Boundary Road Tasting

BaoHaus’ Eddie Huang Pop-Up Event at Toki Underground

baohaus at toki underground

Our favorite Washington DC ramen restaurant, Toki Underground, is hosting a pop-up event with Eddie Huang from BaoHaus NYC. Chef Erik Bruner-Yang will be working the line with Eddie serving Toki’s ramen and BaoHaus’s pillowy steamed buns filled with the delicious fillings listed below. Erik told us: “This is going to be huge for DC and hopefully Eddie won’t burn the town down.” In case such an event happens, Eddie’s law degree might help them get out of trouble.

Friday October 14 from 7 PM and Saturday October 15 from 5 PM

Featuring Toki Ramen + Chairman Bao (Berkshire pork belly), Haus Bao (Creekstone beef cheek), BirdHaus Bao (brined chicken), and vegetarian Uncle Jesse Bao (organic fried tofu).
