This Chinese cart in downtown’s Midtown Beer Garden is named for the hand-pulled, stretched, and slapped noodles that form the base of their beef soup, fragrant with five spice, and stir-fries slick with chili oil. The chewy texture of the noodles really shines in their stir-fried dishes with your protein of choice like tofu, chicken, or beef, and sliced scallions and crushed peanuts on top. The portions are big enough for two, so we recommend coming with a group, and ordering most of the menu (it’s short) so you can taste a variety of dishes.
