Village Voice's Description

The food at this small café comes from the Chinese region of Henan, right on the Yellow River, regarded as the country’s cradle of modern capitalism. The menu is organized around its wonderful hui mei – broad homemade wheat noodles something like fettuccine, which can be served in soups or with various stews poured over them. Highly recommended is the hui mei with spicy brisket sauce, which might almost remind you of a European stew. The soups are based on lamb or beef broths that are nearly opaque and dotted with small red dates called jujubes for a slight sweetness. The most shareable dish is “spicy big tray chicken,” a humongous pile of poultry enriched with mouth-numbing Sichuan peppercorns.

    Big tray chicken. Make sure you ask them to add hand-pulled noodles to it.

    Props for the big tray of chicken (大盘鸡) and pancake with pork (肉夹馍)Seriously the MOST authentic Chinese hole-in-the-wall gem. The dishes are similar to Xi'an, but only more spicy and well-flavored.

    Spicy Village tells it like it is with their Spicy Big Tray Chicken: an enormous platter of chicken with mouth numbing Sichuan peppercorns (share it if you want to spare some taste buds).

    Try the pork pancake, which holds "a decent helping of minced pork that is doused liberally with hoisin sauce and topped with cilantro." Don't forget to add chili oil!
