The team behind Blagden Alley’s Hong Kong-inspired hot spot Tiger Fork, has announced it will open a brand new restaurant called Hei Hei Tiger.

The group will spin off Tiger Fork’s Cantonese cuisine, serving a playful menu of Chinese BBQ, HK-style Noodle Bowls, and Milk Tea in a unique fine-fast casual format.
The restaurant will open within the Urbanspace Food Hall at Tysons Galleria.
The culinary program will be led by co-owner Will Fung, who has been part of Tiger Fork’s operating team since day one.
He spent his entire 2018 in Kyoto, cooking and training in 3-Michelin star restaurants as part of a one-year work program with the Japanese Ministry Of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries.
“Before we opened Tiger Fork, we always had this idea to open a hybrid service, casual-style concept offering Chinese BBQ and Hong Kong noodle soups. After seeing the success and positive response to Tiger Fork, and with Will at the helm, we’re excited to make our first expansion outside of DC.”Owner Greg Algie.
They will also operate the main octagon-shaped bar at Urbanspace, serving Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) cocktails from beverage director Ian Fletcher, teas, tonics and more.
Hei Hei Tiger is expected to open in early winter 2019, on the third floor of Tysons Galleria at 2001 International Drive in McLean, VA. For more information, please follow the restaurant on Instagram at @heiheitiger.
