Year of the Takeout Day 148: New Double Dragon (TARO General Tso’s?)

by

Vegetarian General Tso’s Chicken from New Double Dragon (37 First Avenue, 212-598-07300)

OK, just a couple of things tonight, because it’s hot–and who likes to work when it’s hot?– and this $9.25 dish can be summed up pretty quickly.

That said, taro is great, but when it’s doused in GT’s sauce, it tastes a lot like fried potatoes with a sticky-sweet glaze–which is really only meal-worthy if you’re into sugary starch. If you’re looking for more nuance or something meatier, opt for the tofu.
