The author is the thirty-year-old proprietor of Baohaus, the hot East Village hangout where foodies, stoners, and students come to stuff their faces with delicious Taiwanese street food late into the night, and one of the food world's brightest and most controversial young stars. But before he created the perfect home for himself in a small patch of downtown New York, he wandered the American wilderness looking for a place to call his own. He grew up in theme-park America, on a could-be-anywhere cul-de-sac in suburban Orlando, Florida raised by a wild family of FOB ("fresh off the boat") hustlers and hysterics from Taiwan. While his father improbably launched a series of successful seafood and steak restaurants, the author burned his way through American culture, defying every "model minority" stereotype along the way. He obsessed over football, fought the all-American boys who called him a chink, partied like a gremlin, sold drugs with his crew, and idolized Tupac. His anchor through it all was food, from making Southern ribs with the Haitian cooks in his dad's restaurant to preparing traditional meals in his mother's kitchen to haunting the midnight markets of Taipei when he was shipped off to the homeland. After misadventures as an unlikely lawyer, street fashion renegade, and stand-up comic, he finally threw everything he loved, past and present, family and food, into his own restaurant, bringing together a legacy stretching back to China and the shards of global culture he had melded into his own identity. This book is the immigrant's story for the twenty-first century; a story of food, family, and the forging of a new notion of what it means to be an American.… (lisätietoja)

Taiwanese people are craaaaaaaaaaaazy! ( )

It was more personal memoir than food memoir. Eddie is young and energetic and impressed with his mastery of the language of the things he loves - rap music, street culture, sports, sneakers... His love for food comes up from time to time, but is not the focus. I was saddened by some of his misogynistic turns of phrase especially after recounting a self-directed education that indicates that he knows better. ( )

The only memoir i've connected with, at a personal level! And as a child who grew up in a south asian family not too dissimilar from Mr. Huang's own, I related too almost every portion of it. ( )

I only rated it 2 stars because it just wasn't my kind of book. I could and did connect with some things he said about being a minority in America. I wouldn't read again and probably won't go out of my way to recommend this book, but I am glad I read it. There was one quote that really spoke to me, especially considering this exact thing is happening in a neighborhood close to me; a non-latino coming into a predominately latino neighborhood saying she is opening up a better, "healthier", fruteria.

"Will you give credit where it's due or will you allow the media to prop you up as the next Marco Polo taking spices from the Barbarians Beyond the Wall and 'refining' them? The most infuriating thing is the idea that ethnic food isn't already good enough because it goddamn is. We were fine before you came to visit and we'll be fine after. If you like our food, great, but don't come tell me you're gonna clean it up, refine it, or elevate it because it's not necessary or possible. We don't need fucking food missionaries to cleanse our palates. What we need are opportunities outside kitchens and cubicles." (Page 248 of the e-book) ( )

This is not the memoir that should have become a TV show. I don't have a TV and haven't seen an episode of the show. But with the hype surrounding it (which actually seems to have fallen off after the first couple of weeks, which makes me wonder if it will last for next year), I thought I'd give it a shot. It took quite a while for this to come through the library queue for me, and once again it has proven to be a waste of time.
 
It's his story of a first generation Chinese American, who had both grandmothers who had their feet bound (if you don't know what it means, Google "foot binding". I do not recommend doing so if you've eaten recently or are squeamish) and parents who are trying to make a new life in the US. Unfortunately it was very difficult to get past the rambling, disjointed talk peppered with pop culture references and rap lyrics. He hasn't really done enough or was willing to fill the pages with substantial material. I thought that being really close in age and a similar upbringing would help me relate to him, but I found his writing unapproachable in some ways.
 
I read elsewhere for wistful musings that Roy Choi's "L.A. Son" would have been the better choice to adapt, and I agree. While I had issues with Choi's book (it was less of a memoir than I would have liked), I agree. Choi was poignant when he talks about his gambling addiction, struggles growing up, etc. and it left me wanting to know more. With this book, I couldn't wait for it to end. And while I couldn't relate to Choi either, same could be said for say Amy Tan, but their writing was great and compelling. Huang's really isn't.
 
This would have been better as a blog or at least needed a much better editor to help tighten the prose and shorten the book overall. And while I'm not a huge fan of this style, I think if Huang had been more like other food/cooking/restaurant memoirs (chapter on something then a recipe or a few that are mentioned within the chapter at the end of each or at the very end of the book), it might have been much stronger overall.
 
I couldn't say if this is a good recommendation for someone who is a fan of the show. Based on other reviews, people looking for works on the Asian immigrant experience and the experience of the US born children might not care for this either. Personally I wouldn't recommend it overall and would suggest going to the library if you're really curious. ( )
