  Trash and a Bicycle overlook "Bloody Corner"

Doyer's is a basement dive swimming in wood panelling and cheap sparkling wine....and those are the high points...

Well, not really. I thought the food was great, actually, and as one might expect in Chinatown, the bill was as cheap as my father's new fiancee.

A very eclectic crowd frequents this locals' fave, and, though I've seen less exuberant reviews, I enjoyed every plate. Skip the crap sparkling I ordered and stay with the beer. Oh, and don't expect real service. Very confused floor staff.

Favorite Dish: I honestly can't remember what I ate. I think the spring rolls we started with were quite yummy...porK? What the Hell is wrong with my memurry?

Oh, and the corner where Doyer's is located is called "Bloody Corner" because it was where the Chinese Mafia would historically drop their victims' bodies. Many think it's a haunted corner.

Enjoy your meal!
