Fried Pepper with Thousand Year Egg

The Mission

MáLà Project is a Michelin Bib Gourmand Recommended Chinese restaurant. First location was founded by four friends in East Village in winter of 2015, and second location was born two years later in Bryant Park. The mission is to bring unaltered, most original Chinese dishes to New York in a 90s China inspired ambiance, and provide an outstanding overall dining experience. MáLà Project wants to be the fun Chinese restaurant that can be enjoyed by everyone.

The Food

MaLa Project specialty. Great to share or enjoyed by one. MaLa dry pot is wok-fried over high heat along with 24 spices and a melange of Chinese medicines. MaLa dry pot becomes elevated with an abundance of chili peppers, resulting in an exciting and complex flavor profile. To build choose a minimum of 3 ingredients, for a hearty meal we recommend 5 ingredients per person.

The Space

Retro style Chinese designs are blended with romantic and nostalgic elements. The rooms are warm toned and glows in soft light from bare bulb pendant lights, and guests sits in vintage metal and wood chairs and tables. The vibe is energetic yet relaxing.
