When you don’t feel like cooking, but you also don’t feel like eating in a restaurant, and you also needed to be fed approximately three hours ago, your move should be The Handpulled Noodle. In addition to being efficient and convenient, you can’t do much better in the area for Chinese noodles and dumplings. Unlike the flat, wide noodles you might have tried at X’ian Famous Foods, this place’s specialty is “ding ding noodles,” which kind of look like gnocchi. Get them with spicy cumin lamb, and it’s an incredibly satisfying plate of food that you’ll want to eat immediately. Not just because it’s delicious, but because they tell you to do so.
