WASHINGTON, DC. - Ever since Georgetown MBA graduate Noobstaa Philip Vang launched the food delivery service Foodhini  in October of last year, Washingtonians have been able to get Syrian and Lao food cooked by first-generation immigrants delivered straight to their front doors. Now you can add Tibetan food to that list.

Starting today, Dorjee Tsering, a Tibetan refugee and founder of the local food startup Dorjee Momo, joins the Foodhini family of chefs, bringing with him the traditional flavors and dishes of his native Himalayan cuisine.

Foodhini dishes (think chicken shawarma, crispy rice lettuce wraps, and falafel, to name a few) are prepared in DC’s Union Kitchen food incubator by immigrants and refugees. Vang got inspiration for the idea from his own mother, a refugee from the Hmong community in Northern Vietnam who came to the U.S. speaking no English, “but with an incredible skill for cooking,” he says.
