My first effort alongside one half of Yardbird, Lindsay Jang, Pirate Kitchen had its first pop up event last month, and I must say it was a pretty great success! The Filipino street food was cooked by the talented Erik Idos of Nobu Hong Kong at Joyce Wang’s Wang Space, and it was a great gathering of family and friends. Thanks to everyone who supported us at our first even...
