Xiao Ye (CLOSED)

Lower East Side
The name of this narrow LES eatery refers to the cuisine found in Taiwan’s late-night markets—in other words, East Asian drunk food. Fittingly, chef Eddie Huang's pranksterish dishes (General Poke-Her-Face Prawns, Cheeto Fried Chicken) are best consumed in the sort of fog that follows too many spiked bubble teas. Suitably sloshed, you may in fact have a fine time—failing to notice, for instance, how much the generic duroc-pork pot stickers resemble the dirt-cheap Chinatown classics, or how the Princeton Review Bean Paste Noodles are like a milquetoast version of Grand Sichuan’s dandan (more sweet than spicy). Otherwise, take your appetite elsewhere.
