Restaurants, Taiwanese Lower East Side

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.
