Tiger Mama


A couple Fridays ago after the usual post work drinks and debating where to have dinner, I remembered that Tiffani Faison recently opened Tiger Mama. We arrived to a two hour wait for a table but lucky us, snagged seats at the crowded bar where service was convivial and on point. 

Our cities beloved Top Chef Alum has done it again. Tiger Mama is a GEM. Tiffani's playful take on Southeast Asian food is terrific. Dishes are spicy, crispy, bold, adventurous and inspired. The space transports you - decor is funky and exotic, it gives a vibe in line with the food. 

After some bracingly good cocktails that included an Indo Fizz ($11) old monk 7 year, tumeric-coconut milk, lime, ginger honey syrup, whole egg and the Flushing/Main St ($13) white oak, dolin blanc, chartreuse, cacao, angostura - I made friends with their disco-ball elephant hostess

We ate Crispy Chili Potatoes ($6) with a sneaky spicy mayo, Hamachi Crudo ($15) with crispy dosa, viet herbs and a sesame mushroom aioli, and a Crispy Green Papaya Salad ($7) with mint and tomato chili vinaigrette. I was highly impressed with all three! We were planning to order more food but these generous portions filled us right up. I can't wait to visit again.

    The meaning of this is that you literally get rid of fat by consuming Coconut Fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
