Great NY Noodle Town

Little hole-in-the-wall noodle joint in Chinatown.

What We Had

My DH had the Roast Pork and Wonton Noodles Soup – This soup had some of the best Chinese-style pork either of us have yet eaten. The wontons were good, but the pork was the real star here.

I had the Roast Duck and Noodles In Soup – The duck tasted great, but be forewarned that the meat is cleaver-chopped and includes bone fragments. Eat with caution.

Both bowls had deeply flavored broth (his had a fish base; mine had duck base), and the noodles were fresh and expertly prepared.

Décor

Nothing fancy, mostly white walls with menu items and mirror.

Service

About what one would expect. Perfunctory. Stink eye-free, even though we were the only ’round eye’ table in the joint for much of our meal (a good sign, to be sure).

Overall Impressions

This is a great place to grab a really cheap, good bite any time of day and into the wee hours of the morning. Be prepared; the restaurant accepts cash only.

Rating

4 out of 5 for great pork & comforting noodles.
