I know the restaurant's been around, and that Jonathon Gold gave its beef roll a pretty great review awhile back.
But I just have to say that after going twice in a month, I'm still craving the beef roll at 101 Noodle Express, on Valley near New, across from the 168 Market.
At $6, the beef roll is practically a meal for two. It's a fried pancake sort of like an onion pancake, with warm shredded braised beef, Chinese pickled greens, and cilantro all rolled up into a big burrito-esque roll. The crunchy outside, soft warm meat, and crispy greens with some sweet duck sauce (like they use for Peking duck) combine very familiar flavors in a brand new way that leaves my tastebuds wanting more.
There are also about a dozen different kinds of dumplings, but be forewarned that they're Shandong style and have very thick homemade skins. There's also a large number of soups and noodles. I'm far from having tried all of them, but so far I like the lamb soup but do not care for their version of beef noodle soup.
