Cabin fever got you wishing you could hop on a flight to Asia? For an affordable Taiwanese feast (minus the plane ticket!), head to Cork Wine Bar & Market in Waterbury on Wednesday evenings, now through Valentine's Day. Inside Cork's chic but cozy bar, you'll find steamed buns stuffed with spicy mala tofu or pork and cabbage, plus chile-slicked sesame noodles (handmade, of course) loaded with fresh veggies. Thirsty?
