Here’s how to score the gratis goods: Follow the restaurant on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Weibo, then present your fandom via smartphone when ordering. You’ll be able to choose from any of the shop’s hand-pulled (stewed oxtail, hot-and-sour vegetables) and cold noodles (buckwheat, liang pi) or Chinese-style burgers made with cumin-spiced lamb and stewed pork. If you want a second helping, you’ll have to fork over some cash, but most of the dishes are under $10.

The Chinese-food chain began in Flushing and quickly became a cult favorite, even garnering attention with a spot on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. The new 900-square-foot slurp shop on Manhattan Ave is the first of the chain’s locations with an outdoor space for extra seating, offering a 600-square-foot backyard to be used in warmer months.
