NY Noodletown Problem

Foodboy | Jul 17, 2006 10:07 AM

After our usual won ton & noodle soup, my friend and I decided to split an order of clams with black bean sauce and Chinese vegatables with oyster sauce. The vegetables were fine, but the clams were a huge disappointment. They tasted old, fishy, and just plain bad. We sent them back and there was no argument from the waiter; the clams were taken off the bill. The clams tasted like they had been sitting around for a long time - not fresh at all. It was surprising to me since this was the first time I've experienced anything like that at NY Noodletown. I'm sure it was a fluke, but I probably won't be ordering clams there for a while. We should have had the soft shell crabs!
