PAC-MAN EATS PLAYFUL GENEROUS CHINESE AT RED FARM

Red Farm combines inventive and playful chinese food with a down-on-the-ranch “fresh and friendly” ambience…and this West Village star is now opened on the Upper West side, great for something yummy, casual and close to Central Park.

We went for lunch to fill up before a skip around the park and the playing started as soon as we got in the restaurant. The menu boasts fun starters, a vast and confident dumpling section and huge “family style” platter main courses.

Dim sum master chef Joe Ng and Chinese food expert Ed Schoenfeld aim Red Farm to be one of the most exciting and influential restaurants in the country and I would say it is… only in a very casual way. RedFarm brings a greenmarket sensibility to modern and inventive Chinese food and a super-charged dim sum section. Most of all, you come away feeling inspired, full and delighted with visual presentation and flavors.

MUST TRY:

– Pork and Shrimp Dumpling Skewers

– Pac Man Dumplings

– Crab and Pork Soup Dumplings

– Flat Iron Steak Salad *** It might be the Salad of the year!

Pork and Shrimp Dumpling Skewers

Pork and Shrimp Dumpling Skewers were my favorite. Super fresh al dente shrimp lighting coated in dumpling paper with a great spicy dipping soy sauce.

Playful "PacMan Shrimp Dumplings" filled with crisp shrimp and served with a tempura pumpkin shaped like a Pac Man. Very fun.

Pork and Crab Soup Dumplings

Eat these Pork and Crab Soup Dumplings with a spoon and enjoy as they melt in your mouth (careful they can be messy) with delicate flavors of crab and minced pork. Fun to try

The Flat Iron Steak Salad

The Flat Iron Steak Salad may be the most delicious Steak Salad I have ever had! Its huge, tender, juicy, flavorful with touches of sesame oil, fresh fruit, spices and nuts.

Lotus Root, Okra, Snap Peas, Pressed Dofu was large, warm and enough for a family to share. The firm and nutty bite of the lotus root brings this vege dish to the next level and balances out the light and delicate asparagus and snap peas.

Three Chili Chicken, addictively spicy and sweet with 3 types of chilis to stimulate your palate. Large generous portion

Red Farm Funny

Loved this!! Very funny

WHAT TO WEAR? 

Why not go a bit Rockabilly and wear a casual cotton button-up shirt and a floral skirt… Down on the farm in the city.. like from this Marie Claire story. Wear your hair in a pony tail with a quiff in the front. You know what’s going on 😉

Red Farm is still my favorite restaurant in NYC. Cant get enough of those dumplings. You could just eat dumplings and the meal would rock.
