Long waits and noisy chatter aside, the food is fast, filling and won't drain your wallet. – The Scene
Although Far East Cafe has a new look, some things never change: the place is still always packed; Sammy, the owner, still bustles around, shouting across the restaurant; and more importantly, the cuisine is still excellent.
Far East is known for its "gnow naum" (beef brisket and tendon), which comes with the sauce still boiling. The gnow naum is surprisingly tender so you don't end up with a sore jaw from gnawing. Try the won ton noodles, where the won ton is packed with shrimp, pork, mushrooms and bamboo shoots. You'll find a generous amount of won ton bobbing among the tasty thick noodles. Best of all, this food comes cheap. The lunch special includes soup, fried or steamed rice, chicken chow mein, pot stickers and one entree--all for less than $5.
