The chicken is chilled and tops a salad of tender baby kale mixed with red quinoa, tomatoes, red onions, and roasted almonds. A light lemon vinaigrette ties it all together. 

Seasonal Roasted Veggie Bowl ($8)

We're also introducing a Seasonal Vegetable Rice Bowl! Our kitchen is roasting up the best flavors of every season and combining them for a hearty bowl of fresh and healthy ingredients. We place the roasted veggies with cherry tomatoes and mesclun greens atop our brown rice, and season it all with Chinese Soy Bean Sauce.

For the winter months our Veggie Bowl will include roasted squash, mushroom, and cabbage. On the other hand, our summer bowl contained roasted eggplant, zucchini, and corn. 

Make sure to stop by our Chestnut Hill Square location and try out one of our new dishes. If you think your meal is #instaworthy make sure to tag us and let us know!

Happy Eating!
