I was recently invited to a dinner party celebration of Cathay Pacific’s non-stop flights from IAD (Dulles International Airport) to Hong Kong. The festivities took place at one of DC’s hottest restaurants, Tiger Fork. The restaurant is located in Blagden Alley and Naylor Court District in the Shaw neighborhood. From the outside, the red brick front with a large octagonal window was reminiscent of an underground Asian night club. I was beyond excited to go inside.
Upon entering Tiger Fork, the large dragon and lion murals painted on the brick walls caught my eye only after noticing the rows of rustic wooden communal tables with bench seating. The balloon like lighting with tassels hanging above the tables added an interesting touch to the look and feel of this restaurant.
The food was absolutely delicious! Guests were treated to the best of what Tiger Fork has to offer including: BBQ pork ribs, chicken fried rice, Tofu Clay Pot, cold dan dan Noodles, jumbo prawns, salads and desserts. The drinks were also free flowing with artisan craft cocktails that were out of this world yummy! Overall this is a fantastic Chinese fusion style restaurant, perfectly fit for the celebration announcing Cathay Pacific Airways four-times-weekly nonstop service to Hong Kong from Dulles International Airport beginning this September 2018. Cathay Pacific’s new Airbus A350-1000 will be the longest nonstop air route to both Hong Kong and the Washington, D.C. region, and the longest flight in Cathay Pacific’s global network, at 7,085 nautical miles.
Dulles International in Washington, D.C., will become Cathay Pacific’s seventh passenger service gateway in the U.S. and ninth in North America. The airline, which launched nonstop service from North America in 1983, flies to Hong Kong and beyond over 100 times per week from Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Newark, New York (JFK), San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver.
