Hao Noodle first opened up a few years ago on 6th Avenue, serving excellent Chinese dishes like dumplings made of an egg crepe sitting in a chicken broth, or mung bean jelly in a spicy Sichuan sauce. They now have a new location on 14th Street, just at the edge of Meatpacking, with a slightly different menu featuring a large section of single-serve skewers. There’s no liquor license yet, but this place would work well for a nice but non-sceney meal in Meatpacking.

Mission Chinese Food
The Lower East Side location of Mission Chinese used to be a party. Now it feels like one that ended a while ago.
A Philadelphia import with a big following has now arrived in the East Village. Overlook the dumpy interior and shoddy service and put your face into a bowl of Dan Dan Noodles.
