NY NOODLETOWN...report!

Hello...I posted my inquiry about this place on the outer bourough board by mistake, but want to put my comments here where they belong...went tonight with my husband and shared a table with 2 nice out of towners. My husband and I weren't super hungry so we ordered just 2 things, but they were excellent. We got the lomein with ginger and scallions, and we got the salt baked shrimp.

Lomein was hong kong style very thin noodles, no grease whatsoever, and super fresh. Had this same stlye lomein at Sweet and tart and it just laid there with a very bad aftertaste flavor--yuk)...The shrimp were so good, and a nice guy eating at another table gave us a tip to ask for ginger sauce to kinda dip them into, and this was great, also. Shrimp were sized big, and perfectly deveined, and there were 9 of them for $12 which seemed very fair. The strangers at our table who we made fast friends with ordered the salt baked soft shell crabs, and said they tasted fabulous. They also ordered the flowering chives with duck which they also liked alot. Everything looked real fresh.

We saw alot of chinese locals coming in and getting duck to go. The ambience of the place reminded me of the now deceased Sunlokkee on mott st (the one in flushing is lousy)..but the waiters were alot more nice and friendly, and the utensils alot more clean.

Can't wait to go back...think we'll try the shrimp in black pepper, chives and scallops, and something with black bean sauce to see if they make it the REAL way...and I would like to try the shrimp dumplings or wontons in soup..anyone know if these have whole shrimp or crushed up shrimp inside?

Glad we finally went....now if anyone can tell us an equal to this place in Flushing, (as we are queens folks), we would be most grateful!
