Asian grocery stores in NY with a good variety of packaged ramens?

I am responding to my own post to spread my knowledge after finding what I wanted. Here is my new go-to Asian grocery store-ramen store list:

New York Mart -128 Mott Street
H Mart in k-town, 32 W 32 street - between 5th ave and Broadway.
Pearl River - Broadway bet Broome and Grande
New Chinatown Supermarket -109 East Broadway corner Pike and E Bdway
M2M Market on 55 3rd Ave near East 11th Street
Sunrise Market - 4 Stuyvesant Street bet 11 and 12 street
Kam Man Food - 200 Canal St. (My fav and has an area where they serve hot food with tons of really great housewares & dishes on the bottom floor)
Asia Market Corp - 71 1/2 Mulberry St (Malaysian foods and doesn't look like much from the front but its pretty good and very close to Kam Man Food)

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

As I posted just now in another thread.....Found the 4 pack of Prima Taste in Laksa LaMien and also Curry version. Both came in 4 packs. Both were 9.95 at two stores I went to. The selection at Kam Man Food on 200 Canal Street in Chinatown (NYC) was astounding. (I also found the 4 pack of just the Laksa LaMien at Asia Market Corp on Mulberry Street. Asia Market Corp also had Indomie noodles which are rated very high). I now have an awesome 'go to' place that also has a bar area that serves hot food! I spoke to the manager and he was awesome. Thanks ChowHounds!!!!

Hakkasan

Winly on Ave U.

I am just comparing the taste not the exact entrees.

I did have lobster in black bean sauce yesterday at Winly. 1 lobster was 14.95. It was incredible. I had a curried lobster in Las Vegas's Hakasan. It was good but I would not order it if I went again. The lobster in black bean sauce though at Winly was beyond fantastic. We also had roast pork pan fried noodles. Unreal. Did not have that dish in Las Vegas but in Brooklyn, it is my 'go to' dish because it is just that good. I think that dish is about 9 dollars. We also had chicken and corn soup for the table. Its always perfect. In Las Vegas we had a pumpkin soup. To me, it was good. Would order again but definitely not an asian soup. We had so much soup at the restaurant but still, we brought close to a quart home. It was about 6 dollars. Thus, I am not comparing my meal dish to dish but rather taste and price.

The Hakasan in Las Vegas wasnt bad...it just wasnt worth it. I had chinese food in Brooklyn today that was about 30 bucks for 3 people. It was a feast. It was far and above much more tasty than the food at Hakasan.

Interesting to see this post now.....I just had NYE dinner at Hakasan in Las Vegas. It was a 8 course meal and was part of a contest I won. The food was quite good. I never knew there was a NY location. Dinner without drinks for NYE was about 150 pp which I thought was not bad (considering it was NYE and it was a tourist trap). I will say, there wasnt much food even after 8 courses. I Each course was 2-3 bites max. The drinks were about 18-22 each so that was what must have blown the budget for my host. We had a private room and it was lovely. I cannot justify eating there though unless someone else is paying as I did not find it outstanding.

internet dating... eek! help with bars and cafes

Frankly I like a hotel bar for a blind date and once had a date at the W Hotel near Union Square. Comfy couches and you can get small plates. I also once went to Pierre Lotti on Irving Place and liked that for a date. They have 2 other locations. http://www.pierrelotiwinebar.com/unio... Bar Jamon is also in that area and might be a fun place for a date.

I used to go when I was married in the early 2000s and it was soooo good. I must get on that mailing list.
