Far East Descent specializes in Cantonese small plates like dim kam mini ribs, spicy chicken bites, and shrimp toast. While sitting on their rooftop deck under the lights or in their dining room, you’ll be doing it surrounded by colorful walls covered in tigers, dragons, and lotus art. Come here with a group of friends and go for the “Five Beast Board,” which is not a secret sequel to Fantastic Beasts. It’s a family-style plate with tender meats like cha-siu beef rib, plum flower duck, fried sticky rice with chunks of shrimp and lap cheong, and lots of other things that will have you constantly changing your answer to your favorite thing on the tray.
