Eddie Huang has gotten on his blog to talk about the American-born Taiwanese food he’ll be serving at Xiao Ye, his new restaurant on Orchard Street. There are some photos of the food, which looks meaty and filling, and a Jadakiss video. And then there is Huang’s explanation for creating a restaurant that he describes as “youth cultural”:
“It sucks that by the time you can afford the dope shit in life, you’re old, ugly, and probably have diabetes.”
Have more poignant and cruelly honest words ever been spoken? In the realm of the restaurant netherworld below Houston Street, perhaps not.
