Chinese Laundromat Pop-Up brought to you by Best Quality Daughter

About this Event

The latest concept from Tenko Ramen chefs Jennifer Dobbertin and Quealy Watson returns in a new pop-up Saturday, October 26, at a former industrial laundry on the East Side. An eight-course dinner will include delicacies like Salt and Pepper King Crab with Thom Kha Gravy, Oolong Tea-Smoked Prime Rib, and Twice Baked Bananas.

Best Quality Daughter is the collaborative effort of Dobbertin, Watson, and multidisciplinary ceramic artist Jennifer Ling Datchuk. With the help of architect Vicki Yuan of Lake/Flato and designer Jamie Stolarski, the group will transform the converted industrial steam cleaners into the Best Quality Daughter Chinese Laundromat.

Along with dinner, the evening will include art installations by Datchuk and Yuan, a sound installation by Shanghai sound artist Terence Lloren, craft cocktails by Denise Deglopper (of the newly opened Pastiche), wine provided by William Chris Vineyards, and music from DT Buffkin. After refining the menu in a series of small pop-up dinners, the group plans to open a brick-and-mortar location in the next year.

Best Quality Daughter first debuted for Chinese New Year in 2018, after Dobbertin and Datchuk connected over their shared cultural identity as Asian women in Texas. They bonded over similar types of food they grew up with in Chinese-American families, and launched a series of pop-ups celebrating their heritage and claiming space as Asian-American women.
