TK Kitchen: St. Mark’s, Manhattan, NY, NY USA
I was introduced to this place from a friend of mine who was meeting with a couple of her girl friends and was really excited to hopefully find some Taiwanese food here in Manhattan. There is a lot of great Chinese food, but Taiwanese food is hard to come by. At first I thought it was a small bubble tea place, but when I found out about the stinky tofu and their snacks menu, I got a little excited.
Things we tried:
Soft sweet tofu with peanuts dessert
– not overly sweet
– decent amount of peanuts
– slightly watery
House chicken wings
– slightly crispy on the outside
– not overly coated with sauce
– slightly small quantity
– not shareable unless you only like one wing or two a piece.
Popcorn chicken: I was actually looking forward to this the most.
– great quantity, easily shareable
– good amount of flavor, consistent with what Taiwanese popcorn chicken should be
– no fried basil (this is money)
– not as crispy with the batter as I’ve had in Asia and in Atlanta
Stinky Tofu with Tripe: don’t be grossed out. This is an amazing dish and honestly, I don’t know how to describe it but it tastes great. If you’re Asian and you’ve had tried with dim sum or other dishes before, it’s definitely an acquired taste for the texture and flavor.
– good quantity
– tripe was well cooked, not under done
– tofu could be stinkier
– not enough tripe.
Would I come here again? Maybe if a friend wanted to meet here. The popcorn chicken was pretty good, and there may be other things on the menu that I would want to try, but mostly if I was really craving Taiwanese snacks. It is conveniently located and they do have a nice seating area in the back part of the establishment. You can find them in St. Mark’s at this address:26 St Marks Pl
