Great New York Noodletown is a Chinatown classic, and one of the best late night eats options around. Things move fast here - don't be surprised if your soup shows up at the table before you’re even done ordering. You’ll appreciate that come 2am. They're known for their roast duck, but we'd recommend the wonton or pork soup, and pan-fried noodles.

Food Rundown

Soup

Obviously, you’re starting this meal off with a bowl of soup. The Won Ton Noodle Soup is where it’s at - especially the shrimp - and the roast pork in noodles is also excellent.

Roasted Duck

One of their most-talked about dishes, though not actually our favorite thing here. Know that the roasted duck comes out cold, and that we prefer the pork.

Roast Pork

The fatty strips of roasted pork are quite delicious. The crispy outside layer is done just right. Pig > Duck.

Soft Shell Crab

Another one of Great New York Noodletown’s famous dishes. During soft shelled crab season they fry ’em up and salt ’em down like no one else. These crabs are damn tasty, albeit a little on the plain side when you take away their main source of seasoning. Definitely worth ordering, but not worth going out of your way for.

Pan Fried Noodles

What Noodletown does best - high quality noodle dishes that go down easy. We tried on the Singapore Chow Funn and it went over well. The Beef Chow Funn is the go-to.

Chicken

We’ve sampled the Genersal Tso and the Kung-Po chicken dishes. Both totally fine, but nothing to write home about.
