I love hand-pulled noodles. In fact, one of my favorite NYC restaurants is Tasty Hand-Pulled Noodles at 1 Doyers Street. So when I heard Hung Ry was opening up, a restaurant specializing in upscale hand-pulled noodle dishes, I was more than excited. I stopped in this past Sunday to get my noodle on. (Yes, I chose noodles over Halloween parties.)
The space is great, with a bar in the back by an open kitchen, and candle-lit tables up front, for your noodle consumption. The decor is the exact opposite of what you would find in Chinatown- existent.
An appetizer of frog legs ($5.50) with celery root walnut salad was delicious. Beautifully cooked frogs legs, deliciously seasoned, and perfectly executed, it made me think that frog legs is definitely an underused meat.
My bowl of mutton sausage, belly, and salted black cabbage ($14) was fabulous. With perfectly cooked noodles made to order, and a great broth that had a wonderful smokiness to it, my noodle soup craving was more than satisfied.
To end, a Concord grape sorbet was the pitch-perfect palate cleanser to a delectable meal.
