Hand Pulled Noodles

Is there a place in TO that specializes in this? And is good?

    Mother's Dumplings on Huron street makes hand pulled noodles...
    I think it's good but I don't have a huge sample size to say for sure

    Also there was a place in Mississauga in the plaza with T&T... again - it was delicious again - small sample size.

      I only know of Sun's Kitchen in Pacific Mall: http://www.sunskitchen.com/about.html. The noodle texture is good and chewy and the broth was alright. The pieces of meat that I got with mine were very fatty though.

        Hmmm.. The food court setting is not too appetizing.. your mentioned fatty meat makes me think it won't be an exception to all other fast food restaurants.. Nonetheless... I'll probably check it out if I'm ever in the area. Thanks!

            trust me, a lot of good asian eats are in food courts. Nobody is doing lai mein in the city like him.

            Most lai mein stands in China are pretty low brow too, it's a cheap working class dish.

            Fun to watch if you're in the area, but the time I went, there was nothing to write home about. Maybe it's gotten better?

              i was there once a few years ago. cool to see. soup was not great. and you get a cup of soy milk with your soup (strange flavour combo of soy milk and broth...)

                it is common to serve soy milk/drink w/ soup noodles in northern china.

                The broth is average here, again the strong point is obvious, the hand pulled noodles. There are brothless versions you can order, best imo is the pork w/ preserved mustard greens.
