Talk about delicious and authentic- The Tang is the spot to be for all your noodley needs.
The Tang stepped on the East Village culinary scene in 2016 and since then has been making some serious waves in the Chinese food world of Lower Manhattan. What once was considered a specialty of Canal Street has expanded it’s borders into other neighborhoods- you can now easily find authentic style dishes pretty much anywhere below 14th Street.
At The Tang, you can expect a mix of comfort and contemporary dishes. The menu consists of small plates like Sweet Pumpkin Rice Cakes, Fried Pork Buns, and Braised Pork Ear Slices in Chili Oil and later an extensive choice of noodles featuring everything from braised pork belly to oxtail.
The restaurant doesn’t take reservations so if you’re planning a special night-especially on the weekend- it might be prudent to get over there early to get your name on the waiting list and have a drink while you wait. Bottles and glasses of specialty Sake are a staple on their drink menu.
