Crispy Scallion Pancake Sandwiches in NYC || Fork Yeah: Little Tong

Specializing in Yunnan-style noodle soup, Little Tong Noodle Shop led the charge in New York City’s recent rice-noodle wave. One night after a long service, chef/owner Simone Tong accidentally stumbled on her latest creation, the JB Melt, while making a family meal for her staff. Grabbing scallion pancakes, she began to serve her staff taco-like sandwiches filled with her six-hour braised beef shank and gooey melted cheese. After some tweaking and refining, the JB Melt was born and added to the menu at the restaurant’s Midtown location, where they specialize in lunch.
