Tiffin Asha | Portland Food Cart

Tiffin Asha is hard to miss. Sporting a canary-yellow elephant on a blue background, their sign is as vibrant as the South Indian food they serve. Elizabeth Golay, chef and owner of Tiffin Asha, was introduced to Southern Indian cuisine by her wife, a native of Andra Pradesh. “I immediately fell in love with the unique flavor profiles, the lightness of the cuisine, and the techniques of preparation,” she says.

Elizabeth Golay

A graduate of the California Culinary Academy with years of restaurant experience (including a stint at Boston’s Oleana under James Beard Award-winning Chef Ana Sortun and two years as the pastry chef at Seattle’s Poppy), Elizabeth had been searching for an opportunity to make her own mark in the culinary world. She saw her chance in South India’s relative lack of representation in Portland’s food scene. “When we think of Indian food, we think of the curries from the North. It became important to me to introduce the food from the South, which has been sorely overlooked.”

Elizabeth began to play around with family recipes, adding her own twists to create unique dishes that are traditional yet wholly her own. Her most popular, the Hot Chick Dosa, features a golden dosa wrapped around Draper Valley Farms pakora fried chicken, pickled greens, yogurt cheese, and drizzled in black cardamom-infused honey. Or you can go for the Vada Holes: fluffy nuggets of savory dough sprinkled with coconut-chili sea salt perfect for dunking into sambar. If you want to take the flavor to 11, most dishes come with “gun powder,” clever little packets of spice blends for mixing into sesame oil and creating your own condiment. (As far as condiments go, the house made chutney bar is a can’t-miss as well.)

In southeastern India, “tiffin” means “snack” and “asha” means “wish.” Elizabeth chose both words to capture her desire to branch out on her own in the food industry. “I was done working hard for other people’s dreams,” she explains. “I wanted to start working for mine.” Judging by the contentment she exudes while working in her kitchen, and the loyal following she’s garnered since starting her food cart, it’s safe to say her hopes were not misplaced.

golai replied to your post “Jazi’s Adventures in Japanese: I am learning how to make my own…”

Does duolingo offer Japanese? I really liked their model for refreshing my very rusty German and starting to learn Russian.

No- they’ve been “working on it” since 2011. I’m in part using an app that breaks things down like duolingo called Human Japanese (~$10 but worth it imo), along with various other software and resources (thank you again @fydbac for the book and game recommendations!). A few of my apps are actually set up so that I can talk to someone who is about equal to my comparable level of Japanese in English, so that I can text and call them to help with my Japanese and they can do the same to help with their English- I started with that last night.

A big part is that my phone is now converted to being able to switch between English and Japanese so that I can challenge myself but I can also back out of it if what I’m reading is too hard (remember I’m starting with some experience with spoken, just very little written), so I’m practicing every time I switch from my laptop to mobile.

And I also now have a couple people to practice with! Some followers and some friends have been pretty interested in helping me learn and I have an old offer from a Japanese doberman friend to use her as a resource whenever I put my foot down about wanting to become fluent, so I have a lot of good resources!
