You don’t need to step inside this scruffy noodle shop—underneath the Manhattan Bridge overpass—to know if it’s your kind of place. If you’re put off, rather than intrigued, by duck carcasses hanging in the window or the taped-up paper menu offering Congee with Pork Blood ($4) and Fish Stomach & Seafood Soup ($9), you’ll head elsewhere. If you do enter, and take a table in the dining room with its mirrored walls, you’ll get exactly what you’d expect: Cheap, no-frills food, and lots of it. The signature dishes here are the huge bowls of thin, salty broth bobbing with egg or rice noodles; you can choose to have yours with (fatty) pork dumplings, slices of (fattier) roast duck, or (even fattier) spare ribs. Hong Kong style boiled noodles—served on a plate rather than in a bowl—aren’t much different, except that they come doused with sticky-sweet soy or plum sauce rather than broth. A cold beer would be a welcome accompaniment to all the starch, fat, and salt, but the lack of a liquor license means you’ll have to content yourself with a can of Coke (no ice, glass only upon request).
