i ordered two apps to go this afternoon, def an off hour as i was the only one in there --> the dan dan noodles and cold five spice beef. i ate it an hour later and i must say the dan dan noodles were even better that way than fresh in the restaurant. very nicely mellowed spice. the cilantro on top of the thin cold strips of beef really added a suprising pervasive herbal flavor to this cold dish (which i had never ordered before).
this is the chelsea GS on the corner of 24th st and 9th ave. while i waited the staff was laughing, de-stringing the green beans for dinner and playing with the karaoke machine --- it was a fun silly sight. seems like GC is as good as ever!
