Best Noodle Shop for tonight

lilyjk Dec 31, 2006 06:00 PM

I'm looking to grab some noodles tonight downtown (below 14th street on the East side, preferably) around 7pm before I go party hopping. Any recomendations?

    OOh, I second Rai Rai Ken. Small counter space, but delicious, hearty soup. I love adding butter and corn to mine.

      Sobaya - in the LES one street over from St Marks.
      Fantastic Japanese noodles all made by hand.

          For Chinese Noodle
          -Great NY Noodletown - 28 Bowery at Pell Street (Chinatown) - you can't go wrong with their shrimp wonton noodle, and it is so cheap!

            Super Taste at 26 Eldridge. Get the spicy beef hand pulled noodles. They are excellent, and at $4 for an enormous bowl, a great bargain. They will fortify you before you begin your New Year's odyssey.
