Mao’s Kitchen

The revolution will not be televised

Save to my Account

You may have to navigate past society’s unfortunates to dine here, and if you opt for an outside table, the line between the haves and the have nots could make for an unsettling meal. Inside, you can indulge in a fantasy of China’s Cultural Revolution and enjoy a décor heavy on Mao-era posters.

Lots of vegan choices on the Chinese country-style menu. The bamboo steamer dumplings come with either a herb-seasoned chicken filling, or a choice of black mushroom, bok choy, wood ear mushroom or smoked tofu filling. The atmosphere is casual and friendly at this brick-wall boite, and a brisk takeout business makes takeaway a snap.
