A short stroll from Soho, Chinatown is home to this cozy Chairman Mao–themed noodle and dumpling house. Szechuan cuisine is served up hot and spicy in dishes like the chili-oil-slick spicy beef noodle soup and dan-dan noodles with preserved vegetables. Diners cut the heat with lotus root and seaweed salad and a glass of iced oolong tea. Although it's not a place to sit and stay for a while—the tiny, utilitarian tables weren't designed for lingering—the Communist-era kitscherie and food make it popular spot.
Baozi Inn's baps have developed a following as one of Soho's cheapest and best street-food options. The tasty egg-and-spinach- or pork-filled buns are ready to go fast.
