I went to this location on Rivington last night but it's closed (now an Indian restaurant). Surprised no one has reported this yet. Try the location on 14th St.

The food is really good and inventive, mixing Taiwanese and American flavors. But it was kind of overpriced. For two tiny buns (and when I say tiny, I REALLY mean tiny), it costed $6. And the space is a little cramped....

We catch this place on the way to other places. You don't want to eat there but you do want to take the food to go! Total hole in the wall but delicious. We have had almost everything on the menu and would eat it...More

Pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff (read reviews that talked about how rude they were), enjoyed the food-especially the taro fries. Unbelievably small restaurant, dark and a little dirty looking, but I think it only adds to the fringe nature of the restaurant. Would come...More

The baos were a bit stale, I expected that the buns are the freshest, hence baohaus. The curry chicken was a bit too salty. Still it was good and enjoyable, just that I expected more. The sweet fries is a fried bun cut up with...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
