Tangra Summer, brought to you by Diana Kuan & Chitra Agrawal, is a vegetarian, seasonal Indian-Chinese pop-up feast, this time taking place at Court Tree Collective. We're presenting a multi-course meal served family-style that highlights spring flavors from locally grown vegetables and fruits.
Dinner will be served at 7:30PM.
Tangra is an Indo-Chinese pop up celebrating fresh ingredients grown locally. It was founded by Chitra Agrawal (the Indian half) of The ABCD's of Cooking & Brooklyn Delhi and Diana Kuan (the Chinese half) of Appetite of China & Plate and Pencil. The food pays tribute to Tangra, a Calcutta neighborhood that is home to generations of Hakka Chinese and a cuisine that is a perfect mix of Chinese food traditions and Indian ingredients.
