Somebody hold us. It’s happening. It’s really, truly happening.
Let’s be honest. Yum Cha is the foundation of pretty much all amazing food comas ever so it should come as no shock that we’ve already popped on our loosest-fitting clothing ever and cancelled all other plans (naturally).
Apart from serving up the best damn burnt-butter hummus ever, the Lebanese institution known as Thievery is doing your hungry tums a solid and serving up one heck of a feast for the whole of August (yes, the legends are transforming their menu into a new and epic yum cha feed). Anddd what’s packin’ on the menu you ask?
Think lamb kafta (can confirm you won’t want to share), baba ganoush dumplings, spiced lamb cutlets— and to top it all off, tea cocktails will make a stellar appearance. Your boozy infusions will look something like hot buttered chai with rum and a Turkish sour cherry iced tea with rye. All we can really say is: bring it on. And just so you know, it's kind of a big deal so get in early and book here.
