On March 24 I started working on a project called Take Out Only in response to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on restaurants in my area. In my work as a food photographer, I work with a lot of restaurants, both established and new. This is a huge hit for them. When most restaurants fail in the first year, something like this can put even a restaurant that has been in business for years out of business...fast. The impact of this virus has touched so many industries, my own included.
I wanted to bring attention to the places that I've worked with, and the ones that I have never even been to. To let people know what they're dealing with, how they're still
operating, what they're doing to stay safe, both for themselves and their customers. Using what I can out of my talent set, this is my way of saying thank you, we know you're struggling, how can I help.
On Thursday I stopped at Tiger Belly in Granby! I've been here before and I effn LOVE it! I love a good ramen, or noodle bowl. Flavorful, deep broth with noodles, a magic egg (so not sure what they do to it, but it's amazing!!). Ki'Yen Yeung was at the helm, making a huge pot of steaming broth that was the base for so many of their dishes. I ordered some dumplings and my favorite, The Darkness Ramen to go. It has this huge slice of pork belly that melts in your mouth. Magic in a bowl.
Ki'yen and Mina were taking orders to deliver for curbside pickup and delivery.
Tiger Belly is located at 9 MillPond Drive, Granby l (860) 413-9323
Please note: I practice social distancing guidelines, shoot with long lenses to look like I'm closer than I am, get in and get out to stay out of the way and do not go in to kitchen's unless invited, stay far back from food and I check my temperature before going out
