New Han Dynasty Opens Today With A Late-Night Taiwanese Street Food Menu


And yes, we have a copy of that menu, so you can plan your assault on it in advance of hitting the brand new bar at the brand new location (123 Chestnut Street) tonight.

Word from the kitchen at Han Dynasty is that this is just the menu for now–that the whole thing is subject to change whenever they feel like it and that, in the future, they’re going to be bringing in “accomplished chefs in the Philadelphia area” to expand it. Can’t wait to see how that works out. And to see what kind of “accomplished chefs” they have in mind.

Check out tonight’s menu after the jump.
