CloverSlurps: Super Taste in NYC Chinatown
A tiny little hole-in-the-wall, looks dingy but is still Sanitation Grade A, where you sit amongst the handful of tables with strangers, where a single waitress runs up and down the aisle taking orders, her voice hoarse (is it from all that shouting?). I read about this as one of the best place for hand-pulled noodles in NYC’s Chinatown, although to be honest we had originally tried to go to Sheng Wang across the street, but they were closed. No matter. We sit and order spicy beef noodle soup ($6) and bao (3 for $5.75). The bao are soft and slightly sweet, peanutty and with tender meat that melts in your mouth (although Fred found it a bit too fatty for his taste). Such a bargain, filled with locals, delicious hand-pulled noodles (although in retrospect I should have ordered the knife-shiven noodles rather than the regular hand-pulled ones). Check them out on Yelp!
