EV Grieve put up a post last week and asked everyone where they order their Chinese food from. It got a ton of comments and suggestions. I endorsed Sammy’s Noodle Shop in the West Village and a few people agreed with my suggestion. It made me realize that I haven’t been to Sammy’s in quite a while, so I thought I’d have my Sunday night dinner there.
About a half an hour before I was going to leave I got a call from my friends Goggla and Ed and they said they were in the neighborhood, so I invited them over for a beer or three and they decided to join me on my trek to Sammy's for Sunday dinner.
And so we trekked down 6th Avenue to...
Sammy's Noodle Shop! Some day I need to find out who Sammy is, but tonight I'm too hungry for investigative journalism. Let's go in and get something to eat!
Here's the front kitchen area where the takeout orders are being prepared.
Bags lined up to be filled with boxes of noodles and such.
In the front waiting area a woman teaches her infant to be a zombie texter.
And we're led into the main dining area.
This man just unlocked his noodle badge on Foursquare. So sad. #ChineseFood.
Okay time to look at the menu, by now we are all starvin's like Marvins.
We started out with some steamed dumplings that were delicious. We also got bacon wrapped shrimp, but my photo didn't turn out, so you'll just have to be like John Lennon and imagine that.
And now the main courses. I got the Sour Chili Pepper Noodle Soup. My favorite thing about ordering this is that the waitress will always warn you that this is "very spicy!" And it is, it really clears up your sinuses and it's very tasty as well.
Ed got the Won Ton Duck, as you can see the portions here are huge!
I don't know the official title of Goggla's dish, but it was pork and vegetables and very delicious. We all shared and it was a great Sunday dinner. Thanks to Goggla and Ed for hanging out on a nice and relaxing Sunday evening.
One last look out the door and we're gone. Goodnight everybody and see you tomorrow after dark.
Lex visited on Saturday and brought me a pumpkin. Here it is in MAD headquarters. I'll be featuring photos of it now and again as I decorate it for Halloween. Thanks, Lex!
