The new eatery is from the team behind Tiger Fork in D.C. and opened yesterday (Tuesday) in the mall, according to a press release.
“Hei Hei Tiger (pronounced ‘hey hey tiger’) means ‘Happy Happy Tiger’ in Chinese,” according to the press release. “The double happiness characters are significant in Chinese culture, symbolizing a union and joy.”
The restaurant is serving up Chinese barbecue, Hong Kong-style noodle bowls, soft serve and will soon offer boba milk tea, the press release said. The octagon-shaped bar offers “Traditional Chinese Medicine” cocktails, teas, tonics, sake, beer, wine and more.
More from the press release:
The culinary program is led by co-owner Will Fung, who has been part of Tiger Fork’s operating team since day one, in collaboration with the group’s corporate chef/co-owner Nathan Beauchamp and co-owner Greg Algie.
A Hong Kong native, Fung has more than 20 years of industry experience, both back-of-house as a former sushi chef at Sushiko and founder of the Dirty South Deli food truck, and front-of-house as former general manager at Ted’s Bulletin and Matchbox. Most recently, Fung spent his entire 2018 in Kyoto, cooking and training in 3-Michelin star Kaiseki restaurants Kikunoi and Takesh igero under the guidance of chef Yoshihiro Murata.
Inspired by the styles of Hong Kong dining, Fung draws on his childhood and familial cooking heritage, plus the techniques learned from his Japanese training, such as the fine art of dashi and intricate broths and sauces, and modernizing the recipes for today at Hei Hei Tiger…
A private dining room will follow, eventually serving dim sum brunches and hosting private events.
“Before we opened Tiger Fork, we always had this idea to open a hybrid service, casual-style concept offering Chinese BBQ and Hong Kong noodle soups,” Algie said in the press release. “After seeing the success and positive response to Tiger Fork, and with Will at the helm, we’re excited to make our first expansion outside of D.C.”
The restaurant is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon-6 p.m. on Sundays.
