    I love what they can do with heritage pork. amazing amazing things. the thick homemade noodles are a treat. And the cocktails are quite good as well. btw Chinese restaurant doesn't quite describe it.

    ExNE was named one of the "The Top 6 Places to Taste the New Asian Fusion" by Bon Appetit. In-house noodles, dumplings and bao blow away the competition, of which there is little. [Eater 38 Member]

    Small and intimate, this Cambridge spot offers made-from-scratch noodles and dumpling wrappers with a flavorful medley of modern Chinese flavors. Choose anything on the menu - you can't go wrong.

    The chef is meticulous, tasting everything before it hits the table. Fun to watch from the bar. Try the thick noodles w pork ragout, Jonah crab shumai and the deliciously bitter grapefruit-jasmine coc

    This hot spot combines Chinese cooking w/ New England ingredients thanks to Chinese-American chef Phillip Tang. What 2 order:braised lamb cannelloni w/ chili garlic sauce, Honeycrisp apple & mizuna.

    Interesting. $35 for 5 course tasting meal is cheap for what you get, but most dishes were too spicy for me. Tapas portions, don't go there if you feel for a big plate!

    Crispy pork belly on mantou bread? Don’t be intimidated by the menu—everything is delicious. Every noodle is made in house, and all ingredients are sourced from local producers.

    Smokey delight. The chef is absurdly talented. Not a single bad choice on the menu -- but he's known for the pork belly and confit.

    Spectacular menu with unconventional combinations of flavors. Cozy and friendly atmosphere. Portions are on the smaller side.

    So delicious! Do the 5 course tasting menu--so much food. Do whatever your waitress tells you; she's right!
