Austin’s East Side King, an Asian-inspired mini chain that includes two food trucks and two storefronts, makes an appearance outside of the Lone Star State next week with a one-day pop-up at Toki Underground on H Street NE.

The takeover takes place January 24 beginning at 11:30 AM and will feature a few East Side King classics along with some new dishes created for the event. Visiting chefs Paul Qui, Moto Utsunomiya and Jorge Luis Hernandez have crafted a menu that includes beef-tongue kare kare buns, beet home-fries, fried Brussels sprouts salad and Thai chicken karaage, which is described as deep-fried chicken thigh with sweet-spicy sauce, fresh basil, cilantro, mint, onion and jalapeño.

As one would expect with Toki, space is limited and reservations aren’t available. More details can be found here

Coincidentally, Toki Underground chef-owner Erik Bruner-Yang continues Tokifact - his own pop-up at Artifact Coffee in Baltimore - tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday night (202-388-3086).
