Profile

This Greenpoint spot features a unique mix of Oaxaca and Taipei street foods using humane/hormone-free/natural/local ingredients. The food makes up for the lackluster décor: Solid red-and-white walls act as a gallery space with rotating artwork, and there are a few bright pillows. The chef, beverage director, and general manager all met on the West Coast before launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to open Lucky Luna, and the effort shows. Here, shredded Peking duck-filled baos share the table with “reverse” carnitas tacos — named because the pork is seared first to lock in moisture, and then braised in beer and oranges for four hours. The result is that there’s big flavor on small corn tortillas fresh from Queens’ Tortilleria Nixtamal. Another good order is the noodle soup: Braised flat iron beef and thick wheat noodles come in a salty broth, which spice lovers can order with extra chili oil. If you want something rich and comforting, opt for a bowl of pozole, a hearty red stew with pork, hominy, and vegetables that’s also available in vegan form. To end your meal, try the dulce de leche rice pudding, which is topped with cinnamon and Fuji apples.
