Roast Pork and Preserved Egg Porridge from Great NY Noodletown (28 1/2 Bowery, 212-349-0923)
Of course I could write about the porridge ($3.75). But I think the best thing about this dining experience is probably what I overheard at a nearby table.
Guy to friends: “I really like this girl. And if you guys make her sad, I will hit you.”
