Going to DC this weekend, and love to know of a good (or great) noodle shop, for a
terrific "cold weather" lunch in the city or suburbs.....any suggestions ? Thanks in advance....

    I suggest Pho 75 in Rosslyn next to Ray's the Steaks.

      Along the same vein, does anyone know of a place that makes their own hand-drawn noodles?

      I don't know the name of it, but there's a hand-drawn noodle place in Philly's Chinatown. Their noodles with ground pork and soy sauce for about $4.50 is as good as it gets.

          I don't think the place in Philly is Korean, but the thwacking described in the review is right on the money!

          Has anyone ever been? Some of the reviews on Yelp aren't great...

          A&J (Rockville and Annandale) have hand drawn noodles for their noodle soups. The waitress will ask when you order whether you want the thin (packaged) noodles or the thicker hand drawn ones.

          Chinatown Express in Chinatown on 6th makes awesome hand-pulled noodles. Try them stir fried or in the soup. However, not much else there is worth writing home about.

            I agree, their noodles are great. The rest of the stuff is fine, including pretty good duck. But the veggie Low Mein with the thick fresh noodles is so good, huge, and a great bargain. My favorite take-out in Penn Quarter.

            On a related note, anyone know of a place around here that serves RAMEN?

            thanks in advance!
