  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Being Cali transplants, we could not be happier when our fav chinese joint decided to join us on the East Coast! EVERYTHING is delicious, but you'll always find the thrice cooked bacon on our table!
