From a press release:

“Short Eats announces the launch of its pop-up breakfast café at Ten Tigers Parlour, located at 3813 Georgia Ave NW. The location is one block from the Petworth-Georgia Avenue Metro Station.

Starting Monday, May 8th and on weekdays 7:00-10:00AM, Short Eats is offering a breakfast version of its street food roti pockets in vegetarian and meat options with poached eggs. Local partner Compass Coffee will also be sold. Both carry-out and in-house eating are welcome.

“Short eats are an everyday staple in Sri Lanka. I’m excited to introduce DC communities to our culture’s food. My family has been cooking rotis, curries and diverse Sri Lankan dishes using our home-grown spices from the island for years,” stated Yohan Ferdinando, Co-Founder of Short Eats and former Operations Manager of food delivery startups Postmates and Favor.

Union Kitchen member Short Eats further plans to launch a full catering menu at the Petworth Community Farmers Market starting May 13 through November. Roti pockets and curries will be sold every Saturday 9:00AM-1:00PM at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Upshur Street.

On Saturday May 6, Short Eats will also be at the Funk Parade offering Sri Lankan native-spice curries bowls and its signature pol sambol near Howard Theater throughout the day starting at 12p/noon.”

    Uh oh. This is what happens at a Hilton brothers restaurant when it’s starting to fail.

      Nobody I know goes there anymore after the changed from Chez Billy. I hope they are doing well, but in my personal opinion, they ruined the (formerly) best place to eat in Petworth. Granted, there are a TON of new, great options, but I’m unclear why they made the change — especially covering over the amazing vaulted ceiling with balconies in the bar area.

      Easy now, this is an early morning pop-up to help give a local small business an opportunity. Not everything is so dramatic.

    My family is so excited about this pop-up! We live in Petworth and have visited Sri Lanka twice and loved it. Amazing food, lots of natural beauty and lovely people. We are ready for roti! Any chance for string hoppers? Yum!

      Hey there is another SL place Banana Leaf on Connecticut Ave which has stringhoppers, hoppers etc.
