MITD EATS: TIGER FORK

Walking through the dark and quiet Blagden Alley in D.C’s Shaw neighborhood, suspense and excitement building, I was in search of a red light. “You’ll know when you see it.” About two turns into the alley from the bustling 7th St., there it was - the alluring red light burning bright and situated up top a mystifying black door, alongside a black-framed geometric window.

Stepping out of the dull D.C. outdoors and into an electric feel of what I’d imagine to be a piece of Hong Kong’s colorful world, here I was – within a hidden pastel-neon gem of pulsating energy. Upon entering, there is a fast-paced octagon-shaped 21-seat bar, with curiously entertained patrons crowded around, waiting to get their hands on perhaps, one of the renowned TCM cocktails.

Tiger Fork’s TCM cocktails, designed by Director Ian Fletcher, are based on holistic recipes that are specially crafted with infused Traditional Chinese Medicine. So what do you get with a Peruvian Chef in a Chinese Kitchen and an 8 O’clock Light Show?

-  A cure for fatigue and anxiety, apparently.  

One – Two of these TCM cocktails (as they warn should be the limit) will have you feeling all kinds of cured and ready for some Hong Kong-style cuisine.

A few steps beyond the bar, through a dividing beaded veil, is the dining room where dozens of spherical lamps hang from the ceiling, illuminating an intimate setting. With a long communal table down the center of the room and smaller tables off to the side, the space is enveloped within walls of intricately detailed murals, one of which depicts an iconic two dragons in heaven. The menu is a short one page, however it is flavor-packed with a variety of explosive, mouth-watering options for everyone. Thanks to Executive Chef Irvin Van Oordt, who sought to create a menu combining Hong-Kong cool with flavor-packed global influence in Hong Kong classics, dim sum, Chinese BBQ, fresh tofu and chili crab, you’re sure to come hungry and leave in good spirits.

Note that Tiger Fork has a no-reservations policy for parties under 6, so dare to brave the spontaneity of it all, where you can either luck out and be seated immediately, or run into a line where the wait could be up to 2 hours, at times. But, of course, nothing less is expected of this place, as a growing number of people are eager to get a taste of Hong Kong’s gritty, badass culinary culture, Tiger Fork style.
