  1. Another place that sucks, or I should say sucked was Baohaus CNY dinner. Not good at all. To sum it up the lions head soup had literally no flavour. "It tastes like a bowl of water" That is what my girlfriend said.

  2. Eddie's famous! Next time I'm in NY, I'll roll by Baohaus. I promise not to act the fool, so don't put me on blast.

  3. I disagree. A lot of Asian food is about subtlety - not just the bold, in your face flavors. The lion head is one of those dishes where the balance of flavors makes it really nice. It was about the good broth as much as the texture of the meatball. I do understand though - growing up in an over-saucing, mcnugget dunking culture - it was hard for me too at first to distinguish the subtle flavors and balance.

  4. Not a terribly flattering portrait of your character

  5. I'm glad some of these chefs can keep it real. I was in your joint like three weeks back, I'm the dude from the Upper East Side who thought you were down with all the other Bao restaurants. The food was off the chain and in the end that's all that matters. I've got to come back and try the peanuts and the Taiwanese root beer. Keep doing you dunn and speaking your mind. A lot of these chefs are just fucking babies.

  7. Im the anonymous guy from up top. To clarify my point, the Lions head soup was not subtle, it was bland. Almost everything lacked seasoning to a degree. The dessert was gooey and mushy in a bad way. None of the food was horrible. Just horribly mediocre. The whole scene was kind of cute and fun, for 25 dollars I would have given a lot of leeway. For 38 dollars professionalism in the service and food with flavour is a prerequisite.

    I also wouldn't have even bothered posting this if Eddie hadn't chosen to start putting his peers in the business on "blast" before he has even proven himself.

  9. but honestly, we just disagree so leave it at that. you think my food is bland. fine. if you have something constructive like, "use more salt" or "try this seasoning" i'll try it. but if you just want me to tell you my food is bland, i disagree. give it up.
