Doma Kitchen to Offer New Internationally Inspired Cuisine

The Marina del Rey Restaurant is expanding its Menu to Offer Breakfast Items


Deviled Eggs from Doma Kitchen.

Doma Kitchen, the internationally inspired restaurant known for its home-cooked fare, recently relocated to Marina del Rey after owner Angie Corrente found she could no longer keep up with the high demand at her previous Manhattan Beach location.

The restaurant has continued to grow, with plans to offer breakfast items starting in June, along with specialized menus and events for upcoming holidays. The expanded offerings are no surprise; Doma boasts near-perfect online ratings from its customers, including on Facebook, OpenTable, and Yelp. 

This month, Chef Kristina Miksyte, who hails from Lithuania, is cooking up plov (or pilaf) burritos, a Russian comfort food with a California twist.

Traditionally, the dish is prepared with lamb, browned in lamb fat, and stewed with fried onions, carrots, and garlic. Chef Miksyte's version is spiced with whole black cumin, barberries, coriander, marigold, and pepper. Garlic and crispy garbanzo beans are also buried into a flour tortilla and are mixed with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and house guacamole. Patrons are able to choose from three options, including lamb, chicken, or falafel. As with most items at Doma, the falafel is handmade and stands out with its bright green color due to the addition of fresh cilantro.

In addition to the plov burrito, Doma is offering deep-fried deviled eggs topped with crispy bacon and red caviar. For the main course, Chef Miksyte has dreamed up a 12-ounce pork chop, breaded with panko crumbs, and topped with a refreshing Greek salad. The star of the specials is the house-made tiramisu, which consists of ladyfingers dipped in espresso and topped with a creamy mascarpone cheese mixture and a heavy dusting of cocoa powder.

Falafel the authentic way

Doma's desserts are exceptional on a menu already laden with standout dishes. 

Beginning in June, Doma's customers will be able to stop by for breakfast starting at 8 am. The restaurant will offer espresso drinks and homemade pastries, which will be available to go.

For Father's Day, owner Corrente plans to bring in a Russian band for a night of music and dancing, the latest in a series of special events including Latin Jazz Night in March and a Mother's Day celebration earlier this month.

The events and varied menu items are sure to transport Doma's customers on a culinary journey of homemade cuisines, just as Corrente intends.

Doma Kitchen, 4325 Glencoe Avenue #8, Marina del Rey CA, 90292
