Sam's Noodle Shop & Grill

411 3RD Ave @ 29th Street, 212-213-2288


Cost per person: $16
"YGWYPF" factor: 8/10 (you get what you pay for)

Right beside Vatan, this is a somewhat 'upscale' Chinese takeout-eatin place at the corner of 29th and 3rd. Food is good, decor is simple. Service is good. My flat mate suggested I stay away from the soups, based on her previous experience, so I went for "H11. Seafood Szechuan Style (Very Spicy) Large shrimp, scallops & squids with Chinese broccoli cooked in Szechuan black pepper sauce" - and definitely liked it. The scallops are huge! My flat mate went for a made-to-order of boiled scallops and broccoli, with garlic sauce on the side. For starters, we went for the full-fat 61. Scallion Pancake and 55. Mixed Dumplings (Shrimp, Veg., Seafood, Meat, 2 Dumplings of Each Kind) - which were all wonderful, though the dumplings could have had a thinner wrap.
