The World’s Cheapest Michelin Restaurant Comes to New York
New York City cuisine is known for two things: being delicious and costly. It can be extremely difficult to find the foods you love that won’t make your bank account cry. Well put those sad days of overpriced food behind you, New Yorkers! A bargain feast is coming to Greenwich Village!
Mak Kwai Pui, founder of the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant, has opened locations around the world, but is ready to open his first in the United States. From Australia to South Korea and Thailand, the much-anticipated Tim Ho Wan will open this fall on 10th Street and Fourth Avenue in the East Village. Among the items served will be “Steamer baskets of plump prawn dumplings, Mak’s signature trio of baked buns stuffed with barbecue pork, and Chinese-sausage-stuffed glutinous rice wrapped in lotus leaf,” the Village Voice reported. The restraurant will be a relaxed, casual setting and serve alcohol. If a diner atmosphere and alcohol don’t sound good enough for you, you’ll definitely be happy to hear that all the dishes will be priced under $5. Mak is currently looking for a chef for the restaurant who understands the local market of New York City. “We’re headhunting now for a dim sum chef. It should be a local Chinese face,” Mak told the Village Voice. We know that your mouth is watering just thinking about the delicious and affordable dumplings that Mak will bring to NYC, and you can rest assured his signature baked buns with barbecue pork are what will send you into an instant food coma. This is one line we’ll definitely want to stand in.
