My girlfriend and I were extremely excited to go here. We first made our way to Dale's other restaurant, Pork Slope, to get the chicken and waffles appetizer then to Talde. When we got to Talde it was quite busy, but we got a seat at the bar and that's when everything went downhill. The bar tender, Day B (what was posted on our bill), was rude and unhelpful. I understand that it was the brunch menu, but all I asked was that if it was possible to get an order of Dale's so highly regarded wings instead of the waffle and wings since we just came from pork slope. The bar tender immediately shut us down and said it couldn't be done. He then went on saying that we could just order the waffle and wings, but without the waffle. His attitude and tone was extremely off putting and soured our experience to the point where I wanted to leave. The only redeeming factor, 4 stars, was his breakfast ramen, which was cooked quite well and the only thing we ended up ordering. This bar tender left me with such an unpleasant feeling and ruined our Brooklyn experience. I love Dale and I have always wanted to go to Talde since seeing him on Top Chef, but I doubt I'd ever come back.

Not a huge fan of Asian fusion to begin with but quite honestly nothing really blew my mind except for the shrimp toast with gravy and the pretzel dumplings. We also ordered the Korean fried chicken, which was dry. The oyster and bacon pad thai was not bad but the plum sauce flavor fell short and the oyster and bacon seemed like it was thrown in haphazardly. The pork shoulder was expensive and was good but tasted like something I can get at a Chinese restaurant for a fraction of the price. Talde is a solid chef with an impressive resume but overall this restaurant is just okay.

To be honest, I had fairly low expectations prior to coming to Talde. My preconception was - expensive for little portions that are not that imaginative. In a way I can see why some might think so as a friend pointed out a few that are meh so I'll skip right to the ones that you should order. For brunch: Bacon Pad Thai, Lemongrass Chicken, Lobster bao (if you're feeling spendy), and the Coconut Milk grits (special). The Pad Thai is just awesome. Nevermind the pork belly. Ok scratch that - it's all about the pork belly. lol The lemongrass chicken is just a really tasty healthy alternative to everything - since it comes with fresh romaine lettuce (on ice) to wrap. The lobster bao is just awesome and I'd reserve ordering it only on a special occasion (like my birthday) - $16/ 2. And the Malaysian style grits with the mushrooms - so yum, I hope they keep it on the menu. We also had the tater tots people seemed to rave about, and while yeah - they were tasty with the sriracha ketchup, it's not worth having the extra carbs if you're on a diet. Also, the Vietnamese coffee was tops. I'll be back. =)

We went for brunch on a Saturday, and when we saw the fusion menu, we were very excited. We are a fusion marriage - Note my wife is Korean, I'm a Hunky from the midwest, and we've lived in various countries in Asia, and know our Asian food. This fusion left us lacking. My wife ordered the Ramen, which she found to be rather bland. I ordered the Korean fried chicken wings and waffles. The wings were good, but not really Korean style at all. They were a fusion of Hooters Hot and Quaker Steak and Lube's Golden Garlic Sauce. I'll take Kyedong Chicken in Flushing any day. We ordered a few other things that were good, not great. Add to it an Ice Coffee that was $4.50, and we were turned off. We both sensed that this was a place that people want to go to because the owner was on Top Chef or some other show (he was there and seemed like a very nice guy). I bet the dinner menu is better, but we walked out of there wanting to go to Chinatown and really get Asian.

Where pretzels meet pork dumplings and hip-hop bangers meet the dining room. Talde serves up savory Asian-American delicacies to the tune of a low-key, yet Brooklyn cool vibe. With a welcoming ambiance for groups of friends and family, portions are built for sharing. The pretzel pork dumplings, kung pao chicken wings, bacon and oyster pad thai, and short rib are all stand-outs. Get there early, put your name in and head to the bar for great service and fun, specialty cocktails - most noteworthy from our Halloween visit: spicy margarita topped off with a skull apple slice.

Our party of four shared everything and the dishes ranged from excellent to very good. Highlights were the fried chicken appetizer and main course and the kale salad.

Talde has some inventive dishes like the refreshing fried rice, and the yuzu avocado dip that looks like sushi. The best small plates are the pretzel fried dumplings, the wings, and the fried rice. Servers are really great! The kitchen is a bit slow with pushing out dishes during high volume dining hours. It's nice to come here at least once, just to check it out.

It has a severe identity crisis: it doesn't know what kind of Asian it wants to be and therefore throws everything together haphazardly. I tried 6 items on the menu, 3 appetizers and 3 entrees, and all were a miss. The worst offender was the yuzu guacamole, which was salty ham paired with a ton of soy sauce. It sent my palette into a frenzy for water. The worst entree was the oyster and bacon pad thai; little oyster and no flavors incorporated into the pad thai itself. The best item on the menu that wasn't recommended by any people, mind you, was the Lemongrass Pork Shoulder. I'd say Talde has to manage his restaurant better and be more focused on what he aims his food to stand for.
