Don’t Miss These Late Night Munchies

Union Kitchen & Tap’s locations in Encinitas and in the Gaslamp have both launched a new late-night munchies menu, specially suited for those post-dinner hunger pains.

Head to the Encinitas location for laidback beach vibes and late-night delicacies every night from 10 p.m. to close. Dig into uniquely honed Crawfish Popcorn, made with a cornmeal crust, crispy kale pops and lemon Cajun aioli, or bring on the late-night wings with Union’s Dry Rubbed Wings, tossed in your choice of House Bourbon Peach BBQ or Spicy Buffalo Sauce, and served with Celery House Ranch. Match these bite with a sip of something sweet and try their Agatha cocktail, crafted from Belvedere, watermelon, cilantro and lime, or spice it up with the Eli Cash, mixed from Pasilla-Infused Kimo Sabe, Verdita and Ancho Reyes Verde.

If the bustling Gaslamp District is more your style, head Downtown on Friday or Saturday from 11 p.m. to midnight to indulge in a variety of late-night bites, including their signature Poutine, crafted from crispy Kennebec potatoes, maple sausage southern gravy, white cheddar curds and bacon lardons, or if something on the lighter side suits your needs, try your hand at an order of Local Greens, prepared with a crispy poached egg, goat cheese, candied pecans, organic baby greens, cucumbers and tomatoes, all tossed in honey red wine vinaigrette. Pair your chosen late-night delight with one of their delectable night caps, including options like Son of a Peach, concocted from Belvedere Peach Nectar, apricot preserves, lemon, simple syrup and peach bitters, or The Georgia Jule, shaken with Bulleit Bourbon, raspberry, peach, mint, agave and lime.
