    If you're feeling brave enough, try the "coffin bao" - fried bao stuffed with fried chicken topped with condensed milk syrup and crushed peanut.

    What more can I say that hasn't already been said? But seriously, try the tofu, even if you're health-averse. If you can't eat the buns (allergy?) they'll make you a bowl of meat on cabbage. Perfect!

    You can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Everything is delicious. Special all week long, any 3 baos and fries for $15. The green tea with sugar cane is a very refreshing compliment.

    The prices are very competitive, and it's got a great alternative feel. This is a solid spot to get some grub when you don't feel like cooking and want a cool place to hang for a bit.

    The Uncle Jesse Bao is a piece of fried organic tofu in a steamed bun slathered with "haus sauce" and covered in "haus seasoning salt," Taiwanese red sugar, crushed peanuts, and cilantro. Read more

    eat the buns there if you can - they don't travel terribly well. tofu and veggie buns are surprisingly excellent. get an apple soda for the side.

    Chairman Bao is a must! I'll say it's a bit overhyped now that you can get these types of buns anywhere for less but it's good place to try out if you're near union square

    Eddie's place here walks the talk! Had the chairman, spiceland and uncle jesse. The spiceland was my favorite but the others were no way inferior. Stamp of approval here as the real deal!

    Must get the Chairman Bao or the Fried Chicken Bao with a side of Taro fries. Service was great when I mentioned my peanut allergy. Not to mention the place is always playing some good Hip hop

    The pro belly is still great but the fried chicken has been getting weirder and weirder over the past couple of years. Also they have not had taro fries the last three times i went :(

    SO GOOD! Get the Taro Fries or the Bao Fries for a stickier, sweeter taste. The coffin fish bao is a bit sweeter than I could handle but the fish bao in general is out of this world good

    Small buns but worth a try! The adobo is Delish... Much better than the broccolini. Taro fries rock! Try the lychee lemonade.. It's to die for (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Some orders are really good, others are okay. Try to order one of each to get a taste first then pick your favorite. My favorite was Coffin Bao Fried Chicken followed by the Coffin Bao Fried Fish.

    the food is not traditional exactly, but the twists maintain the integrity and homey-ness of taiwanese eats. my favorites are the minced pork over rice and the birdhaus bao. hella gooood.

    Hip hop and scribbled decor all over, almost too cool for itself..., but the taro fries themselves and a can of Apple Sidra drink is well worth coming for though!

    Those little baos will be the death of me. Light, chewy but soft as a cloud, and bursting with flavor. If you've never had a pork bun, put down what you're doing and go get one.

    The Birdhaus Bao is juicy and delicious, made with all-natural fried chicken brined overnight. The Chairman Bao, most popular, is served with cilantro, Haus Relish and Taiwanese red sugar. Read more

    Hip hop music, chairman and birdhaus(spicy) bao. Fried fish bao was good too. Taro fries are the winner

    Some of the best and most creative bao buns you'll ever have. Why choose one when you can try all?!

    Steamed, fluffy buns. Gourmet, savory fillings. Find all kinds of scrumptious Taiwanese street food that’ll make your wallet and belly happy. And rejoice, almost everything on the menu is under $5.

    Trendy place for a quick bite. The bao's are small, pricey, and delicious. Get the manager's meal if you're actually hungry. Pair it with the fresh soy milk.

    There's no better place for a cheap and delicious meal. Try the Haus Bao (steamed bun with beef cheeks, crushed peanut, cilantro, and relish) as well as the taro fries!- Brittany, Assistant Buyer

    Eh is the best word to describe this place. But the girl in front. Yum. Sorry. But she's so hot. Oh and they make some sort of delicious juice. I don't really remember what it is.

    Solid cheap eats. Tasty buns and good pork rice. Fills the price void below Momofuku. High quality fast food (tho sometimes, not so fast)

    This is basically the entirety of Eddie Huang's soul condensed in to restaurant. Loud hip hop and amazing bao! pricier than what you can find in Chinatown but fun experience. Bathroom's kind of gross.

    If it's your first time here, Chairman Bao for sure. But all the baos are amazing.

    The pork belly bao and the fried chicken bao are too legit to miss. The vibes are chill and the food supreme.

    You can't go wrong with the Chairman Bao and the Birdhaus. The taro fries are good too. Be careful though. These little baos are more filling than they look.

    The Chairman and the Birdhaus baos. Pork belly or fried chicken. So simple but SO craveable.

    EVERYTHING! But the fish buns were particularly wonderful and flavorful. Perfectly crispy and not heavy or overly fried tasting.

    This place is awesome. Loved Chairman Bao, although I prefer my pork belly crispier, don't like chewing on fat (though many do). Stay away from oyster Bao. Not as flavorful, oysters almost raw.

    Rice bowl was delicious and definitely more worth it compared to the tiny buns.

    The bao with slow braised beef was tender and juicy and the one with deep-fried tofu was awesome too. Around $3 to $3.50 each. Bargain!

    Taro fries are a must. Wish the menu revamp would have included the Brocolini Bao, but can't really go wrong with the Chairman either.

    Most will go straight for the classic Chairman Bao (pork belly) or the obviously tasty Birdhaus (fried chicken). But do not sleep on the Broccolino (tempura broccoli). Extremely good.

    Tasty pork belly bars. Portions are very small so you probably want to order at least 2

    Fun staff and chill vibes. Baos are average size (meaning small), but delicious and pricey. $4.05+tax for 1 Mr. chairman bao

    I actually prefer the Haus Bao (beef) over the Chairman Bao (pork belly). It's a lot less fatty. Get it with taro fries and Apple Sidra. Perfect Taiwanese meal.

    Everything is delicious. Drink the Lang Lang green tea lemonade. Pop next door to the nugget shop after.
