Sheng Wang Restaurant Review

: Step down into subterranean Sheng Wang, a salt-of-the-earth spot that serves up brothy bowls of homemade noodles: thick spaghetti-like wheat noodles and broader peeled noodles. Both withstand the near-boiling soup that arrives at your Formica table. Pork bone soup, the bones filled with unctuous marrow, is a delight. Beef broth soup will make you regular at this Chinatown restaurant. Sheng Wang also offers decent fried and steamed pork-stuffed dumplings, and the adventurous might opt for a pig intestine starter.
