Nonne have their minestrone, nanas have their chicken noodle soup, but for the best in comfort food Chinese-style, there’s nothing better than these rice noodles in soup. The broth is prepared daily and whether you choose sour or spicy, or even the pig intestine and oxtail version, it tastes like liquid gold. Consuming this creation is great fun too, with a tray of vegetables and choice of protein—perhaps Chinese potted meats or flaky shrimp cake? Then, drop those bouncy rice noodles into the bubbling pot and wait for the magic to unfold. Regulars may round out this feast with such sumptuous sides as steamed pork buns, a cucumber salad or fluffy pumpkin pancakes. The gleaming space is small but doesn't accept reservations (yet!), so expect a wait.
