You’ve probably already seen us recommend cozy Taiwanese spot 886 in the East Village, but we’re excited to endorse their new lunch menu. Tuesday through Friday from noon to three in the afternoon you can get a small bite, a stir-fry, AND a main dish plus a drink all for just $15. Everything in this picture – just $15 at 886!
Start out with the honey glazed popcorn chicken or vegetarian crispy silken tofu, move on to the charred cabbage and bacon or tomato and egg stir-fry, and finish up with scallion pancakes or the lunch exclusive Taiwanese sausage rice featuring Taiwanese sausage, cured egg yolk, and garlic lard served over rice. Enjoy your meal in 886’s dining room while sipping on a Coke or an Apple Sidra, a Taiwanese apple soda. All photos by Ben Hon.
