looking for THICK soup noodles in Chinatown

My favorite northern chinese place (in another city) used to serve noodles in its noodle soup that were much thicker than I've seen in Lanzhou places in Chinatown. Similar style noodles were an option at one of the noodle places I went to when I was visiting Beijing.

Any place serve the thicker noodles? I suspect they're not hand-pulled, but rather, cut from rolled out dough. They have the thickness (and consistency) of the knife-shaved noodles, but they're long like the hand-pulled ones.

      Guh, I love Xian as much as the next guy, but that's as different as apples and oranges.

      Anyone else? I mean a thick, almost udon-like noodle, but one that is made by hand.

        Only seen that kind of noodle in Los Angeles. New York Chinatown is not particularly diverse (as opposed to Flushing), so would be surprised to find a Beijing type specialty there.

    2. I've not seen that type of noodle in Chinatown or Flushing so far...
