New York Chinese

Recommended Posts

NY Noodletown still doesn't accept credit cards? :( Perhaps that's why I haven't been back for some years...

Bring a $10 bill and go to town!

Manhattan Chinatown was tumbleweeds last night. I know it's a Wednesday but I've never seen it that empty at night. The reports about the business drop-off is real. And very sad. We went to spend some money last night so had dinner at NY Noodletown and there were two tables when we arrived. Never been treated better there.

Baby pig

saltfish and chicken fried rice

sauteed peas shoots

Ms. Flon had never been and was over the moon

 

By the time we were leaving a few more folks had arrived. And a contingent of Spanish tourists who were FASCINATED by the ducks hanging in the window. Told them to get the baby pig and they seemed fired up as they were overwhelmed by the menu.

 

Next week we hit Vegetarian Dim Sum on Doyers

Interesting.  In my 'hood, Wu's is as busy as ever; of course, this is the Jewish section of Chinatown.

just for the record, all of new york is tumbleweeds right now... my last two trivia nights at both locations were empty.. where it's normally standing room, we may have had 6 teams at each location.  I went to crocodile last night, place was 2/3 full at 945 last night.

I would suggest Mott's Buddha Bodai instead of Vegetarian Dim Sum House, unless the latter has found flavor since I went there long ago.

 

I've been gobbling soup dumplings in Bensonhurst, and plain dumplings at my favorite greasy-chopstick takeout in Prospect Heights. Fighting the delicious fight.

 

None of which will matter when the wholesale suppliers scale back no matter how well any retailer keeps customers coming back.
