Wow, we passed so many times in front of The Great New York Noodle Town without even looking at their menu and simply discarding the place, preferring the more popular spots in Chinatown. Well, it was until we were invited to the Flatiron Food Tour from Like A Local Tours, where we talked about food with our guide, Robert.

This a small place, not fancy at all and you may eat at a table with strangers. They have a fairly large menu, made of dishes not only composed of noodles, contrary to what the name suggest, but where noodle dishes have a large part. 

We decided to start with the vegetable dumplings soup that, for $4.95 was a bargain.

There were eight large veggie dumplings that were very good, the shell being thin and not doughey, and the feeling tasty. 

We then had chicken pan fried noodles with mixed vegetables.

It was a large plate and it definitely reminded me of the dish I had several times when traveling to Hong Kong, whether it was the thin noodles or the sauce that smothered them. It is for sure a dish I recommend. 

We ended up paying $21 for lots of tasty food: quite a good deal. If you like Chinese food and want some cheap delicious food, you should try The Great New York Noodletown. But if you go, go early enough to get a table. That's what I will do next time I go there!
