Chef Surbhi Sahni launched Tagmo (“tigress” in Bhutanese) as its own full-blown restaurant in mid-September in Seaport (it originally began as a virtual mithai shop in 2019 and transitioned to a meal-delivery service during the pandemic). Bringing her considerable experience of two decades (Devi and Tulsi, Saar Bistro), Surbhi is a pioneering force in the industry—a queer Indian female chef celebrating the regional cuisines of farmers, spice wallahs, and homecooks; championing the welfare of her employees by paying livable wages; collaborating with small batch, sustainable food producers; and supporting food relief organizations. Mithai on offer include modern spins like burfis made with salted pecans, rose coconut, raspberry almond; classic favorites like besan ladoo and kaju katli. Savory items from the kitchen include sabudana vada, Maharashtrian crispy tapioca cakes of potatoes and roasted peanuts; gushtaba, Kashmiri minced lamb dumplings; and eral chukka, Tamil ghee-roasted prawn.
