Kennedy Town's Favorite Fusion JointMissy Ho's cool, anything-goes vibe starts with its fun name and continues when you step into the space, a mash-up of an English pub, Grandma’s attic, and a college dorm room. The chef turns out shareable dishes so good that the spotty service can be overlooked. Favorites on the menu include fried chicken, tender and juicy little pieces served with mustard sambal aioli that go down like a bucket of popcorn. Everyone loves the Wagyu cheeseburgers, miso cod tacos, leek and pork gyoza dumplings, and hickory smoked pepper duck with tamarind ponzu sauce. If you can get a table and cope with the chaos, this place will rock your palate. The restaurant’s buzzy vibe continues even after the kitchen closes for the evening, when a swing near the bar is unfurled from the ceiling and patrons begin to try on costumes.
