Hand-pulled noodles at Spicy Village
Delicious hand-pulled noodles, dumplings & soup dishes at a microscopic no-frills spot on Forsythe in Chinatown.
What's the Deal?
It's always a good sign when you walk into a Chinatown restaurant and it's unclear how "this works" (do I seat myself? is there table service? do I go up to the counter?). Clean, no-frills, and a local crowd (a mix of Chinese and NYer) confirm that this is indeed a spot to score cheap and delicious food.
The menu is a little confusing as it lists noodle options under the Hand-pulled noodle dish sections, but just clarify your order by specifying the type of noodle you want (Hand-pulled or any of the others listed) and what type of broth (listed under the menu item). We grabbed the Beef Brisket Hui Mei with beef broth and hand-pulled noodles (delicious) and the Ox Tail Hui Mei with beef broth and hand-pulled noodles (tasty, but tough to eat- a lot of bones in the ox tail).
Deep in Chinatown, it's a quick walk from the B/D Grand Street station.
Bonus- Watch guides Jessie + Nikki try out their hand-pulled noodles here.
