Malai Kitchen, the husband-and-wife-owned restaurant offering a modern take on Thai and Vietnamese cuisine will host their annual Bia Hoi sidewalk pop-up restaurant on Saturday, October 21 from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. (or until they run out) at their West Village location at 3699 McKinney Ave.
The one-day pop-up will feature a Hanoi-style street food stall along with unique bites like you might find in a stall in Vietnam, and Malai’s signature Vietnamese beer, Bia Hoi, which will be served for $1 per pint. Guests will be able to have an authentic experience as they dine on tiny plastic stools and tables.
