Located in the Galleria Food Court in the Longwood Medical Area, Noodles King is so low-key that you’ll be directed next door when you try to order a fountain soda. But you should gladly accept that minor inconvenience in exchange for hand-pulled noodles that are stretched and slapped against the counter right in front of you. The spice in the dan dan noodles is serious, and while the pork dumplings need a little sauce, you’re going to want to take a gallon of that sauce (in the form of as many little plastic cups as you can carry) home with you.
