Third Culture Bakery Brunch 

When: Through June 24, 11 a.m.
Price: $42
The mochi muffin started it all. Third Culture Bakery’s first hit pastry earned legions of fans for its squishy, buttery texture — the muffins are baked with mochiko rice flour — and subtle notes of pandan and coconut. You can find Third Culture’s distinctive creations in roughly 40 Bay Area cafes, and now, the primarily wholesale bakery has its own retail operation at the Berkeley Kitchens. (It’s currently softly open, serving pastries, matcha tea, and some more experimental offerings, such as mochi muffin waffles topped with espresso whipped cream.) To celebrate, owners Sam Butarbutar and Wenter Shyu are hosting a series of weekend brunches that express their Indonesian and Taiwanese roots. They’ll share stories and invite guest speakers during these five-course meals, which might feature remixed versions of the mochi muffin and other popular pastries; beef rendang, the Indonesian curry; Taiwanese green onion pancakes; desserts; and an open, DIY mimosa bar.
