Pig Heaven alternative

Spare Ribs at Nancy Lee's Pig Heaven are the best on the upper east side. Whose are second best? Need an alternative in case they don't reopen. Please help!

  1. Try the honey glazed spare ribs at Land of Plenty.

    1. I crave ribs very often and know what you mean about Nancy's ribs-the best! For alternatives I find Wok 88's a decent choice for Chinese style ribs-not as meaty as Nancy's but decent. Along the lines of Asian type ribs, Vietnaam (Former Saigon Grill) on 88th and 2nd has great Vietnamese style ribs. Why they spell Vietnaam w 2 "A's" is beyond me.

        ...because it is a transliteration? (just guessing)
