Olio Meal #2: Blurred Lines
With Tamra Teahouse
Sunday, October 7
Our second OLIO MEAL is happening on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7, 6PM, at TAMRA TEAHOUSE: a neighborhood eatery sandwiched between Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway, at the end of the 4 train. It’s on a quiet residential strip; their nearest competitor is the Alwahid Gold Star Deli on Schenectady.
CHEF YUNHA MOH’S kitchen experience is diverse. He’s cooked at places like Momofuku Milk Bar, Pok Pok, Llama Inn, The Lucky Bee, and Saltie, before starting his own spot—with an OPEN KITCHEN. (And an open mind.)
He calls THE MENU “Asian Fusion.” Chinese ribs, vegan “soul mac,” West African curry (“every culture has a curry!”), and Thai green papaya salad. But really, admits it’s a bit of everything.
Yunha thinks BLURRED LINES, geographically, are producing a new-age global cuisine. It’s a topic that runs deep, and rouses mixed feelings, which we’ll all talk about over tostones, handfuls of sticky rice, and pumpkin pie.
