“Ganso ”

  Night Out Asian Brooklyn Cheap Eats Great

. They give you another bowl and spoon, and there’s no silly sharing fee. Which is great because the portions are really too big for one to finish when coupled with all the first courses you’ll be eatin’. 

For those with a craving for something a bit spicier, you have a choice between the Spicy Miso ($13) broth with braised pork, an egg, and greens,  or the “Stamina” (I suppose Japan’s answer to Viagra?), a thrilling chicken-soy-chili broth hit up with shrimp paste, with Napa cabbage, garlic chives and chicken ($14). This was my favorite. Running around after a strong-willed, hilarious little Energizer bunny of a three-year old most of my days, I need all the stamina I can get.

There’s not much in the way of dessert at Ganso, though you might like to have one of the adorable Ramune Japanese sodas that you self-carbonate in flavors like watermelon and yuzu ($4 each). They’re sweet enough. Ciao Bella ice cream cups are served, and the mango sorbet is a refreshing way to end a meal. So far, there’s no liquor license but wine and beer are expected shortly. That didn’t seem to be a problem for us on any of our visits, but a cold beer would be a nice accompaniment. It will be there soon enough.

After a meal at Ganso, on your way home or on your walk back to the Subway, stroll down the Fulton Mall and marvel at all of your retail options. You can pick up a $5 wireless plan, a hot pink wig, a couple of dollar t-shirts, and a new outfit from Armani. Gotta love Brooklyn.

Ganso is located at 25 Bond Street, 718-403-0900, www.gansonyc.com
