Went back to Cendrillon, 45 Mercer betw. Broome and Grand and had the softshell crab entree again (see link) this time it was a bit too heavily fried and greasy but still wonderfully flavorful.
But I did try the DUCK that people have raved about and it was VERY good... cooked in a chinese style, and slice and presented that way, too. Practically a whole duck, I think, on a bed of the nicest (read: very tender, not so slippery) 1/4" wide cellophane noodles that had been tossed with a garlicky chinese stir-fry (mung bean sprouts and other veggies). Also came with 2 condiments: mango chutney (fresh) and tomatillo sauce--very hot but literally bursting with flavor.
Next time you're in the nabe, duck out of the madness that is SoHo and check this place out.
