Union Market, 1309 5th Street NE
After a year and a half of serving up falooda and noodles inside Union Market, the Toli Moli team of Simone Jacobson, Jocelyn Law-Yone, and Eric Wang have opened a cultural hub celebrating the spice diaspora: Toli Moli Burmese Bodega. Aiming to serve chefs and home cooks alike, the Burmese Bodega introduces groceries to Toli Moli’s offerings. Spices, snacks, and harder-to-find ingredients from South and Southeast Asia fill the shelves. Visitors can look forward to new Burmese and Burmese-inspired dishes from Owner and Chef Jocelyn Law-Yone, including Burma Toast (bread topped with a fried egg and house-made chutney) and sandwiches like the chicken tandoori or Chinese sausage and egg made with french bread from Lyon Bakery. Toli Moli's signature faloodas (South Asian dessert snack drinks) will remain a staple of the menu.
