A takeout counter next to the Manhattan Bridge specializing in super-fresh hand-pulled noodles and spicy lamb dishes. The Flushing import features dishes from the Shaanxi province in Central China, such as spicy lamb noodles with cumin and the savory cumin lamb burger (Anthony Bordain’s favorite).
88 East Brodway, near Forsyth
At this spartan, subterranean spot, handmade wheat noodles are served with a choice of 20 or so toppings (chopped pork bones, duck, ox tail, etc). For English only speakers, ordering here is a bit of a challenge. Some think the fish ball soup is unrivaled.

Japanese-born chef Yoshihito Kida has opened a tiny restaurant, just west of Allen Street, serving extremely fresh, authentic soba. There are only three tables and an 8-seat bar in this handsomely designed space. Behind the bar, you’ll be able to watch as your noodles are made on the spot. The menu offers detailed explanations of cold and hot varieties of soba, as well as the health benefits of each. There are also some nice appetizers and side dishes, including miso coleslaw and a daikon salad. Service is gracious and friendly.
