From a press release:

Dorjee Momo is creating a more permanent home for Tibetan fare in DC with the opening of its residency in Bullfrog Bagels Eastern Market beginning January 27. This follows six months of private home dinners, events like Emporiyum and Illuminasia Festival, pop-ups at Thip Khao and Sally’s Middle Name, and lunch service at Dupont Circle’s Shop Made In DC.

“I am so excited to share the foods that I learned to make as a child in Tibet, and to play with the flavors and ingredients from places I have traveled to,” says Chef Dorjee Tsering. “When I cook with my team here, it gives me the feeling that I’m back with my family.”

A former Buddhist monk and Tibetan refugee, Dorjee has lived in Tibet, China, Nepal, and India. He spent years cooking across those countries and creating his own memories of flavors that are so often nostalgic for many. A few years after arriving in DC, he started Dorjee Momo out of Union Kitchen with his wife and business partner Amberjade Tsering. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Welcome to Wine & Butter, Capitol Hill’s newest cafe and market!

You might know our adorable corner spot at 11th and East Capitol Street SE from its days as P&C Market. We’ve made a handful of changes — the biggest being the addition of an espresso machine so we can offer coffee drinks — but we’ve tried hard to keep the soul of the specialty neighborhood store our predecessors worked so hard to create.

Our family has lived on Capitol Hill for more than a decade and frequented the market almost daily. When we had the opportunity to buy it in 2017, we couldn’t stop thinking about how wonderful it would be to create a community gathering spot right here in our own neighborhood. We’re keeping the heart of market as we’ve always loved it: featuring the highest quality and organic milk, eggs, ice cream and meats; gourmet cheeses and a choice selection of beers. And, of course, terrific wines and creamy butters. (more…)

In much happier bagel(ish) news – thanks to Bry for sending – Bullfrog Bagels has added tea and pie!

Check out Awkpie’s menu here.

Cassava’s website says:

“We make great refreshments that you will feel good about drinking. Created with high-quality, organic, and locally sourced ingredients. Our boba teas and Vietnamese coffee are combined with a mixture of tapioca pearls and honey to add a sweet, filling texture, transforming these humble drinks into delightful treats. We’re so driven to create products that taste natural, unlike the typical powder-based drinks, that we take the time to understand and learn about our ingredients, which is how we found the word Cassava: the root which tapioca comes from.

Where can I get some? (more…)

“Dear PoPville,
I am wondering if your readers have any information on the never-ending Heritage Foundation construction project at 3rd & Mass Ave NE, near Union Station and the H Street Corridor.

I live in a nearby apartment building, and while property management does its best to keep tenants updated, we’ve been putting up with construction sounds beginning at 6 AM, dumpsters and debris lining the street, increased rodent presence, and torn up sidewalks since work on the building began in January 2016 – also when the beloved “Bagels & Baguettes” closed as a result of the construction.
