Welcome back to Haus Call, where Eater periodically checks in with BaoHaus and Xiao Ye chef/owner Eddie Huang to see what he’s up to these days.
At last, Eddie Huang has nailed down a final drinks menu for his new Taiwanese restaurant Xiao Ye. A month ago, Eddie penned a blog post about early test runs of the new cocktails, many of which were inspired by Tiki culture. And just last week, the Huangster told us that he wasn't going to mess around with fancy pants ingredients for the drinks list. So how does the final menu look? Pretty crazy: highlights include two person punch bowls, a number of frozen beverages, and even a cocktail that mixes 50 Cent's flavor of Vitamin Water with rum, vodka and chambord.
We've got the full menu below, and according to Huang's latest blog post, everything's going as planned with the liquor licensing, so expect an opening announcement soon.
