Does anyone know of a restaurant that demonstrates hand pulled noodles?

    while you're at super taste, you should also get the "knife cut noodles". it's not on the english menu (at least last time i checked) but they have it. and it's where i go when i have the craving.

      Is the same as what the place across the street calls "peel noodles"? http://www.villagevoice.com/nyclife/0... Yes, knife cut noodles (刀削面) is the correct name as far as I know but I could be wrong..

      Funnily enough, that Super Taste post ChrisZ mentions is easily our most popular post EVER. We still go at least once or twice a month and have never been disappointed.

        Of the three most popular hand-pulled noodle shops in Chinatown -- Super Taste, Sheng Wang and Eastern Noodles -- I've been most impressed with Super Taste. Opinions differ, however.

          I agree, I like Super Taste. Lots of previous posts on this, such as http://www.chowhound.com/topics/322988 These places don't "demonstrate" the hand pulling for the customers, but if you peek in the kitchen you can watch them doing it.

                  try the spicy beef or the pork bone and get an order of the fish balls or dumplings (though i'd recommend going up the street to dumpling house or prosperity for much better dumplings)

                    i love super taste's dumplings and would totally recommend them. very distinct flavor (wish I could describe them better, but i'm not that good)
