Taiwanese-style Hamburgers – Lucky New Yorkers

Creator of the Taiwanese-style Hamburger for New Yorkers, Eddie Huang, already had the camera spotlight on him for the Cooking Channel’s show, Cheap Bites.  However, don’t go looking over at the Cooking Channel’s website for information on it, because it ain’t there.  Eddie announced it himself on his blog, Fresh Off the Boat.

Even TV news in Taiwan has carried the story!  On Focus-Taiwan News Channel, they laud Chef Eddie Huang and his restaurant.

Baohaus is a tiny popular spot located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The shop’s specialty and bestseller is “Chairman bun,” made with red cooked pork belly and a topping of the classic Taiwanese condiments — peanut powder and red sugar.

Eddie’s no slouch.  Before he was a chef, he was a lawyer.  Another lawyer escaping the paper cut rat race!  He won an award from Zagat called 30 under 30.

Now if this hasn’t gotten your salivation juices flowing, nothing will.  It sounds like it’s worth a trip to the Lower East side.

    I am Karin Lin. Thank you all for your touching cmoemnts. I’m also glad to know that I haven’t been alone in my experiences, and deeply grateful to ARP for the opportunity to share my story.@Yoli: Siempre creo que somos me1s semejantes que diferentes, y el racismo hace daf1o a todos. Me alegra saber que ustedes celebran todas las culturas de su familia.@Norma: I wouldn’t say that my marriage to a white man was specifically motivated by wanting to blend into the white community. My love for my husband is genuine. However, I do believe that when one grows up learning that white is beautiful and white is powerful and white is desirable, one tends to be attracted to white people, simple as that. I can believe that some women are more calculating about their choice of mate, but I don’t think that was the case for me.@Lxy: My introduction to the anti-racism movement happened within the Unitarian Universalist church, which has some very dedicated people doing this work. I met both people of color and white allies who introduced me to concepts like white privilege and institutional racism, and read the writings of people like Paul Kivel and James Loewen and Tim Wise. I’ve attended one anti-racism conference and hope to go to more in the future. There’s a lot out there, and it’s not too hard to find once your eyes are open to it.
