What’s the vibe?
This casual Taiwanese-American restaurant has all the usual Brooklyn design tropes – exposed brick walls, white tiles, wooden floors, and minimal decoration. Perhaps, knowing how good their food was, owners Trigg Brown and Josh Ku didn’t want any unnecessary details to distract from the joy of eating here, and rightly so, as this is simply some of the best food we’ve had in New York.
What to order?
As with all exceptionally good restaurants, Win Son has one of those menus that leave you dizzy when trying to narrow it down on what to order. One thing we’d say is absolutely essential though, is the BK Egg Bomb, a roti-style flat bread wrapped around wagyu beef tartare and a fried egg – yes it is every bit as good as it sounds. We’d also have to recommend the pan-griddled pork buns, the marinated cucumber, the fried egg plant with black vinegar and keffir cheese, and the zhajiangmian noodles with lamb, yellow bean paste and cucumber. It’s so good we’re already planning our next visit (for weekend brunch) and we’re also buzzing to hear that the same team will be opening Win Star in Williamsburg in February 2019.
