Noodles are good at all times of the year, but there is something about truly getting in from the cold and warming up by having some hot, that just fills makes dealing with the cold of New York City worth it. NYC has become a hotbed for ramen and noodle soups in the last couple of years. With so many options, how can anyone choose? Well, we did it for ya, because we like you so much. Here are 10 of our favorite noodle shops in NYC.
When we’re in the mood for hot, hand-pulled noodles, we make sure we locate one of the best under the radar shops in Chinatown on Doyers Street. The name (Tasty Hand-Pulled Noodles) is about as basic as you can get. But do not let the absence of a creative or punny name stop you from entering this place. While other, more hip places are limited in terms of seating, this place seems to always have a spot for you. Even when they are more busy than usual, they have extra seats downstairs. You will have little to no cell service, but we welcome it. When the waitress brings that giant bowl of dumpling noodle soup, no e-mails, texts, or phone calls will distract us from our meal.
