Chef Eddie Huang: Fresh Off the Boat to Baohaus

Monday, January 28, 2013

Eddie Huang, chef and co-owner of the East Village Taiwanese street food restaurant Baohaus, talks about his misadventures as an unlikely lawyer, street fashion renegade, and stand-up comic before he focused on his love of food and opened his own restaurant. His memoir Fresh Off the Boat is about growing up in suburban Orlando, raised by a wild family from Taiwan, what he learned about cooking from his parents, and his wandering path to his own kitchen.

Re: Music in Restaurants...

For two years I've been going to a local Pub once a week at night. The music they played in the background was usually horrible... Until, three weeks ago... it became true background music... hardly noticable, but at those times I did pay attention, I found myself humming along.. So, I asked the owner last Tuesday.. what was different? He said.. PANDORA RADIO... and with a big smile he says, "and it costs me a whopping $23 a year"... a definite Win/Win combination.

I've traveled and lived all over the world and Taiwanese food is hands down the best food I've ever eaten.
