  1. Just realized that there was no thread for Ekiben, which was an oversight on my part. Though I haven't actually visited their brick and mortar, I have partaken of their bao sandwiches at the Charm City Cross cyclocross race (excellent post-race refuel), Hampdenfest, and at the 83 farmers market. The baos are reliably tasty, though frequently overstuffed and unwieldy; I wouldn't be mad if they split one bao into two smaller bites and sold them as a pair. In some ways, Ekiben reminds me of my beloved late Shophouse---similar spice level, flavor, and relative level of accessibility. I do need to stop into the brick and mortar location at some point soon to scratch the itch, but I'm glad that the 83 market has reopened for the season so I can visit them there if I don't make it all the way to Fells!
  2. I have to say we were a little underwhelmed by Baohaus. This spot came to our attention when they did a “pop-up” collaboration last fall with Toki Underground in DC, and we really enjoyed their bao there. On this New York trip we were arriving late on Friday night, and were looking for someplace where we could get a little snack, that wasn’t too expensive, and that was open quite late. In all three categories Baohaus delivered. It just wasn’t that great. Not sure if this is helpful at all. I wouldn’t advise you not to go, but I kind of doubt I’ll be back if that makes sense. If I lived in that neighborhood I’d probably pop in every now and then when I wanted bao, particularly to go, and didn’t want to wait in long lines for something from Momofuku. But when I'm in New York from out of town I think there are too many other good places in the East Village alone for me to stop in again.
