In 1968, Chef Shorty Tang introduced cold sesame noodles (above)—a dish that went on to become legend in New York food circles—at his East Broadway restaurant, Hwa Yuan. And now his son, Chef Chen Lieh Tang has revived his family's famous legacy in the same location as the iconic original. The main floor of the three level space features a window into the spotless kitchen, where you can see your authentic Szechuan dishes being prepared. The menu is filled with favorites such as moo shu pork, Shanghai-style soup dumplings, and crispy Beijing duck, plus a raw bar, and a few surprise American classics like Caesar salad and baby back ribs with an Asian-inspired twist.
Location: 42 E. Broadway, NYC.
