Ho Foods

$$$$

Ho Foods is a tiny spot in the East Village where people tend to wait an hour or more to eat Taiwanese beef noodle soup. So what do you get once you finally sit down? A very good broth that’s been cooked for 24 hours, wheat noodles, and slices of beef, plus extra add-ons like tendon. There are only 10 seats, and the soup comes out quickly, so plan on using Ho Foods for an affordable solo dinner or a casual meal with one other person. Ask for your soup extra spicy, along with a can of Taiwanese beer.
