  1. 9 chatham does a good version.

      1. Shanghai Cafe at 100 Mott (Squid with Salt Pepper)
        Big Wong King at 66 Mott (Salt and Peppered Squid)
        Yogee Noodle at 85 Chrystie (Salt and Pepper Baked Squid)
        Moon House at 67 Bayard (Squid with Pepper Salt)
        OK 218 at 218/220 Grand (Squid with Salt and Pepper)


        Yummy Noodle at 44 Bowery (Salt Baked Calamari)
        Amazing 66 at 66 Mott (Fresh Squid with Chili and Spiced Salt)
        Shanghai Garden at 14A Elizabeth (Salt Baked Squid with Hot Pepper)

        Sorry have not tried them all! Amazing 66's was actually deep fried squid.

          My personal favorite has got to Chanoodle's(79 Mulberry street) version (salted baked squid) don't worry there are peppers. NY Noodletown's version is also sometimes okay, but is also sometime a little goopy (they dont always cook it long enough)

        2. Congee Bowery also has it. (and I'm assuming, Congee VIllage)

            Congee Bowery's version is Americanized and cannot even compare to an authentic version

              I had an order of if from JM Family noodle today (19 Henry street) but in all fairness i cant reccoment it (WAY too gooey and flabby)

                JM Family is not good, its like a very bad version of Great NY Noodletown...disappointing as it got some good reviews and has been around forever

                  I like JM Family. It's a solid Cantonese place. Their roast pork/soy sauce chicken is good, very nice roast pork, none of the day glo colored pork they have in many places.

                    The Chow Chao Chow Mai Fun's pretty good too.
