Chinatown Express is quickly becoming my favorite lunch spot in DC. They make the most amazing fresh noodles and steamed pork buns. My great love for old school noodle shops may be a nostalgic throwback to my Poppy taking us out for lunch at noddle shops in Chinatown Philadelphia. I just love watching people making the fresh noodles and buns in the front window.
We only ever order two things and they are easy to remember because they are the top two things on their Lunch Special Menu: Fresh Noodle Soup and Steamed Pork Buns. We get the fresh noodle soup with duck and it is one of the 40 Dishes Every Washingtonian Must Try 2013. It is on this list for a reason. It is totally delicious. The duck has crispy skin and the broth is so rich from the delicious duck.
