  1. Glad you found the place. The beef noodle soup is pretty good.

    Hui Xiang is fennel.

    1. I've been a regular for years. See if they have the Pork & Fennel dumplings frozen. If so, just toss them into rapidly boiling water for 10 minutes. I do this with the pork & chive dumplings which she always has frozen (50 for $11). When I visit, I have the pork & chive fried dumplings which are always immediately available. I usually order 8 for $2.50. An incredible bargain lunch.

      1. I saw the article in Time Out NY on the Best Food Neighborhoods in New York featuring Lao Bei Fang and decided to go check it out with my family. We had a triple order of dumplings and four different soups with hand pulled noodles. Simple, delicious, super fresh and wow...delicious! The place is super small with table seating for 8 and counter space for 6 more people. This little noodle shop is seriously lacking in ambience but it's worth the trip for the taste of the freshly pulled noodles made before your eyes.
