Austin Texas pop up restaurants are starting to flower. Ronin Cooking’s chef Brian Light, a former understudy to Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, is taking over the kitchen at Tamale House East this Saturday March 23rd 2013 for a one night only food party.
Theme is Foods of Southeast Asia.
Information is scant but we did manage to locate the menu which reads like an umami-based assault on the senses. The concern’s website and Facebook uses the ancient method of jpeg display so we’ll mention the highlights with Tamarind crab, Vietnamese crepes and Avocado ice cream being the most appealing.
Reserve a seat as the last few pop ups at Tamale House East have been jammed, wall to wall with late comers routinely being left to scrap, Lord of the Flies-style for stray tamales and the occasional totopo vacuumed up out of a dusty corner.
