New Soup Kitchen - Tiger Lily's on Mt Pleasant

Just opened, new evolutionary result of the old Wanda's in the Kitchen with Dinah space, serving casual daily menus with some of the classic soups that Dinah has done over the years. As it seems to be the catering kitchen for her operations, there will probably be many interesting things coming up. Looking forward to see what they do, and having another Peking duck quesadilla.

  1. I LOVED that place. If it's as good as the old place, I'll be a regular.

    1. I am so excited!! Tiger Lily was wonderful.

      1. Ah... good to know. I'd been craving Dinah's duck quesadillas. Is it still take-out only, or have they installed some tables and chairs?

          They have some tables and chairs, as well as takeout. And yes, the duck quesadillas were in evidence.

        2. Does anyone have an address and phone number for it?

          1. By "new evolutionary result of the old Wanda's in the Kitchen with Dinah space", do you mean that Tiger Lily has opened where Wanda's in the Kitchen with Dinah was?

            Seems odd, given than back in January, Dinah shut down her retail operation there to concentrate on catering, and Wanda stayed in the location (or so someone reported here on CH at the time). So now Wanda's out, and Dinah has reopened it as a new Tiger Lily?

              Yes. It's the old Wanda/Dinah space. It looks like Wanda is gone, though still taking orders in the area through Sherwood Market across the street.

              And yes, the plan in January looked different. Nice to see that there's some takeout/eat in.

                Interesting. And very good news, if this Tiger Lily is as great as it was down on Queen Street.

                  I had to check this place out..seeing as I have nice memories of her old restaurant on queen west.
                  Ordered a bowl of pho...and indeed it was flavorful, with big chunks of tofu (instead of chicken). I was happy.
                  My dining companion had a bowl of pho with lemomgrass, coconut milk and salmon...and there were no complaints either. LOL.
                  The place is cheerful, with several tables and for sure will be returning.

                    Yay! I always liked Tiger Lily on Queen, except in the summer when the lack of air conditioning made eating a hot bowl of soup rather unappealing. I'm looking forward to trying the reincarnation, especially since it's now so much closer to me.
