Mee Noodle Midtown

[CLOSED at this location]

Nobody is claiming there is any difference between this place and any of the other 4,000 lunchtime Chinese restaurants in midtown, but if you want abrupt service, ornery cashiers and decent, fast lunch specials, this is your noodle palace. Fans say the #42 is very tender and the L5 is well worth the price. Detractors point to the #143 as a serious health risk and say the #82 tastes a bit of cat. [MF]
