Diners will soon have a new opportunity to dig into Southeast Asian cooking from Tiffani Faison: The chef’s popular Fenway restaurant Tiger Mama (1363 Boylston St.) will introduce a weekly Sunday brunch starting January 14, featuring brand new entrees and cocktails between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. A while back, the restaurant served a dim sum brunch, but it’s been a dinner-only operation in recent months — until now.
The headliner of the new menu, the Mama Mac Burger, is the restaurant’s first-ever take on a burger. Made with two pork flat patties and topped with American cheese, roasted onions, fish sauce tomato jam, mayo, and lettuce, the burger comes with house hash browns and rice salad for $15.
A section of the menu titled “sweet thangs” includes dishes like gingerbread pancakes and a bacon cheddar waffle that comes with Thai chili butter, while rice-based dishes come topped with everything from tuna poke to grilled Vietnamese pork and Indian fried chicken. There’s also a shrimp toast Benedict and a Viet yogurt pudding, and regulars at Tiger Mama will recognize four items from the restaurant’s dinner menu under a section called “the classics,” which includes street noodles, house fried rice, pad gra pow, and banh mi.
