best handmade noodle?

I am very picky when it comes to noodles. It's gotta be handmade! I especially love the thick, uneven types. No skinny, spaghetti-like strands for me. What are your recommendations for the best handmade noodle?

  1. Are you talking about japanese noodles? If so there is a place in Pacific Mall that makes them in house, out front for all to see. Very tasty.
    It is on the second level of the mall in the food court area.

        I was thinking more along the lines of northern chinese style noodles. It seems that Sun's Kitchen is quite popular for their noodles (and presentation!)

        1. Pasta Pantry near Davisville carries many kinds of freshly made pasta.

          1. Mother's Dumplings has handmade noodles for their da lu noodles. You have to specify handmade, though, as they also have a cheaper, machine made option.

              Mother's offer handmade option for all of their noodle dishes, not just da lu noodles. I usually get the one with beef in soup.

              I usually prefer the texture of noodles at the Pacific Mall place. They do use more MSG in their dishes than Mother's (or at least I usually feel more thirsty after the meal). But being able to see them make the noodles individually for each order is half of the fun. They also offer shaved noodles.

              autumnlilacs - These are Northern Chinese style noodles. When you say thick, I assume you mean either this or Japanese udon. I have not yet found a place that does handmade udon. I believe Kenzo & iNoodles have handmade Japanese ramen.
