Taiwan’s National Dish Pops Up at Baology


Baology, the Taiwanese street food spot specializing in bao buns, potstickers, and the overstuffed “burritos” known as ruen bing, has quickly become one of our favorite lunch spots here at Foobooz HQ since opening last month. How could they not be when they serve up a delicious, sustainably sourced, lightning-fast lunch for around $10 only a block from our office?

Now that they’ve got the midday meal routine down, owners Judy Ni and Andy Tessier have extended their hours to 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on weekdays. And on Saturday, August 5th, they’re hosting a one-night dinnertime pop-up featuring Taiwan’s national dish: beef noodle soup.

Vetri Hosts Exclusive One-Night Pop-Up Featuring Nashville’s Hottest Chef

The Catbird Seat/Facebook

The Catbird Seat is one of Nashville’s most highly lauded restaurant experiences: diners sit at a U-shaped bar and watch chef Ryan Poli and his team turn out their meal, serving bites and chatting about ingredients during service. We have our own version of that at Serpico, but, obviously, Peter Serpico’s style of cooking is vastly different from Poli’s. So for the real Catbird Seat experience, you’ll have to spend the time and money to travel all the way to Tennessee.

Or you can just pop over to Vetri’s private dining room on May 8th.

Ramen Pop-Up at Taqueria Feliz

A Mexican bao bun? It's happening this week in Manayunk.

A Mexican bao bun? It’s happening this week in Manayunk.

Have you ever felt like your burrito needed more noodles? Or your ramen needed more tortilla chips? Neither have we, nonetheless we’re intrigued by the pop-up Taqueria Feliz has planned. The Manayunk Mexican restaurant is hosting a ramen pop-up. Mexican-Asian fusion might sound weird but we’re willing to give dishes like Ramen Poblano a try.

And the Main Street bar will also be well stocked with Sapporo Pilsner and Black Raspberry “Sake-Ritas.”

Check out the rest of the menu.

And Like That, They Were Gone: Abe Met Diz Was a Hit

When Abe Met Diz Was a Big Hit | Photo via Cook N Solo

On Saturday night, Abe met Diz and 15 minutes later it was over. The pastrami pita pop-up at Mike Solomonov’s Dizengoff saw 50-sandwiches walk out the door starting at 10 p.m. By 10:15 the final sandwich had been snapped up.

But have no fear, the pop-up returns the next three Saturday nights (September, 17, September, 24 and October, 1) for pastrami tucked into a caraway rye pita and topped with beet-pickled turnips, dill tehina, sumac slaw and fried onions. Also back is the frozen riesling – which was also a big success. Dizengoff will have more frozen riesling on hand as many showed up just for the icy wine.

But there is one big change. The pop-up now will begin at 8 p.m. now, with doors opening at Dizengoff at 7:30 p.m.

The sandwiches are $12 each and we suggest getting there early.

Before the Edward T. Bok Technical School closed two years ago, the school had an culinary training cafe tucked inside the building, cleverly named Le Bok Fin. Since the school’s closed, the building has sat in disuse, and the cafe along with it. Thankfully, things have changed.
