Cheap Eats: Roy’s Cheesesteaks

Recreating iconic regional specialties is a tricky (and ballsy) task. You’d better be on your game because scrutiny from natives and fanatics is inevitable.

Mouthful: Chinese noodles

FRANK MA SOUTH: The renowned Frank Ma resurfaced as a consultant at the newly opened “Frank Ma South” after leaving his post at Frank Ma’s. Despite a slightly rocky start (he shares the space with another restaurant and isn’t on site on Tuesdays), his “special sauce noodle bowl” is as good as ever and some of the best comfort food around. A big bowl of fat white noodles are topped with a sweetish mixture made from black-bean and hoisin sauces, ground pork, dried bean curd and green onions. 2088 Briarcliff Road. 404-320-7373.

    It is actually a noodle dish I had in SF. We sometimes have to use other images of mine when lighting conditions are not optimal at certain locations or I can’t take a pic without being noticed. However, the noodles I mentioned at Ming’s are almost exactly the same except the have pork. They rule.
