Part of Spicy Village's appeal—besides its excellent noodles and super-low prices—is its setting: servers are warm and friendly, and within such a small space that gets packed so quickly, that helps create a fun, convivial atmosphere. It's a welcoming place to spend a cold winter night.
Follow Mission Chinese Food chef-prodigy Danny Bowien to Spicy Village and he’ll insist, stubbornly, on getting the whole menu, from the pork pancakes to the hand-pulled noodles to the trays of braised and fried chicken served with whole dried chile peppers and spices. On the walk back to Orchard Street, he’ll consider those flavors, and by the time he’s on the line again, this handsome Nowness video shows, he’s figured out how he’s going to use what he just tasted to try making something new. “We honestly, totally knocked off a few of their dishes because they’re so delicious,” he says.
