Bago now serving food to-go on 1st Avenue

A new to-go restaurant called Bago (quietly) opened Saturday in the former Hibachi Dumpling Express space, which (quietly) closed on First Avenue between East 13th Street and East 14th Street.

A quick glance at the menu inside (they weren't yet open for the day — their hours are 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.) revealed a handful of Thai/Chinese Filipino offerings, such as a ginger broth with either chicken, pork or tofu ($6.95), pan-sauteed noodles with either chorizo, chicken or tofu ($6.95) and grilled soy-glazed thin pork chops or chicken ($7.95).

Hibachi Dumpling Express opened last August… taking over from the 2 Bros. Pizza outpost.

Updated 6-25

A reader let us now the proprietor here is the daughter of the owner of Elvie's Turo-Turo, which closed back in 2009 across First Avenue.

tried them once
that was more than enough
surprised they stayed open as long as they did
there are already plenty of dumplings within a few blocks, mostly not so great,

Hmmm (or maybe "shhhhhh); that WAS quiet.

I noticed their shutters this weekend. They had maybe 4 choices, and they were all bad. And they didn't make up for the bad food by at least having cheap prices.

I have eaten here twice and loved it each time. Had the Tamarind broth with chicken and the chicken a dojo. Both excellent and cheap. I'm rooting for this place.
