The Bao

One Of The Best Soup Dumpling ”Bao” in NYC

 

I came here with no expectations and guess what!? All the foods were very good and so cheap. I knew place is known for great soup dumplings but I really enjoy Mapo Tofu and Sautéed Snow Pea. Lamb with Cumin spicy was bit too salty but good. I always order Beef Tripe in Chinese restaurant and this one was not the best but good enough. 小籠包 Pork and Crab both dumplings were excellent!!

Hakkasan

Fancy Chinese at ”Hakkasan”

Happy Birthday to my boy Peter a.k.a Pinkyotto CEO!!! Twelve of us celebrated his birthday at this fancy shmancy Chinese restaurant called Hakkasan near Times Square in midtown. There’s no fancy door on the outside. Then when you walk in it is like you are checking into a boutique hotel. This place’s decor doesn’t have the wow factor of other big Asian Fusion restaurants likeBuddakan or TAO. Maybe because it has a low ceiling and not the open space like other famous oriental restaurants. My photos are of all the dishes our group ordered from the prefix menu. My favorite dish, hands down, was the Crispy Duck Salad. It was very yummy! My second favorite dish was the Silver Cod. My food photos don’t have prices because, like I said, it was a prefix menu. My SuPa generous friend, Peter, treated us for most of the dinner and we all paid only $100 each. He is always such a gentleman to all his friends (^_^) Happy Birthday P ~ Thank you for dinner ~ Cheers
