Just the other day I was telling my friend Sharon that if she likes checking out Chinatown dives, she should try Sheng Wang. Then I stopped by Sheng Wang this weekend, and much to my surprise, they really fixed it up. It’s way brighter and cleaner looking now, so if you were hesitant about sampling their amazing hand-pulled noodles before because the place looked a little sketchy, you might want to give it another try. That’s the outrageously good Fujianese dumpling soup, and now they’re serving it with a fried egg on top! And oh yeah, it’s about $4.50.
I always say this kind of thing, but I love how they use emptied out Sriracha sauce bottles for serving vinegar, soy sauce, etc.
And I know this is a little out of left field, but I almost can’t order Chinese food without getting an orange soda. Weird, right? Some places serve Fanta, and some Sunkist. Either is fine with me. I wonder how I got into that habit, because I really don’t drink soda very often at all.
