Foursquare Tips

  • a michelada, the thrice-cooked bacon, the chongqing chili chicken wings, the salt cod fried rice and, like, lots & lots of beer. use one napkin for your hands and the other for when your eyes tear up.
  • NYers keep turning out in droves at this nondescript storefront, dabbing their sweat-beaded brows & fanning their overheated mouths for relief from chili-oil-soaked peanut noodles & peppered pickles.
  • Bring a carton of milk with you.
  • Incorporates regional Chinese, Japanese and American elements along with balls-to-the-wall spiciness in a semi-subterranean premise. Critics' choice for winner of Best of NYC, Best Chinese (Hipster)!
  • astoundingly, the vegan versions of the pork jowl and the thrice cooked bacon are amazing.
  • Twin peaks soundtrack in the bathrooms!!
  • I believe in karma. I believe the thrice-cooked bacon was created for me because of something nice I once did. It spoke to me.
  • The wings are covered with chilies. Don't eat them and then take a piss, without washing hands.
  • it hurts so good--if you thought you could handle spicy food, this is a new level
  • 2 hour wait on a Friday night...0 minute wait during lunch on a Friday.
  • Thrice cooked bacon with rice cakes, tofu skin, bitter melon and chili oil. Not for the faint of heart or small of stomach, but absolutely delicious and incredibly spicy.
  • Mapo Tofu is so spicy it'll make you want to slap your mother.
  • pastrami; very delicious, communal tables are annoying, chicken wings very spicy but dry, lamb delicious but on the bone so not very classy, knowledgeable waitstaff, overall winner is cucumber salad
  • Get with the Mapo Tofu x Kung Pao Pastrami x Thrice Baked Bacon. Beware. The spice ratings are the truth.
  • Right now, the menu is full of "greatest hit" dishes like the Kung Pao pastrami and the salt cod fried rice, as well as brand new Bowien creations. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Broccoli beef cheek is real good
  • It would be a considerable stretch to call this Chinese food
  • Twin Peaks restroom. This is all you need.
  • Don't believe the hype. Food isn't bad but not worth waiting over an hour for. Cool space though.
  • Excellent food. AND they play creepy twin peaks music in the bathroom!
