The lowdown

Before Fresh Off the Boat, the sponsorships, and Vice, Eddie Huang was an attorney turned up-and-coming chef, who, along with his brother, opened Baohaus, a fast-casual Taiwanese spot dealing in bao sandwiches and rice bowls. The original location on Rivington Street closed in 2011, but Baohaus 2 is still going strong, serving up chef-y takes on the Taiwanese classic, like the Chairman Bao with Berkshire pork, relish, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar, and cilantro as well as the Manager’s Meal, a rice bowl with pork belly, minced pork stew, and fried chicken. You’re unlikely to see Haung behind the counter these days, but the food is as satisfying as ever.
