Xiao Ye Menu

As announced earlier on Fork in the Road

Here is the menu! We're going to do soft opening with a limited menu, but after a couple weeks, we'll be up and running with this whole menu. The only few items that are difficult to stock consistently are the baby bamboo and river eels. Whole fish will rotate. I'll be in there every morning making the master stocks because a lot of dishes spin off those stocks we make. For instance, we'll have homemade chili sauce that includes chicken stock, the dumplings get infused, I mean, think of any recipe you have that calls for water. Well, at XY, we're gonna hit it with a stock so there's more depth of flavor.

One of the things I like is that there are lots of vegetables. If I came with a party of four, I'd go for a big meat plate, several small veggie plates, a fried chicken, and dumplings. Then, the next time I came back, I'd get a different meat plate, different veggies, try some noodles/rices, etc. I think its a menu that you can keep coming back to as opposed to a restaurant you visit once or twice a year. Hope you guys like.

  1. Sounds amazing!
    Hey Eddie - Me and my two other Baohaus friend fans had set the date to eat at Xiao Ye for 5/27. Haha! 1) We didn't realize that the Crackhaus name is no longer and 2) that the opening got pushed to mid-June. (We thought it was mid-May).

    Anyway, we're all ready to chow down. What is the date of opening? Thanks!
