Mama’s Noodle House
The two chefs at Mama’s Noodle House will greet you at the door and ask what you want to order—grab a paper menu and just start pointing. If you’re getting just one thing at this Bensonhurst favorite, let it be the No. 5 Hot and Spicy Wontons. Big, juicy balls of pork and shrimp in translucent wrappers are smothered in a sichuan peppercorn sauce that will make your lips buzz. If you have a little more room to eat, get the hot pot style fish or a noodle soup. You can’t eat inside, but there’s a fine patch of sidewalk where you can set up shop with your food.
