Tamra Teahouse in Crown Heights makes Asian and African mashup dishes that you’ll want to eat after a long day, or whenever you’re thinking of taping hand warmers to your face. Whether you go for a bowl of the Korean chicken meeyuk soup, a plate of BBQ pork ribs, or one of the many vegetarian options, nothing will cost more than $15. Well, that and a few hours of sleep, since you’ll be thinking about the Japanese curry like it’s your crush late into the night. There are plenty of floral-print-covered tables here and since most people don’t seem to know about this neighborhood spot, you’ll have no problem getting one.
Tamra Teahouse is permanently closed.
