Does anyone know of a restaurant in Chinatown that serves Shanghai Noodles at lunch? I haven't been able to find one yet. An address would be helpful if you have a suggestion.
I'm not sure if it's the same thing (I don't recall having seen "Shanghai Noodles" specifically on a menu in Chinatown) but King Fung's Garden on Kneeland makes something delicious they call "Shanghai Chow Mein" - long very thick chewy noodles fried, tossed in a flavorful brown sauce with pork and cabbage - does that sound like what you're looking for?
They're at the corner of Hudson and Kneeland - I think the Shanghai Chow Mein will run you less than $5 for an enormous portion - that plus a wedge or two of scallion pie is one of my favorite meals in Chinatown.
Other places that serve Shanghai noodles -- New Shanghai (haven't tried, been eating too much rice cakes instead) but it's a very good Shanghainese restaurant overall and Wing's Kitchen (their version's good, but haven't had in a while).
