Two couples joined by marriage - plus a restless mother-in-law who can’t stay out of the kitchen - give this comfy Pan-Asian canteen a conspicuous family feel. With its retro-diner decor, off-the-beaten-track address, and $4-$8 price range, it’s a Soho anomaly where everything is made with care and served with a welcoming smile. It’s also a wellspring of savory sandwiches, salads, and snacks like springy wontons stuffed with snow-pea greens, sweetly spiced chicken wings, and delicate, exceedingly fresh jicama-stuffed spring rolls.
