A preview tasting of the just opened Red Farm had my mouth watering for more. I stopped in to this new West Village Chinese influenced restaurant a few weeks ago and had a great meal. It's a fun restaurant, with a barn-like setting, where Chinese inspired fare awaits.
A wagyu beef tart was the perfect bite. Succulent and tasty, a touch of sesame seeds for crunch. A great start.
Red Farm's version of chicken salad is festive and flavorful. An abundant amount of different ingredients, flavors, and textures all working harmoniously surely tickled my taste buds.
Okra and Thai eggplant with yellow curry was a splendid salad.
For some of the most fun starters you'll ever have, try the flower-like spring rolls, the Kumamoto oysters with Meyer Lemon-Yuzu, and the ever-so-cute and fabulous 'Pac Man' shrimp dumplings. You'll have a blast eating these guys!
My favorite dish of the night was the clay pot chicken. I loved the flavor of this dish. The chicken was braised amazingly and was tender as can be. Delicious!
For all you steak lovers, you can't go wrong with the marinated rib steak with bok choy. Really good. Order a side of sautéed snow pea leaves with waterchestnuts and garlic, a Chinese staple done right.
End with the simple, yet perfect chocolate pudding, and your Chinese inspired meal will be complete.
