Meet Formosa, Bushwick’s dumpling destination. This Taiwanese corner spot on Evergreen Ave. sells eight dumplings for $12, and they arrive doused in crunchy chili oil, clocking in at a very solid two bites each. We also like the popcorn chicken and lu rou fan with tender braised pork. You can do takeout, but we'd recommend eating in the plant-filled space that feels like your friend’s living room—specifically that friend who's really good at stooping, and can somehow make a bunch of mismatched wooden chairs and tables look like they belong in Architectural Digest. Come for a casual weeknight dinner with friends (they’ll eventually serve beer and wine too), order most of the menu because you’d be lucky to have leftovers, and just take the last dumpling when everyone else is too polite to claim it.
