Tag Archives: Little Tong Noodle Shop

Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

This year many restaurants opened specializing in mixian noodle soups. These rice noodles  from the Yunnan region of China were not as common as say udon or ramen. But for some reason, this was the year of the mixian.

I am always intrigued by new noodles and I visited a few of the spots, including Yuan, a new location of Deng Ji, and Just for Fen. They were all good but none of them really stood out in my mind from other similar noodle soups I’ve slurped.

That is until I ate at Little Tong Noodle Soup. By far, this corner East Village spot got the most buzz and the most praise for bringing this specialty to the city.

It makes sense that Little Tong would be the one on everyone’s lips since the chef behind it is Simone Tong, a Chinese chef who worked for Wylie Dufresene at wd-50 and Alder. But never mind the buzz and the resumé, these noodles were great.
