hand-shaved or hand-pulled noodles in chinatown?

Is Noodle Alcove still the best choice for hand-shaved or hand-pulled noodles? I'm looking to get some stir-fried noodles to take out and eat on my plane ride back home to San Francisco (where, oddly enough, hand-shaven and hand-pulled noodles are nearly impossible to find). Thanks.

  1. The Noodle Alcove is gone - RIP. As far as I know, it was the only place to get hand-shaved or -pulled noodles in Chinatown. A while ago I posted here about this and someone suggested I try the chow mein noodles at King Fung's Garden. I tried them, and they were OK, but nothing at all like hand drawn noodles. I'm holding out for my next trip to China, personally, but maybe another poster will know of another option in Chinatown??
