WHAT ARE CHINESE HAND-PULLED NOODLES?

Chinese hand-pulled noodles are known for their fine taste and are prepared using different techniques (hand-pulled and knife-shaved). A variety of spices and ingredients are used to optimize the flavor.

The restaurant says they will offer some of the best, authentic dishes: “LanZhou beef noodle soup and ShanXi shaved noodle soup are considered one of the top 10 noodle dishes in China.  Lanzhou beef noodle soup is characterized by its clear beef soup, white radish, red chili sauce, green cilantro & scallion and yellow noodle. ShanXi shaved noodle soup is also very popular with the chewiness of the noodle and thick soup flavor. The noodle master will shave the noodle into a certain thickness, also make very nutritional soup to achieve the best taste.”

No word on an opening date but we do know that visitors will get dinner and a show when they stop in to eat because they’ll get to watch the “noodle masters” in action.
