Diamond Hill Cafe--The Asian Chipotle in Chinatown
- Chandavkl Feb 19, 2013 10:23 PM
Some of you may remember the Chinatown branch of Carnation Cafe, and particularly their sandwiches using Chinese pineapple buns as bread. When they closed down last year a hand scrawled sign popped up in front proclaiming the upcoming arrival of Diamond Hill Cafe, which I presumed would be another Chinatown dim sum bakery cafe. Imagine my surprise when I finally made it to Diamond Hill and found nothing of the sort. Rather it's a place offering build your own burritos and tacos with Chipotle like condiments but Asian fillings. Biting into my tofu burrito, I thought to myself "tastes like Chipotle." Other choices include Teriyaki chicken, Korean beef, and duck. Diamond Hill Cafe is at 147 Canal St.
