Honestly? Everything we tried. We’ve been following Ceetay on Instagram for 2 years and their food photos are almost good enough to eat so we made a date to try the real thing.

The sushi, noodle, and Asian fusion restaurant located at 129 Alexander Avenue has been the main—if not sole—source of a taste of the east in the South Bronx for more than 5 years.

Co-owner Amir Chayon, an Israeli immigrant turned Bronxite who worked at The Bruckner Bar & Grill after immigrating, foresaw the potential of Mott Haven as an “IT” neighborhood when he opened Ceetay.

Today, as new eateries spring up in the area seemingly overnight, Ceetay’s creative, new menu items aim to make just as much of an impression on diners. But, it’s their staple dishes that make patrons out of customers.

Curious to know what they are? We tried them and we’re taking you on a tasting tour of the favorites from the menu at Ceetay.
