[Eddie Huang] -- The author is the thirty-year-old proprietor of Baohaus, the hot East Village hangout where.
He goes through many tribulations of his own devices; graduates from law school only to become, like his father, a restaurant owner.
His love of food is apparent; his love of minor criminal activity is also. What undoes him is his love of street slang which is inappropriately funny; many of us have met that person from another language who has picked up so much American slang that they become almost completely impossible to understand, and this guy is him! He is really focused on being COOL, which is hilarious in anyone over 18, and he is still carrying this banner into his 30's!
The way this story is written will make it a classic many years from now, as an archaic example of early 's slang, which, I suppose, makes this book worth reading? I really enjoyed reading about Huang's experiences as an Asian American, his critical comments about racism, his voice, which ranges from academic to street.
I was hoping for more of a food memoir than a coming-of-age memoir, but it was still a fun ride.
I was a Chinese-American kid raised by hip-hop and basketball with screaming, yelling, abusive parents in the background.
If that makes me a rotten banana, well, tell it like it is. Everything my parents did to me and their parents did to them was justified under the banner of Tradition, Family, and Culture. My mom always wanted to send food back.
Everything on the side, some things hot, some things cold, no MSG, less oil, more chilis, oh, and some vinegar please. I spent the first five years of my life handcuffed to a playpen in the middle of this mini-mall furniture-store office. Before I even knew about guns, I was trying to shoot myself.

Fresh off the boat : a memoir
Search Catalogue Website. Average Rating: Rate this: Eddie Huang 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, Eddie wandered the American wilderness looking for a place to call his own. Eddie grew up in theme-park America, on a could-be-anywhere cul-de-sac in suburban Orlando, 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, Eddie 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, Eddie 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'd melted into his own identity.
As reader and author , Eddie Huang is a great storyteller and has a great story to tell. He is relaxed and intimate, energetic where the tale merits. As EH reads, he chuckles at his own stories which add to the pleasure of listening to his story. He likes food. He likes thinking about it. He likes talking about it. He likes cooking it. He likes eating it.
This book is filled with such good descriptions of place and people. It brings you right into the story. If you love food and have a soft spot for coming of age stories about rambunctious rascal kids this book is for you! Like l lukasevansherman Sep 27, "We weren't Americans like everyone else.

I'm a fan of the show that's based on his book, but there are quite a few differences. Huang's book is rougher and rawer than the show.Gary Jennings. The Widow Next Door. Life at the Dakota. As he finishes by saying, Eddie may not speak for all Asian Americans, but his voice is needed just as much today as ever.
