Tiger Fork (a contemporary Hong Kong kitchen) has one of the best fried rice dishes I’ve had. The texture of the rice reminds me almost of sticky rice, but not too sticky. And, the flavor is explosive. Everything I ordered was delicious, but I can’t stop thinking about the fried rice. Truly a satisfying Friday “Treat Night.”First time caller and I’ll definitely be back.
I’m too far for delivery so I did a pick up. The crazy thing is the restaurant is located in DC in an alley, which is across the street from my very first N Street, NW apartment after graduating from Howard.
My “Friday Treats” were:
Combo Fried Rice (chinese sausage, prawns, egg, scallions, garlic, rice)
Pork Ribs (soy, ginger, happy lady spice) – Tender, juicy, finger licking good.
Smashed Cucumber Salad (garlic, chili, sesame) – This dish is not your normal your cucumber salad.
Crab Rangoon Nachos (lump crab meat, chili cream cheese, sweet and sour sauce, scallions, fried wonton chips)
Prior to Pop living with me, I practiced a special pleasure ritual that if I wasn’t out and about on a Friday night, it was my “treat night.” Meaning I‘d pick up or have something really satisfying delivered to indulge in the comfort of my home while exhaling from the work week.
Well, it took Pop no time to take great joy in “treat night.” Of course he didn’t shy away from throwing out his random food cravings. And, I did my best to balance and honor his requests as well as my out of the box palate. It was cute when I’d serve Pop and he’d excitedly sing 🎶Treeeeat!🎶 Followed by, “Can I have a drink, please?” 🥃 But, don’t let me skip “treat night” as he seemed to anticipate it more than me. Pop would say “No treat night?” At times I’d give him that side eye look, thinking he’s so spoiled. However, I enjoyed and was grateful for this special me time turning into our time. But, guess what? I get to continue spoiling me, especially during this healing grieving time. And, hopefully you’re taking time to love up on you in whatever way you desire.
Well treat night isn’t the same without Pop. But, now I get to enjoy it with pleasant thoughts of him. I can still hear Pop singing 🎶Treeeeat!🎶
While I miss the energy of restaurants and sliding up to a bar stool to chill, dine, and bartender watch, I love how during the pandemic restaurants have pivoted in ways that I still get to enjoy the dining out experience in a different yet still tasty way. I’m still having fun researching, exploring, and being introduced to some great spots.
Mmmmmm… Bon Appetit! Enjoy! RIP Pop! 💜🙏🏾💜Cheers! #BeDoLove #PopThoughts #FridayTreatNight #SelfCareMatters #FindYourZen #LivingOutLoud #BeDoLoveSAVOR #BonAppetit #Yummylicious #Yummyliciousness #Foodie #FoodieLife #FoodPorn #ExpandYourPalate #TasteDC #DCFoodie #TigerForkDC #OffTheBeatenPath #DMV
