Following the news of the Meatball Shop’s first location with booze, Num Pang has opened an outpost that will serve alcohol, too. The new flagship, which opened yesterday, is serving local Asian beer on tap, wine, and Cambodian sangria with tropical fruit, lemongrass, and ginger. It’s also the first Num Pang to have full seating; it can fit up to 30 people. The menu includes old favorites as well as several add-ons, all of which are more fitting for dinner than a sandwich. Jasmine or brown rice bowls come with your choice of marinated pork steak, grilled market fish, or seasonal vegetables, and cold vermicelli noodles are served with either coconut tiger shrimp, grilled pork, or grilled steak. With No. 7 Sub as a neighbor, this stretch of Broadway’s quickly becoming a sandwich haven.
Num Pang, 1129 Broadway, at 26th St., 212-647-8889
