M Noodle Shop seems perfectly suited to the late-night crowd in Williamsburg. Pick a seat at the counter and order from the long menu of Chinese favorites: think scallion pancakes ($6), boiled shrimp dumplings (six for $6) and lo mein with your choice of protein ($8.50). Then there are the more unusual options, like sauteed squid with basil and sweet chili sauce ($14) and “dragon fly,” a combination of ground pork, black beans, diced peppers and chives ($12). Veg heads will also be thrilled to hear the restaurant has plenty of vegetarian offerings, like the sesame pancake with pickled vegetables ($7), fried or steamed vegetable buns (two for $5), spicy den-den mein ($8.50) and a variety of tofu and seitan stir-frys ($9.50–$11). Best of all, the shop is open late—until 6am most nights—so it’s always possible to get your egg drop soup fix.
