Fresh Off the Boat by Eddie Huang

freshofftheboat

Eddie Huang is the notorious executive chef of Baohaus, an East Village restaurant that specializes in Taiwanese street food. In this memoir he shares what life was like growing up in Orlando raised by a family of FOB (fresh off the boat) “hustlers and hysterics.” Rebelling against every “model minority” stereotype Eddie loved football and hip-hop, fought bullies and sold drugs–and throughout it all his anchor was food.
