Num Pang Teams Up With Ad-Rock For Some Smoked Meat

Grub Street reports that today Num Pang will unleash a new sandwich from their “Chefs Give Back” series. It’s in collaboration with Ad-Rock and sounds like a play on a reuben. It will combine Mile End smoked meat, chili Russian dressing, and the usual cucumbers, cilantro, and pickled carrots. The price tag is a bit heft at $16, but it comes with a pickle, chips, and soda, and is for a good cause (the proceeds go to Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition).

Not sure how or why Ad-Rock is considered a chef, but the sandwich sounds pretty amazing so who cares? It will be available through April 15.

Num Pang Launches The Gramercy Tavern Pang

It’s been a while since they’ve done one of these, but Num Pang just launched their new “Chefs Give Back” sandwich, this time in collaboration with Chef Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern. The Gramercy Tavern Pang will be available until the end of the month, but considering how tasty the Cardoz Pang was and the fact that I’ve never had a disappointing lunch at Num Pang, I couldn’t wait to try this one. Luckily there was no line at the new Times Square location (on 48th btw. 6+7th), so I was able to check it out on the very first day.

Times Sq. Num Pang Opening Weds, Tues is $3 Sandwich Day

Our favorite Cambodian sandwich place (Num Pang, thanks for asking) is opening their newest location in Times Square on Wednesday and to celebrate they’ll be open tomorrow (Tuesday) from 11am to 1pm selling 3 different sandwiches for $3.  It’s on 48th btw. 6+7th and for the $3 you’ll have your choice of peppercorn catfish, pulled pork or cauliflower. Do it. Do it.

Two New Places On Our Radar

W 48th Street Num Pang

Midtown is always in need of new lunch places, and it looks like we’ve got two (well, one is an expansion) to keep your eye on. The first is Midtown West’s chance to get in on the Num Pang sandwich action with a new shop on West 48th Street between 6th and 7th. Yes, this is the former location of one of the Sam Ashes on that street.

But wait… there’s more.

Num Pang’s Midtown Location Adds Salads, Noodles Coming Soon

Num Pang, a longtime Midtown Lunch favorite, has been serving tasty, Banh-Mi-esque Cambodian sandwiches at its midtown location (41st St. between 3rd Ave and Lexington) since 2011. This past February, Sarah visited their new flagship location in the Flatiron District, reporting news of a bigger menu, including more salads and rice and noodle dishes. Now, it looks as though these same menu items are making their way to the midtown location!

Urgent Flatiron News: Num Pang Flagship is Open!

We thought we posted this yesterday, but because of a glitch you may not have seen it so…

After several months of checking in almost weekly to see if they had opened yet (it was supposed to be Winter 2012), UltraClay delivered the wonderful news that Flatiron Num Pang has opened!! The folks over at Experience NoMad posted a preview of the space earlier this week, as did Mad Park News.

I stopped by last on Wednesday night to see it for my own eyes, and it is spacious and beautiful (old subway tile, etc) and has a ton of new menu options.

Num Pang Joins The Lambs Club

In their newest “Chefs Give Back” sandwich, Num Pang has added Indian flavors to its repertoire. We told you last week that they’ve teamed with Top Chef Master Floyd Cardoz (formerly of Tabla) to concoct the Cardoz Pang. And let me tell you, it’s a mighty tasty collaboration.

I have very strong memories of a game changing sandwich at Tabla’s Bread Bar many years ago. It was a pulled lamb sandwich with mustard mashed potatoes on a thick piece of grilled naan. So I was very eager to see what else Chef Floyd could do with lamb and bread.

Flatiron News: Num Pang Coming to Flatiron later this Year

Here’s a bit of Flatiron Lunch news before we lay this week’s review on you…

Entire libraries could be filled with prose about Num Pang. I know the above photo doesn’t look like much, but we have been informed that this is the future site of Num Pang. With the new branch opening later this year, Flatiron Lunchers have a few months to read up and prepare for the opening. To that end, find some light bedtime reading here, here and here.

Num Pang Brings Back the Peach Sandwich… For a Few More Weeks

Last summer, I was dying to try the Grilled Peach and Bacon Sandwich at Num Pang despite Donny’s moderate review. It sold out often and since peach season is limited, it disappeared from the menu before I ever got my hands on the little sucker.  Once I heard they were doing it again this year, I wasted no time in getting over there.
