KINGS Doral Unveils New Menu

KINGS Dining & Entertainment Doral, South Florida’s favorite expansive dining, cocktail, and entertainment venue, is pleased to introduce a fully revamped menu available daily for lunch and dinner. Handcrafted to compliment the entertainment experience, diners will enjoy over 10 brand new items and sections brought to life by ‘best-in-industry’ service. Following the meal, guests are entertained with 14 ten-pin bowling lanes, 4 private bowling lanes, a full-service upscale lounge named ‘The Rum Room’, private dining and karaoke space in ‘The Flamingo Room’, and much more.

Highlights from the new menu include (but not limited to):

Fondue – KINGS encourages shareable dining experiences, so this item was more than fitting! Built for two to six guests, a star item from the fondue plates include the Vegetarian Tomato Bisque with focaccia, fried mac & cheese, grilled cheese and handmade mozzarella sticks.

Redefined Snacks – For those that don’t want to commit to a full entree, the redefined snacks section is a prime choice. Items include Edamame, house-smoked and seared Crispy Pork Belly BLT served with a honey mustard sauce drizzle and seasoned fried tomatoes and the Impossible Cheeseburger Empanadas filled with plant-based “meat”, cheeses and pickles nestled within a flaky empanada dough.

Shareable Items – Easily split amongst your party, shared additions include BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders on mini potato rolls with fried onions, pickles, house-made pulled pork and barbecue sauce, Philly Tuna Bites with Ahi tuna, wonton crackers and a ginger soy marinade and Bruschetta with house-made focaccia bread and seasoned plum tomatoes.
