Tommy Lee has proven himself the pied piper of urban Asian cuisine in this town, luring the cool kids first to hip LoHi ramen bar Uncle and now to this funky RiNo homage to the hawker stalls of Hong Kong and beyond. Dimly lit and humming with smart young things, the two-room hot spot serves a bevy of regional Chinese street eats—Taiwanese beef noodle, Shaanxi rou jia mo—albeit with cheffy twists to complement the ingenious cocktails and spice-friendly wines.
