Myers + Chang

There are some places you find yourself revisiting over and over and over again. The recent flavor of the month 2014 has been Myers + Chang, the restaurant love child of one Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers. Joanne Chang changed my life with her godly status sticky buns from Flour. I even went so far as to recreate them in my home (here). If I were trying to make sticky sweet unleavened bread for Passover, I would have succeeded. Needless, to say, it was a bit of a proofing fail, but it did taste darn good!

The husband and wife team have created a menu full of familiar twists and turns — savory, bright, complex flavors you’ll find in Chinatown, but with a much hipper spin. Queue that for those delicate friends of yours who are afraid to try dim sum in Chinatown.

fresh rolls served with a peanut sauce that is finger lickin’ good

spicy dan dan noodles

general myers’s chicken wings with candied sesame and orange peel

pork belly bao // miso glazed carrots that may convert you to vegetarianism

pork dumplings

crispy salt + pepper calamari and jalapenos with sriracha aioli

my dining mates who cannot handle heat

Ray Ray! (fellow Cooking Agent, remember this?)

At this point, I’ve probably gone through the entire menu and there hasn’t been anything I’ve been disappointed with. Though some dishes may stray from your truly authentic Chinese eats, I don’t mind the adventure.
