Profile

Shih and Skin Lee, Taiwanese-American siblings whose parents own a Chinese place near the U.N, opened this sleekly modern eatery and bar in a new condo tower beside Long Island City’s Pepsi-Cola sign. The menu at this affordable spot is familiar: a Hong Kong-trained chef also schooled in Vietnamese and Thai cuisine prepares Pan-Asian fare such as peppery, deep-fried “popcorn beef,” stir-fried chicken moo goo gai pan, and Thai seafood tom yum soup fierce with lemongrass and chili. Sushi creations are pleasant but indistinct.

Recommended Dishes

Seafood tom yum soup for two, $12; popcorn beef, $14; spicy basil beef, $14
