Last night we paid a visit to the just opened Bao Noodles (391 Second Avenue, near 23rd St). It was very much a first week open experience -- inexperienced server, no liquor license yet, appetizer arrived afterour entrees, etc. But that's all to be expected. We had sugarcane shrimp, spicy beef stew and rice noodle soup, and crispy whole snapper with tamarind sauce. Overall, Bao Noodles is a great addition to the neighborhood, and we looking forwarding to visiting again in a few weeks to explore the menu further.
