ou usually don’t hear calls of “Yes, chef” or “Coming up, chef” when waiting for dinner to-go, but inside Kounter Kulture, the new carryout eatery in South City’s Lindenwood Park neighborhood, it sounds like you’ve stepped into a fine-dining kitchen. I made this mental note while standing around the storefront operation, snacking on an amusebouche of creamy grits cooked in coconut milk topped with a vinaigrette, a few peanuts and pleasantly hot diced Fresno chiles. Which led to my second observation: You usually don’t expect an amuse-bouche while cooling your heels for a meal to be eaten at home.
