    The atmosphere is trendy but really relaxed. Bring a group of close friends and share a bunch of these Asian small plates. Picky eaters beware.

    We were the first people to walk in and we were the last get our food. I would say, they are racist against their own race as everyone is white and I'm Filipino.

    The coconut and lemongrass panna cotta was fantastic but I can't say the same for the rest: inedibly burned pork belly and overcooked octopus. I'm sure it's just very unfortunate but still... :(

    Call in advance to ensure you have a table, I recommend the strip steak if they have it-- it has this universal grandma's homemade flavor that can't be beat.

    Drunken Shrimp, Chinese Sausage and Shrimp dumplings! If you take the tuna tartar, make sure you get it before anything else, as it works more like a salad.

    Easy to miss - go through the red doors and up the stairs! Mushrooms/bamboo was delicious, but the reason to come here is the "hidden" vibe + BYOB!!

    If you like key lime pie, try the kalamansi custard tarts. It's a soft custard cream made with the kalamansi fruit, a Filipino lime.

    I would go back if only for the garlic rice. Contrary to popular opinion, the pork bun would only be good if you've never tried any other pork bun in NYC. It's huge and very filling though.
