Banana Leaf Malaysian Cuisine
Chinatown is a gold mine of party BYOBs - they’re everywhere, almost none of them charge a corkage fee, and the food is generally really good and inexpensive. Banana Leaf fits all those categories, making it the perfect place to pregame or even be the main event for the night. This small Malaysian spot has bamboo wallpaper and rows of tables that you can shove together if you have a big group. You have the option to order a la carte, but their pre-set menus are the best bet for groups. They come with around 10 courses of things like pad thai and beef rendang for less than $25 per person.
