The second endeavor from renowned chef and restaurateur Tiffani Faison, Tiger Mama is a sexy, bold, dynamic restaurant inspired by the flavors of Southeast Asia. The menu wanders through Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia; it is deliberately expansive in order to balance dishes that are familiar with plates that push the envelope. Instead of re-creating traditional dishes, Tiger Mama respectfully interprets them. The menu offers small and medium sized plates as well as several banquet-style dishes that are ideal for sharing.
Located on the same Boylston Street block as Faison’s award-winning barbecue restaurant Sweet Cheeks Q, Tiger Mama cultivates a vibrant, urban-meets- tropical vibe. There are distinct seating areas that allow guests to choose from a variety of experiences. The front bar has an abstract long tail boat floating above it and Thai, Vietnamese and Malaysian sayings scripted across the wall. The Tiki Bar, in the back of the dining room, specializes in shaved ice cocktails and casts a warm glow with copper laser cut outs of palm tree leaves. An green wall, growing herbs employed by the kitchen, provides a bold splash of color in the center of the restaurant. There are also high tops, custom-made booths and an expansive communal table with a direct view of the kitchen.
