Play Like Kids Together At Toy Tokyo, Then Slurp Noodles at Ho Foods

Embrace your inner child by taking a trip to the toy store. Toy Tokyo in the East Village offers an array of toys and collectibles, all worthy of careful browsing. Look at the Kaiju selection, featuring Godzillas of varying heights and colors, or get nostalgic looking at other antique toys, some of which may remind you of your childhood favorites. Maybe even buy a blind box or two and be surprised at the mini figure you get; items offered range from superheroes to kawaii creatures.

Once you’re done, take your loot over to Ho Foods, a cozy restaurant offering traditional Taiwanese beef noodle soup. The menu is as small as the tiny storefront— there is only one main dish offered and it is the rich “red cooked” beef noodle soup with its 24 hour bone and marrow broth, though you can choose wide or round noodles and add on extra meat or spice. While the noodles are the star of the meal, you can top off an already-perfect meal by sharing sides like pickled cucumber, pork belly, or tofu, all expertly and authentically prepared.
