Colorful Eats at Kelley and Ping, SoHo

Wall of Masks at Kelley & Ping, SoHo
Photo by myself at Kelley & Ping, at Greene and West Houston Streets.

A colorful wall of Chinese masks and wallpaper adorns the wall of Kelly & Ping, in SoHo.

Part grocery store, part eatery, Kelley & Ping serves up Asian noodles, dumplings and curry. It's a great place to stop off for a quick bite if you're enjoying the boutiques in this area.

Choose between Vietnamese grilled beef, Malaysian curried noodles and green papaya salad. Top off your meal with Thai iced tea or coffee.

There's always the old stand-bys like Pad Thai (rice stick noodles with Shrimp, egg, peanuts and scallions) and Pad See Yew (rice noodles with chicken, vegetables and dark soy sauce) if you can't decide.

As a pan-Asian restaurant, the food of many countries are represented here, including Japan, China, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

I love this wall.

I used to drag my butt through the dark streets in Japan, looking forward to the next naked light bulb at the intersection. One down, I forgot how many more to go before I crossed the Hirose river and checked back in my camp. Sometimes I would stop at what looked like an American Privy on wheels and walk in and set down at a counter with one other stool beside me. I would be given the meal that they always had. Hot steaming noodles. Gosh that was good and makes my mouth water to this day.

Now, just breathing is difficult,
And the cost is awfully high.
When I think how it used to be
I think I'm gonna cry.
