With UFCW Local 1445, La Comunidad, Inc., Cambridge Community Foundation, Cambridge Mutual Aid, Chinese Progressive Association, VietAid, Boston Children’s Pediatrics, Friends of the Children Boston, Project RIGHT and Solidarity Supply Distro, we have provided 8000+ essential worker families in Somerville, Everett, Chelsea, East Boston, Chinatown, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, Quincy, Malden and Revere with 800,000+ lbs. (400+ tons!) of groceries, tailored to family size, dietary restrictions and culture. Want to get involved? Volunteer here. Donate here!
OFF THEIR PLATE , WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN
We are continuing to cook for those in need, including food insecure families in high covid, low income neighborhoods, with Off Their Plate, an initiative our Chef/Owner Tracy Chang launched with Harvard Medical student Natalie Guo in Boston. Chef Tracy built the restaurant partnership framework as a scalable model to be utilized across the country. She authored health and safety SOPs with the help of friends in hospitality, healthcare and safety, shared nationwide with World Central Kitchen, James Beard Foundation, Aspen Institute, and more. Our work with both OTP and PRU has garnered international recognition from The Basque Culinary World Prize, naming us top 10 finalists, alongside winner Chef Jose Andres and Star Chefs 2020 Rising Stars: Game Changer. Thank you for your continued support. For any questions or feedback, please email email@example.com.
Thank you Boston Globe for featuring our mutual aid work.
"What makes these visual acrobatics so delightful is that they're not just stunts. The food tastes very good. It is smartly composed. And it is original...They are true to the person who made them. In a world on remix, where information and influence are transmitted in the blink of an eye, this may be the only authenticity we have left."
AS SEEN ON…
Our menus have evolved during Covid-19 to include homey, comfort foods like Spicy Knife-Cut and Spicy Hand-Pulled Biang Biang Noodles. Boston Magazine featured us on the cover of the November 2020 issue. We also have your timeless PAGU favorites like Pork Belly Bao and Cedar Campfire Black Cod available as simple kits, ready for you to finish at home.
Indulge in our new cocktails, especially now that bar manager Andy has returned from New York. Try the Cafe Shio, our twist on the drink of the moment, the Espresso Martini, using miso brown butter brandy, pedro ximenez sherry, averna, Gracenote Coffee cold brew, and coffee liqueur. If you’re feeling more tropical this winter, try out Flying Tiger, combining passionfruit, Ming River Baijiu, rum, passionfruit, housemade sunflower seed orgeat, plum and lime. Of course we always have our mainstays like the Pica Pika and Lei It On Me.
If you’re looking for all the creativity and non of the liquor, enjoy our creative mocktails like the Bara No Bara—pomegranate, blood orange shrub, chocolate bitters, rose water, champagne acid—or the Shogun Spritz—lapsang and oolong teas, Sanzo yuzu ginger seltzer, malic acid—like an Arnold Palmer but better.
Tracy Chang’s fondest childhood memories are those from her grandmother’s Japanese restaurant in Cambridge. Chin-Fun Shiue immigrated to Boston in the 1980's and after having been a midwife her entire professional life in Taiwan, she decided in her late 60s, to open restaurants in Boston. She opened several, including the area’s premier Japanese restaurant in the 1990s, Tokyo Restaurant, where acclaimed sushi chefs like Toru Oga of Oga’s in Natick and Shinji Muraki of Toraya in Arlington, trained before opening their own establishments. At an early age, Tracy observed how her grandmother’s hard work and leadership created opportunities for other immigrants, who in turn helped build a hearth for the multicultural community with tasty food and gracious hospitality.
