Hells Kitchen Lunch, Wednesday
- chairbc Aug 17, 2010 07:23 PM
as out-of-towners staying on 50th between 8th and 9th, we're asking for Hound rec's for Chinese food for lunch in Clinton/Hell's Kitchen. Dim Sum if possible--but, really, we're thinking of noodles and dumplings and so-on. many thanks in advance.
there's a Mee Noodle on 9th and 53rd. it's not much more than a typical Chinese sit down/take out place, but there food is quite good. i especially like their pan fried pork dumplings over ramen. if you're open to other ideas, there are quite a few Indian and Thai restaurants nearby. you're also very close to Baan, a slightly Americanized Korean place with very good dishes. it's one of the nicer looking places nearby to you, but it's often DEAD during lunch. it's a large space and i've never seen it close to full.

went back again yesterday (Friday) for onion cakes & steamed meat dumplings. again, v.v. good, just what we needed for fuel before and afternoon of tourist-museuming...wish the cakes had had more scallion; but really liked the gingeriness (two nonce creations in one sentence: not a personal record, but still...) of the dumplings.
