We're back on Oakland's best patio for our monthly pop up at The Double Standard.

Facebook event page here.

We'll be out of town in January so this will be our last one for a minute. Hope to see you all there!

Menu:

- PUMPKIN LAKSA (Gluten Free)

Rice noodle soup in broth made from coconut, chilies, lemongrass and scratch-made spice paste, loaded with tofu puffs, roasted kabocha (Japanese pumpkin), radishes, bean sprouts, braised shredded yuba, herbs, guajillo lime leaf sambal and (optional) chili oil.

A spicy brothy noodle dish popular in Southeast Asia. There are many delicious variations of this dish, and we hope you'll enjoy our meatless, seafood-free, but flavor packed version, with a seasonal twist.

- RED OIL WANTON

Meaty beancurd, green onion and seitan filled dumplings, boiled and doused in Sichuan peppercorn and red chili oil, seasoned black vinegar and cilantro.

These tender Sichuanese dumplings in tingly spicy vinaigrette have become a comfort food for many beyond their province of origin. Traditionally filled with pork, our version is every bit as savory.

Spice marinated seitan skewers served with peanut sauce and acar (spicy pickles).

Initially from Indonesia, satay has become a staple all over Southeast Asia, including Singapore, with local variations. We will also have coconut marinated tofu skewers as a gluten free option.

Italian dinner in SF

Italian dinner in SF

As a duo, we've been focusing more on menus reflecting Marie's Singaporean background lately, and less on Shane's Sicilian roots.
For this dinner we're switching it up and bringing back some of our Italian inspired favorites, all vegan and made with and influenced by local seasonal produce.
Our pizza crust, made from scratch (like everything else) is a fluffy, thicker Sicilian style, with lots of olive oil.
We look forward to cooking for you!

This meal is reservations only: http://fst.im/s/50d42dce?rf=fwebcmktshrecopy .

Singaporean Vegan Dinner with Feastly (SF)

7:00 PM19:00

Singaporean Vegan Dinner with Feastly (SF)

"Join us as we prepare dishes inspired by our favorite flavors from back home, adapted using locally sourced produce and without the meat -but all the flavor. 

While this meal isn't one of our special "spice lovers' only" dinners, it's not for the faint of heart with a couple courses being a little chili-heavy!

Shane and Marie are S+M Vegan, and they've been putting their years of professional cooking, their passion for seasonal produce and the influence of their combined Italian and Singaporean heritage to the front of their mission, bringing people together around flavorful, colorful, more sustainably prepared meals."

Reservations only; please click here for seats and details.

MENU

SPARKLING STRAWBERRY SHRUB

A fruity and bright shrub we made from Gaviota strawberries, topped with ice and sparkling water, to get things started. (Option with gin available)

CAULIFLOWER GORENG

Turmeric infused cauliflower with peanut tamarind sauce, coconut fried tempeh bits, pineapple and cucumber acar, sambal oelek and lettuce cups.

Indonesian and Malaysian flavors are prevalent in Singapore, as shown in this fried cauliflower dish with nutty, earthy crumbled tempeh (fermented soybean patty), peanut sauce, acar (spicy pickles), and sambal (a generic term for an array of spicy condiments and sauces). Each bite is to be formed into a lettuce cup, for added crunch and freshness.

STUFFED BRINJAL

Roasted eggplant stuffed with soft tofu, white pepper and dill, served with tomatillo sambal, radish, and fried shallots.

This tender roasted eggplant is served with more delicate flavors, reminiscent of how white fish can be enjoyed.

SINGAPORE NOODLES

Rice vermicelli stir fried with our char siu seitan, green chiles, peas, spinach, gai lan, cilantro and curry powder.

Not really a traditional dish at all but tasty in its own right, and very close to the mild "fried beehoon" dish found at most hawker centers (minus the curry powder).Our nod to the famous non-Singaporean Singapore noodle is packed with seasonal green vegetables and comes with a small ramekin of chilies pickled in vegan fish sauce, for optional added heat.

ICE CREAM LOTI

Strawberry rose ice cream on soft pain de mie with pandan gems and salt roasted peanuts.

Ice cream loti is a popular and nostalgic ice cream sandwich sold on the streets of Singapore in rainbow bread. Strawberry, pandan (a nutty herb used in savory and sweet dishes, often nicknamed "Southeast Asian Vanilla" in reference to how commonly it's used) and peanuts come together for a decadent hot-weather treat.

5:00 PM17:00

Pop up at The Double Standard

This month we're popping up at The Double Standard not once, but twice!

Menu:
- GENERAL TSO’S BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Our award winning country fried Brussels sprouts coated in a slightly spicy and tangy sauce and topped with sesame seeds and scallions. 9

Our take on the Chinese-American classic, General Tso's Fried Chicken, which happens to make for a great bar snack.

- TURNIP CAKES W/CARROT CHORIZO (GF)
Pan fried savory white radish cakes with smoked carrot chorizo, yuba crackers and hoisin sauce. 8

Savory turnip cakes (also commonly called carrot cakes along with many other names) are a dim sum and hawker food staple, a nostalgic treat for our Singaporean half. This version has added contrasts from the smoky carrot and crispy yuba (soybean milk skin).

- WANTON MEE
Fresh wheat noodles topped with thick slices of our charsiu seitan, fried tofu and garlic chive dumplings, gailan, pickled serrano chilies and sesame-garlic soy sauce.
Served with a cup of boiled dumpling soup. 12

A Cantonese dish that has variations in several parts of Southeast Asia, wanton mee (or wonton noodle) is another food court classic. In Singapore, the noodles largely default to being served dry with the broth on the side, instead of everything being presented as a soup, and dumplings come both crisped and soft for twice the fun.

Notes:
- We accept cash and card.
- No reservations required, first come first served basis.
