Dave Grohl's Last Meal (2008)

Bamboo House

The Foo Fighters' frontman deserves the city's best egg foo young! This much-maligned cornerstone of Chinese-American cuisine is getting difficult to find. Since the untimely demise of Jade Mountain, Bamboo House has become the East Village's most ancient Cantonese eatery, a maze of red lanterns and green Formica. Egg foo young comes in the standard formulation of three eggy patties rife with sprouts and pork drenched in brown gravy, which tastes great against its backdrop of plain white rice.
