My boyfriend and I were really looking forward to eating at Talde. We live in the neighborhood and have passed by a few times only to find over an hour wait, which was too long, so we left. When we finally decided to get there at early at 6:30 the place was packed with an ultimate homogenous park slope crowd, but we managed to get a table in 20 minutes or so. We ordered the pretzel pork dumplings and sliders to start. All we tasted was salt. Although a little disappointed, we ordered wonton soup with ramen. I have never tasted saltier soup. It was inedible, so my boyfriend cancelled the main course. The staff was wonderful through our stay, and the owner cancelled the check - which was quite gracious; we were happy about that.

As big fans of Dale from Top Chef, we were very excited to try Talde and we were not disappointed! We went on the second night the restaurant was open so obviously there were a few kinks that needed to be worked out (it was very hot inside and our food came all at once after waiting quite a while initially), but nothing that took away from our enjoyment of the meal. The place has a great vibe and is very spacious. We had the Perilla Leaf, very good, but really more of an amuse bouche than something to be ordered off the menu; the Saigon crepes - tasty but very big portion; the Pretzel Pork and Chive Dumplings - LOVED those; Wonton noodle soup - excellent, but could have used more delicious broth in the bowl; the BBQ Pork Shoulder - perfectly tender with a fantastic spicy mustard dip; the Oyster and Bacon Pad Thai - very tangy and full of flavor unlike so many bland pad thai's we have had recently. Our waiter was a wealth of information in regards to the menu and we even had the opportunity to meet Dale who was extremely modest and kind. Definitely worth a visit!!
