roast pork noodle soup @ mee

Non-CTown Chinese – NYC

So I’ve been having a dilemna these days; to eat or not to eat in Chinatown. “WHAT?!,” you ask, “YOU LOVE CHINATOWN!” Well, something happened recently…

The BF found a bandaid in a dumpling from my favorite dumpling place. I mean, for the past 5 years, my fridge has been stocked at all times with a bag of frozen pork dumplings from the shop. Now, I just don’t know. I’m skeeved.

Which means I’ve been sadly eating Chinese food from my neighborhood Chinese restaurants.

Mee Noodle Shop & Grill is my go-to when I don’t want super spicy Sichuan. And for the most part, it fills the need. The roast pork noodle soup ($7.30, $1.50 extra for wontons; pictured at top) is pretty solid, although heavy on the MSG. The duck noodle soup, on the hand, is way too salty, and the wontons are skippable.

Regardless, chili oil make everything better, so ask for it.
