Profile

In the Williamsburg spot that last housed Pasar Malam, the Chinese Club serves Chinese food by way of India. The owners, who also run the Malaysian restaurant Laut, cook food in the key of the four C’s—coriander, cumin, cilantro, and chiles. Their menu takes its inspiration from the Chinatowns of Kolkata as well as their Hakka Chinese heritage. When you're presented with tandoori kung bao chicken, juicy from the tandoor and crunchy-spicy with a slew of peanuts and bird’s-eye chile peppers, it’s not hard to understand why Indian-Chinese cuisine is as popular in India as General Tso’s is here. The “Yummy Soup Dumplings” are more gummy than yummy, but then everything is rectified with giant-flavored Peking-sauce BBQ ribs, all sticky and supple. Calcutta chili garlic noodles are a comfort-food festival—two kinds of noodles (skinny egg and broad rice) bright with chile paste and lime and just greasy enough to almost warrant guilt if they weren’t so damn good. Wash it all down with a mango lassi (only available weekends) or a Kingfisher, which help tame the heat.
