Details:

A taste of Taiwan comes to the Columbus Circle at the Turnstyle Marketplace. Zai Lai, which stands for "come back soon" in Mandarin, is the first brick and mortar location for Chef Edward Huang's Taiwanese family-style concept. The emphasis is on all day "street eats" with each dish named after extended family like Mama's Special Chicken, Cousin's Beef Noodle Soup, Lion's Head Meatballs and Ama's Five Spice Pork. There are Auntie's Steamed Pork Buns and Ex-Girlfriend's Oyster Omelet. Breakfast brings Scallion Pancakes, Ham Egg & Cheese Bing, and Rice Porridge with pork belly. Zai Lai is also offering a Family Festival Meal which consists of two entrees, two vegetables, four pork buns, rice and pickled vegetables which serves up to 4 people. Hot and cold specialty milk teas are also sold in flavors like lavender, jasmine and taro. Zai Lai is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To see more click here
