SNACKY in W'burg!

  • d

HAs anyone tried Snacky yet? Chinese tapas and sake lounge? IT's awesome...they have an unbelievable Shao Bing sandwich made with roast pork on Chinese sesame bread with cilantro and an amazing hot sauce. Also small hot's too cheap.

    1. where is it?

      1. I love it but only during the week. It gets really crowded on weekends. The food is a mixture of Japanese, Korean and Chinese and it's all pretty good and inexpensive. The sake cocktails are also pretty good.

          Thanks for the info -- good stuff.

          Not to be ungrateful or to look a gift horse in the mouth here, but I just don't get the deal with sake cocktails. They just seems so bush league, so obviously a substitute until a full liquor license can be obtained by the purveyor.

          Sake-tinis, sake bloody mary's -- IMHO, they're all suck-e. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

          Give me gin or vodka, or give me death.

        2. any recent opinions on this place? it's been on my list to try for a while now, but i keep forgetting about it when it actually comes time to eat.

            i have a couple of friends who love this place, but I just can't get into it. I have been here 3 or 4 times in the past 6 months and I don't like it. Got there early once and was one of the first to order... first two appetizers were microwaved (big bun AND scallion pancake with egg) and the two ramen dishes we had were flavorless and even kind of gross. I suppose the fried rice is a little better but fried rice is hard to mess up. I've given this place a fair chance and have concluded that the biggest draw to this place is it's price and cutesy atmosphere (altho they have horrible ventilation in there). everything is ridiculously cheap, but tastes that way too.
