Locally-raised heritage breed chicken covered in Jamaican spices and placed into a Chinese bao bun? Absolutely. Our menu is carefully crafted with amazing foods and flavors from all over the world. Adventure never tasted so good.

 
 

See that guy over there eating a Bao Bun? Yep, the guy in the flannel shirt. He raised the chicken you are about to order. Not only do we know our farmers, but we serve them, just in the same way they serve us. (You can thank him later.)

 

 
 

We might not have any control over what happens in this crazy world, but do we have a say in how we feel about things. We choose to put out Good Vibes, because why not? Take some, leave some—there’s enough to go around.

 
 

With a firm commitment to freshness and quality, we procure sustainably raised, antibiotic-free proteins and produce, whenever possible.

 

 

 

 

I wrote our business plan on a beach in Goa and then refined it in Bhutan, Vietnam and Thailand.
