Food in America: Thamee's Burmese Kitchen

  • Sally's Middle Name 1320 H Street Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

In partnership with Pineapple DC and Sally's Middle Name, we invite you to Thamee: a pop-up restaurant experience serving up a Southeast Asian family-style feast highlighting Burmese cuisine and hospitality.

Join us for an intimate dinner prepared by Toli Moli's Jocelyn Law-Yone, pioneering chef of DC's only Burmese falooda and snack shop, and her daughter, Simone Jacobson, Toli Moli co-owner and general manager, who will moderate the conversation.

Shedding light on underrepresented food stories from Burma, guests will enjoy flavors ranging from sour to sweet. "Thamee", meaning "daughter" in Burmese, celebrates that we are all someone's child and our own children reflect our aspirations. Each generation carries on the kitchen traditions of their ancestors in a new way.
