Southeast Asian Cart Opens in Tumalo 

Offering dishes inspired by India, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand

A new Southeast Asian food cart is taking up residence at Bend Cider Company in Tumalo. Tekka Tiger opened in its current location as of late October, serving up varying dishes inspired by countries including India, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

The menu changes regularly; last week it included flavors from Malaysia, including the coconut beef stew Beef Renang and Tempeh Manis, a stir-fried tempeh in a sweet soy sauce. Kley Dhillon spent 10 years living and traveling in Asia before opening the cart with his wife Rashita Banu in Central Oregon, according to the owners.

Tekka Tiger is open from 12:30 to 4pm Friday through Sunday at Bend Cider Company at 64649 Wharton Avenue in Tumalo, and offers pop-ups elsewhere in Central Oregon.

Editor's note: The print edition had the cart's hours from noon to 4pm. The hours are 12:30pm to 4pm. We regret the error.
