With the temporary [?] closure of SAIGON GRILL I have sought refuge at WU LIANG YE [215 86th UES].
I have had only the LUNCH specials which are $5-6.95 I think.
Includes a HOT AND SOUR SOUP or spring roll.
Hell,the portions are especially generous indeed and carry quite a Sichuan peppercorn kick so if you like some spice and great flavor it's a great experience.
L4 - sliced chicken with spicy garlic sauce is always great.
Service is amazing as well.
BTW,the Rockefeller branch has only take-out LUNCH menu - I have had lunch there with more or less the same items and it comes out about twice as expensive though I think still very good value so this speaks very well for the UES place.
