Included In

Meet Qin sits on a stretch of Main Street in Alhambra with excellent food—including dim sum at Lunasia or stir-fried Indonesian dishes from Borneo Eatery—but this noodle joint holds its own. Hand-pulled noodles are available in three ways: in soup, stir-fried, or dry. The sizzling oil biang biang noodles are as head-turning as the fajitas at Chili’s, still sputtering as the chili crisp blooms in the hot oil. The noodle soup isn’t as performative, but the clear broth with tender beef chunks is pure comfort. There are also fun riffs, too: mapo tofu noodles arrive with generous amounts of cubed silken tofu and fiery minced pork, while the egg and tomato soup is gently sweet with fluffy egg curds.
