While visiting NY last year, we met up with Bambu, at KJButta & Lauren Santiago’s crib to watch the Pacquiao/Marquez fight. We chatted over Hoegarrdens and baked salmon, while Bam recommended a couple spots to eat. One spot in particular, Baohaus, ran by Eddie Huang, was point blank one of the spots that we needed to go to. Shortly after the conversation, Eddie walks into the house. We exchange words with him about food spots, and his restaurant. If I can just recall the feeling of a mental explosion of food spot recommendations in my brain I think I would have a list of spots to eat at for 3 more NY visits!
One thing is for sure, we paid a visit to Baohaus during our trip, and ran into him again at his spot where he took care of us. I can’t forget the look on Jon’s face when he bit into his Chairman Bao, then ordered 3 more. Baohaus is the truth. Eddie speaks and eats the truth. Congrats Mr. Eddie Huang on the show. It was a pleasure meeting you, we’ll definitely be tuning in to Cheap Bites!
