Niu Noodle House Coupons and Deals
As distinct as every neighborhood is in New York, it's always fun when their borders get blurred a little bit, and we don't mean just by coming up with random new names (we're looking at you Bedwick). Niu Noodle House on Greenwich Avenue is bringing some of the best of Chinatown eats to the hollowed grounds of the West Village, giving steadfast Villagers the chance to venture outside of the norm without going past Washington Square. When it comes to the decor, "we really wanted to keep everything local feeling," says Niu's manager Richard. The eclectic dining room is dedicated too all things Greenwich Village, with life-size photos of local architecture covering the walls, and a faux subway stop leading down to the restrooms. But while the interior feels like a scene from "Manhattan," the menu is all Chinatown: dim sum crafted in-house, seven types of ramen, including buckwheat and spinach, and, in an ode to all things beef (NiU means cow in Chinese), the Beef Trifecta, which is a combination of flank steak, short ribs and beef shank served in a hearty broth with fresh ramen. We cleansed our palate with a traditional bubble tea and a sweet shaved ice and couldn't help but appreciate how easily the two neighborhoods complimented each other. Menu Highlights: Pork Soup Dumplings, $5.50 Flank Steak Spring Roll, $5 Beef Trifecta, $14 Hours: Sunday - Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday & Saturday, noon to midnight
The first slurp of an extraordinary broth can transport you to a magical place, but at Niu Noodle House, there’s no mistaking you are still in the West Village, thanks to enormous photographs—taken by the restaurant’s owner—of the Washington Square arches and subway station. After admiring the adorable bull chopstick holders, place a generous scoop of sinfully salty, sweet, and fatty duck into crispy lettuce for a crunch-tastic starter. In the award-winning chicken dumplings, duck’s leaner cousin is improbably made just as flavorful thanks to ginger, scallion, and a quick pan-fry to add a golden shimmer. You’ll be tempted to stuff yourself with more fowl, but considering that “niu” is Chinese for cow, you can’t leave without an order of beef noodle soup. Save yourself the trouble of deciding which cut by ordering the Beef Trifecta—flank steak, short ribs, and beef shank served with fresh ramen noodles in a rich and balanced beef broth that’s lovingly made from scratch.
