Great N.Y. Noodle Town
Time Out says
Over the years, New York Noodle Town has proved that it can deliver on the promise of its name. Choose from panfried selections (boiled angel-hair noodles that are lightly fried for a crunchy-soft texture) or softer preparations (served floating in flavorful chicken broth); they can be ordered with roasted pork, duck, chicken or ribs. Suckling pig
is also a treat, but the supply usually runs out by 8pm. In a signature combination, Chinese flowering chives are sautéed with duck, scallops, fish or squid. The chives lose their pungency and sweeten in the flash of heat, making them a great accompaniment to delicate fowl or seafood.

Consider eating elsewhere... heartbreaking to say this. After 20 years of eating here as a loyal customer, I was aggressively yelled at to pay and leavebefore finishing my meal under an hour of eating because they had a long line. I enjoy the food here but will not return. Check the multiple other reviewers who had said the same thing.
Another Chinatown institution, located across from the Manhattan bridge. Large, iconic signage, with meat roasting on display. Open late. Sometimes communal dining. Competent and quick service, may need to speak up or be forgotten. Big menu, stick to ordering what you're comfortable with, but really a lot of good options.
4am noodles in broth will cure any case of the drunchies. Service is a little spotty, but hey it's Chinatown.
Great Food Great Price
For about twenty years I was privileged to travel the world for my employer.
A great deal of that travel was to the Orient, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore.
A few years ago I was doing some consulting work in the city for a gentleman named Chen. He recommended New York Noodle Town, and I have been there many times since.
The food, the atmosphere, the sometimes communal tables, all compare exceptional well with my experiences overseas. Some of the small plates that I have enjoyed; Roast pork, roast duck, baby pig, all on rice. The ribs are fantastic. These are just a few, go with a large group and order 10 or more.
Of the main dishes, Spicy Shrimp Szechuan Style, Pork Chop Peking Style, and just about anything in black bean sauce. These are just a few, the menu is extensive.
The tea that is served is one of my favorites. Its small, it greats crowded, it is not to be missed. Go east on Canal, turn right on Bowery, just two blocks to food heaven.
The Salt Baked Shrimp is a must have. It's incredibly delicious. My daughter's favorite, Beef Chow Foon excellent too. We visit NYC about once a year and we're always sure to stop in. Thanks, Noodletown!
