Restaurant Review: Num Pang Kitchen

Details: Located at 140 E 41st St, New York, NY 10017. Official site is

Score: 6.6/10

Num Pang is a fast casual southeast Asian fusion restaurant that mainly caters to the working lunch crowd. The food’s pretty good, it’s just kind of expensive.

My go to item here was the five spiced glazed pork sandwich which cost around twelve dollars. The sandwich isn’t large. I just enjoyed the fatty braised meat.

Recently, I tried the five spiced glazed pork rice bowl. It comes with a few pickled sides among other things. It was okay, but not worth the fourteen dollars it cost.

This specific location has no seating. It gets packed during lunch time and is very popular among the office workers in the area.

Overall, this place was okay. The portion sizes are unsatisfying. The prices are high. It’s what you’d expect from a trendy Asian, fast casual food place. Personally, I’m probably never going to come back. There are too many better options in the area.

Score: 6.6/10
