‘JaJaJa’ Vegan Spot Falls Victim to Plant Theft
For JaJaJa, Chinatown isn’t so welcoming, after all.
Apparently, a plant theft transpired last week at the new vegan Mexican spot. Store surveillance cameras caught a Chinese woman uprooting and stealing a “plantas Mexicana” from its window box. There’s currently a printout of the footage taped to the front window which reads, “plantas thief, we see you.”
JaJaJa (i.e. Spanish version of “Hahaha”) opened last month at 162 East Broadway, housed in the combined spaces that previously housed the second incarnation of Golden Carriage Bakery and an old newsstand. The LA-style restaurant – it certainly takes a page or two from Dimes – instantly angered a cross-section of locals with its pompous illuminated marquee and trendy swagger.
