From a press release:
“Local food companies, Cassava Boba and Awkpie, are teaming up to bring the District a new Tea and Pie Shop concept. The temporary restaurant will set up shop in Iron Horse Tap Room in Chinatown and will operate from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday-Friday, excluding Wednesdays. The pop-up is set to open on January 22 and run until February 16.
Cassava Boba will be serving up five different flavors of bubble tea including their fan favorite “Milk Tea” for five dollars a drink and will introduce their seasonal “Chocolate Chai” priced at six dollars. Awkpie will be dishing out sweet and savory hand-pies priced at seven dollars. Among them are “The Babe,” a pulled pork pie with goat cheese, pickled ginger and blackberry jam, and “The Gumbo,” filled with chicken and sausage gumbo and rice pudding. Visitors can also expect to be able to purchase a Tea and Pie Combo for ten dollars; perfect for an on-the-go breakfast, light lunch or afternoon treat.
Cassava Boba is a District based company dedicated to taking a fresher approach to bubble tea. All beverages are created with high-quality, organic, and locally sourced ingredients, and then combined with a mixture of tapioca pearls and local honey to add a sweet, filling texture, transforming these humble drinks into delightful treats.
Awkpie celebrates awkward life moments with unique ingredient pairings, wrapped inside a pastry crust that fits in the palm of your hand. All pies are handmade and branded with a timeline of awkward scenarios throughout life…like that blog you started in high school and can’t seem to escape or that time your parents sat you down for “the talk.” Each pie offers an unexpected flavor journey, like the pecan pie with smoked paprika, cayenne and whiskey.”
