Fresh Chinese Noodles overseen by the Master Noodle maker at King Won Ton

After my last visit to King Won Ton last week, my cousin who live in the area and has noodles at least twice a week was able to talk to the Master noodle maker Mr. Chin if he could buy the hand pulled and bamboo noodles.

He was informed that Mr Chin oversee the noodles, won ton skin and other fresh pasta products made by

North America Food Manufacturing

These pasta products are available at 99Ranch for one.

I was able to purchase some from 99Ranch today and had them for dinner tonight. Very good and had a decent bounce to the bite.

Not as good at King Won Ton (not the noodles by my lack of skill).

Will be trying more products later.

    Were you able to buy the very thin bamboo pole noodles at Ranch 99 besides the regular stock?

      Yes, I was able to buy both the very thin noodles like the Bamboo noodles and the thicker noodle lik e hand pulled thickness.

      Only had the very thin one tonight the thicker one tomorrow.

      78 cent for the thicker and 1.18 for the very thin.

      Have a package of each.

    2. Thanks! Good to know. I will have to re-test North America Food Wonton Noodle against my current favorite-noodle-when-making-it-at-home: PF select Authentic HK Style Noodle.

        Hong Kong noodle factory was my brand of choice, but I am now doing a my test in comparing the new brand. Do not know when Mr Chin started at North America.

        But I have had one type of noodles and will try another one soon. I will report back

          I like Hong Kong Noodle Factory's product too. Where do you buy it besides Orient Market in Oakland Ctown?

            Well, do not know about the East Bay, but I have purchase it at 99Ranch on the West Bay.

            I have seen it San Francisco Asian stores.

            1. re: yimster

              It's pretty ubiquitous at Chinatown stores. It's almost the default brand for stores. that only carry one brand.

      2. Bought 2 packs of fresh NAFM egg noodles for .79 each at 99 Ranch Richmond today -- did not see any other varieties.

          Today at the 99 Ranch in Richmond there were 3 varieties of noodles from NA Foods. The very thin wunton noodles, and then two sizes of fresh egg noodles: one pretty thin and one big size fresh egg noodle - the size often seen used for chow mein at chinese delis.

          1. re: gordon wing

            used the wuntun noodles in a bowl of soup this morning - very nice texture : did not get mushy.

            1. re: gordon wing

              I find that when I under cook them a little the heat from the soup finishes the noodles just right. Of course I will need a lot more time at the store to find the prefect cooking time. But nothing better on a cold night to keep you warm.

            2. re: gordon wing

              Thanks.. wonder what day(s) they deliver to Richmond. I used the ones I got for chow mein, turned out pretty good.

              1. re: kc72

                I bought my noodles on Tuesday around Noon and they had a good supply of all three varieties.

          2. Just wanted to mention that I looked for the noodles at the 99 Ranch in Milpitas yesterday and it had no noodles of any kind from North America Food.

              I got mine at Foster City and Curpertino 99Ranch stores.

              Have not been to the Milpitas store in a while.

              1. re: yimster

                Has anyone checked New May Wah? They seem to always have about 100 different kinds of fresh noodles.

                1. re: Xiao Yang

                  Well not everyone lives in the City. I only come up if I really need items not normally available down south. I am sure there are lots of place stocking many brands of noodles.

              2. re: Melanie Wong

                I shopped at the 99 Ranch in Dublin yesterday and it doesn't carry North American Food's noodles either.

              3. I will definitely try this place
