Since my favorite Cantonese noodle place in Chinatown seemed to tweak its name every couple years without much change inside the restaurant, I figured the crude hand made change on the awning from Wing Huang to Hing Huang was another insignificant event. But it looks different this time. Looking at the Hing Huang menu, it's vastly different, with noodles now being a very small part of the menu. And brand new is the presence of dumplings on the menu, particularly chicken dumplings. Indeed I don't recall seeing chicken dumplings at any restaurant in Chinatown, so naturally that's what I ordered. The chicken dumplings were OK, but I'm wondering if they might have been cooked from frozen and packaged. Meanwhile, I'm afraid to try the noodle soup as I fear that the superior version served for so many years might not be there any more, so maybe one of you can determine that for me. Hing Huang is at 111 Lafayette, just south of Canal.
