Very Fresh Noodles LLC
Very Fresh Noodles, a recently reopened Chelsea Market hangout that shows off the starchy and soupy traditions of Taiwan, Sichuan province, Western China, and elsewhere. After you reach out to push the bell — not an unsurprising hospitality touch in the COVID-19 era — a masked worker appears and takes your order on an iPad. A few minutes later, someone places your takeout containers on a table. From there, you ferry your fat Shaanxi-style biang biang home, or you take advantage of the outdoor seating and slurp down everything on the spot. Either way, you’re experiencing what remains one of the city’s top noodle shops, even if the crowds haven’t returned. - Ryan Sutton/Eater NY.
