You've got to love a restaurant that describes itself as "an East Village dystopian-futuristic Asian roadhouse." Graffiti and neon lights abound at this joint specializing in all sorts of Asian-influenced burgers, served bento-box style with chopped pickles, Terra chips, and mango slaw. The buns are on the dry side, but the meat is juicy--a real feat for chicken patties. If you're feeling extra-gluttonous, tack on an order of tempura green beans or Old Bay spiced fries.
