The eatery will be moving in at 1111 Shepherd Drive, Houston, near the Washington Avenue intersection.
"As a longtime admirer of Houston, it’s a privilege to bring Tin Drum to this world-class city," Founder and CEO Steven Chan said in a statement. “The food scene here is authentic and genuine. The people are fantastic and inclusive of all walks of life and cuisines."
The cafe, described as casual and modern, will offer an array of street food items, including stir fries, soups, sidewalk sandwiches, wok-tossed noodles, curries, ramen and boba tea, according to the release.
The menu is inspired by a mix of cuisines, including Chinese, Szechwan, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian and Korean dishes.
The interior of the restaurant will feature colorful art, neon lights and graffiti, meant to be reminiscent of an urban Hong Kong streetscape. Wok-tossed dishes—such as citrus pad Thai and Singapore curry chow mein—are made on demand in an open kitchen environment.
The 2,200-square-foot venue will seat 50 people inside and will also have a patio.
