Everywhere You Need to Eat in NYC Right Now

The gist: Focusing on Singaporean cuisine, Native Noodles was initially born out of a successful 2019 run as a vendor at the Queens Night Market. A signature laksa dish by founder and Singapore native, Amy Pryke, helped make it a hit, and her plans to open a Washington Heights storefront in 2020 were delayed to early last year because of the pandemic. Operating in partnership with executive chef Joseph Medina (co-owner of Hawaiian restaurant, Makana), the casual uptown eatery offers indoor seating for 12 and an outdoor table for four on a first come, first served basis. A new takeout- and delivery- only outpost in Long Island City recently launched, and starting this year, the uptown location is open seven days a week.
The food: Expect the traditional influences of Chinese, Indian, Malay, and other flavors showcased through dishes like the Signature Laksa (a soup version is also now available) with a slow-cooked coconut shrimp-based curry and thick rice noodles; wok-fried thin rice noodles with mixed vegetables and shredded egg; and the Roti John Sandwich Omelette, (an item not easily found in NYC) with ground beef, caramelized onions, and spicy ketchup on a toasted hero. Small bites include Chili Crab Buns, Popcorn Chicken, Crispy Mashed Potato Patties, and more. Mains are Chili Crab Pasta with egg drop sauce and linguine; Satay Peanut Noodles; Honey-Roasted Pork with rice; Soy Ginger Cold Noodles, and more. Desserts include Kaya Butter Toast, fluffy Waffles, and Mango Pudding.
