Chinatownâ€™s eastern streets have filled with Fujianese immigrants in recent decades, turning the area into a Little Fu Zhou. And in the heart of this neighborhood, youâ€™ll find Shu Jiao Fu Zhou Cuisine, a rickety dive awash in harsh fluorescent glare. A handful of noodle soups swim with everything from fish balls to beef tendon, and pork-packed dumplings here are sold by the half-dozen to diners â€” and by the frozen 50 to in-the-know shoppers. But the dish youâ€™ll see on most tables, and the one that makes Shu Jiao our favorite Fujian spot, is the platter of long flat noodles in thick, sticky peanut-butter sauce. Speckled with just a few scallions, drizzled with soy sauce, and lightly redolent of the oil theyâ€™re sautĂ©ed in, theyâ€™re served on a Styrofoam plate and cost just $2, which makes this gem one to keep in your back pocket for a rainy, between-paychecks day.
