Our 10 Best Noodles, Manhattan Edition
Khao soi are northern Thai noodles that feature the same egg noodles in two guises: boiled and curried in the bottom of the bowl, fried and crunchy on the top.
Tasty, nutritious, wildly variable, and unusually cheap, noodles have long since replaced bread as the world's staff of life. Our noodle landscape in New York is awesomer than it's ever been before, and we can choose from the pasta of dozens of nationalities, made from a wealth of ingredients--including wheat, rice, sweet-potato starch, mung beans, chestnut flour, buckwheat, devil's tongue starch, whole wheat, and corn.
Step right inside for some juicy hand-pulled noodles. Good place, but didn't quite make the cut.
So as to not become overwhelmed by the task, we've decided to do this by boroughs, and Manhattan was the first to come to mind because of the diversity of its dining opportunities--and also since Fork in the Road is headquartered here.
We guarantee every noodle we mention meets our very high deliciousness standards; nevertheless, you may be prone to disagree with our selection, or want to add a favorite place of your own. Please do it in the comments section and we'll transfer the results to our Readers' Suggestions page.
