We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Balloo

Down a long fluorescent hallway in a Downtown office building, you’ll find Balloo and its dozen seats wedged into a corner. The dining room has old photos, an antique cabinet, and is doing its best to make you feel like you’re in a house somewhere in the Caribbean rather than a block away from a Walgreens. No matter where you sit, you’ll be able to see everyone in the restaurant as they eat from a small but wonderful menu of Indian, Trinidadian, Carribean, and Chinese dishes. The menu changes a lot, but we like the spam fried rice, Singaporean chili crab tteok-bokki (stir-fried rice cakes), and amazing cheung fun with dried shrimp and scallion rice crepes. We’ll happily keep coming back here, especially if their phenomenal Thai-style micheladas are involved.
