Pan-Asian noodle and dim sum cafe with a large vegetarian section

The menu offers a large number of vegetarian dishes, from wonton soup to glass noodle dishes and stir-fry wide rice noodle plates. There are also a couple of veg. dim sum options.

Some of the noodles (such as the wonton noodles) are made with egg, but the kitchen will put wide or thin rice noodles as substitutes in any dish.

Most veg. dishes cost $5-7.

This is a slightly grimy, cheap but cool, Asian café with some unusual vegan offerings.

First, they don’t label their vegan dishes, so make sure to ask questions (note, in particular, that their wonton noodle is made with egg, so stick with rice noodles if you’re vegan).

I’ve tried a number of their dishes and it’s hit or miss. Their veg. appetizers are all pretty boring, with the exception of the excellent kimchi dumplings---these are flavorful, spicy and unusual. I don’t even like kimchi that much.

The lad na and spicy mee yok (both $7 with tofu) are middling. The lad na is bland and the spicy mee yok is overpowering and oily.

On the other hand, the mild mee hange is excellent: Chinese broccoli, noodles, sesame oil and tofu. Add chili oil as per your taste. It’s an elegantly simple and tasty dish.

One consistent issue: they don’t fry their tofu here. They just serve it in big, barely cooked white cubes that don’t add appeal to any dish and don’t taste that great, either. Make sure to have them cook their tofu longer, or even fry it.

Portion sizes are large here. Except to take home leftovers, even though each dish costs only $7 or so. The service is fast and attentive.

Come to York Street Noodle for the kimchi dumplings and maybe a noodle dish. Skip the rest.
