Top Chef alum Dale Talde's restaurant Talde, in Park Slope, Brooklyn is serving some fabulous Asian-American fare. I stopped in recently and loved everything I had.
An appetizer of Pretzel Pork & Chive Dumplings with a spicy mustard ($8), could be the best potstickers I've had. Truly ingenious. I wish they would sell these babies in the frozen section of my local supermarket. Order them.
Saigon Crepes ($12), smoked shrimp, Chinese bacon, and mint, were delicious.
Crispy Oyster & Bacon Pad Thai ($16) is truly awesome! The crispy oysters and bacon take this pad thai to a whole other level. I loved it.
Black Pepper Short Ribs ($26), with pickled red onions and puffed rice, is succulent, tender, flavorul, and splendid!
End with Talde's version of the Filipino dessert Halo-halo, it is fun and fantastic! The addition of Captain Crunch will make you feel like a kid again.
