Sho Nuff Noodles

By Marcus Samuelsson |

These noodles were one of the first Streetbird dishes I ever tested. I debuted them at the Lower East Side pop-up back in February, and then added them to the menu as soon as the Rotisserie officially opened up in Harlem. They’re a little bit sweet, spicy, tangy, and super addicting. The name was inspired by a character in the 1980’s martial arts comedy The Last Dragon.
