Smokin’ Fire Fish Saved by Collaboration with Tamale Boy in their Ghost Kitchen

Chris Cha, the owner of Smokin’ Fire Fish was almost put out of business because of COVID-19, but the king of collaboration and kindness, Jaime Soltero of Tamale Boy offered his take on a ghost kitchen at the 668 N Russell location.

With the use of Tamale Boy’s kitchen, the Hawaiian poke, plate lunches with shoyu chicken, and kalua pig are being offered for take out and Eliot scores another great restaurant.

The two will collaborate more later this year when they offer a new concept with a mix of the two cultures.

Soltero also plans on opening a third brand at the Russell Street location later this year, Tortas de Mexico featuring cemita buns from Dos Hermanos. Working together to make better options and a brighter future is what’s it all about.
