Beijing, China — After catching glimpses of popup cafes in California and New York via Twitter or blogs, I felt inspired to participate in one, but wondered how. Beijing Design Week offered that opportunity. Kupa Studio’s Raina Ho and Wang Wei set up Sky Light popup café in a dilapidated courtyard, propped up some tables, dragged in a fridge, invited some cooks, and we sold good eats!
We all brought food cooked or warmed in rice cookers! Who knew so much good food could come from a rice cooker?
Kin Hong, newbie to Beijing, made tacos that sent our taste buds back to taquerias in California. After finding tortillas produced by Bimbo bread, he used a rice bowl to cookie-cut the proper taqueria-sized tortillas from them. He served both carnitas and lengua.
I hope to see more of these events and collaborations in Beijing.
