Watch Danny Bowien Order Everything on the Menu at Spicy Village


Follow Mission Chinese Food chef-prodigy Danny Bowien to Spicy Village and he’ll insist, stubbornly, on getting the whole menu, from the pork pancakes to the hand-pulled noodles to the trays of braised and fried chicken served with whole dried chile peppers and spices. On the walk back to Orchard Street, he’ll consider those flavors, and by the time he’s on the line again, this handsome Nowness video shows, he’s figured out how he’s going to use what he just tasted to try making something new. “We honestly, totally knocked off a few of their dishes because they’re so delicious,” he says.
