"The restaurant is a revelation of flavors and preparations, with Tsai right there in the open kitchen, picking up plates and schmoozing with wide-eyed guests. The quandary for you, the diner, is what to order. How do you stop yourself from ordering six, seven, or eight dishes when they're serving Japanese sweet-potato chips with an addictive charred-scallion-and-meat-jus dip; pot stickers jammed with rich braised beef cut with celery; curls of tender pork tail crisped to perfection over sticky rice studded with pulpy chunks of sweet mango; the phenomenal Mom's Salt-and-Pepper Shrimp; and a dozen other dishes I had to save for my next trip?"

"Adventurous offerings are much more appealing — and, with smaller plates all $13 or less, fairly accessible for the unsure."
