There's a new kid on the block in Chinatown perfect for food nerds and ramen-obsessed alike. China King opened its doors about two weeks ago in the former Rainbow Cafe location. The menu is extensive, full of Chinese classics (think fried rice, steamed dumplings, scallion pancakes) and some other dishes I wasn't expecting like fish head hot pot, pork intestines and a list of about 15 different noodle soups.
I went with the larger version of my favorite classic Chinese food soup -- hot and sour noodle soup. It was packed to the brim with noodles, tofu, pork and bamboo shoots. For $6.50 China King offers a more-than-generous portion, which makes this a great cheap lunch for anyone who works downtown. I split this soup with someone else, and we still couldn't finish it. Beef brisket noodle soup is next on my list to try.
