Noodle House in Van

Just saw an episode of Glutton for Punishment, featuring hand made noodles, and the guy he was learning from was in Vancouver chinatown.

Does anyone know where they are? I would love to try those--we were drooling watching this episode!

    I didn't see the show, but there is a Taiwanese noodle place on the south side of Granville Street that has awesome Taiwanese noodles.

    Taiwan Beef Noodle House
    8390 Granville Street, Vancouver
    Tel: 604-266-7966

    I think they're open 24 hrs as well. Service could be better, but the food was good.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, when we were there they did say they were hand made.

      Hi taiphun, would love to hear more about your experience(s) here, as I have a friend who just absolutely raves about this place, but I've been reading a lot of horrible comments (especially about the service) on other boards, and would love to hear a Chowhound summary...

        Agreed! My cousin lives near Granville Street and is forever heaping praises on this place, but I haven't been yet. I have a trip in the spring to Vancouver, and would love to hear a little more from a slightly more impartial source.

      I watched this episode a while back, and I could be wrong, but I think Bob was training at Legendary Noodle.

        There are also 2 places around Broadway + Cambie area almost next door to eachother. Sha Lin Noodle House is the oldest of the 2, perhaps in the city.
