With its industrial stainless steel decor, video-game screens and techno soundtrack, this corner snackery at first glance gives little hint of its whimsical approach to comfort food. But the international menu of bite-sized nibbles, kids' favorites and tea- and milk-based drinks does suggest that the café was designed with teens in mind (think Asian moloko bar). The lure of snacks knows no age limits, though, and the patrons nursing fruit-flavored tea, sweetened milk or one of the 20 kinds of virgin daiquiris are just as likely to be seniors. In contrast with its dessert-like drinks, the café's appetizers tend toward the savory: The delectably hot and fatty Hong Kong fried fish balls; sliced Polish sausage; spicy cinnamon Taiwanese crispy chicken bits; and the dramatic baby octopus in a tart red sauce (toddler octopus might be more accurate). French fries, hot dogs, onion rings and buttery, extremely fried french toast, sold by the slice, are also on the menu. Perhaps a concession to the adults, main courses are generous but uninspired, generally involving spaghetti, rice, chops or some combination thereof.Recommended Dishes
