New Chao Chow

I've been going to this for as long as I can remember, and it's still tops in terms of food. It's not a place for atmosphere, but it has a quaint charm about it that makes it even more enjoyable to eat at it. Try the noodles with, what I will contend, the most flavorful broth in the City.

I will agree whole heartedly with john fleming's review, this place is outstanding. I have been coming here since i was 19 and living in the neighborhood on very little scratch. Nine years later i still come back at least once a month. The atmosphere is limited, but adds to the sense of adventure. Don't miss the won ton soup, singapore style chow mai fun, spicy squid with black bean sauce, pork chop with onion, and the amazing duck. google "new chao chow" for the village voice's 2003 review and 2004 'choicest chiu chow' award.

Three Chopstick Digits - The three chopstick digits of its door number (111 Mott Street) make the New Chao Chow's address an easy one to remember. Inside I have dined a dozen times with a friend. Our happy ghosts are still there, white spectres forming in the steam of boiling rice. In the course of 1996, I spent four summer months holed up in old New York. Living on an absurdly small fraction of US dollars per day, I wandered frequently in to Chinatown from a hot box basement dungeon in which I was staying on nearby Clinton Street (Avenue B). The New Chao Chow was one of the places I went to eat at least once a week - usually selecting one of its "on rice" dishes (beef with Chinese broccoli for example). And each time, the waiters would supply a pot of either hot or cold tea. Sit and eat. Master chop sticks. Feel this is the heart of something that you will never forget. I got into delicious wan ton soup there too. The New Chao Chow stands out for being the kind of mythical low-profile, incredibly cheap and excellent-quality place that you like to think exists in all the cities that you might ever have called home. The dishes back then were as little at 3 bucks 25 cents. I?d call it a very favourite place.
