The name says it all. The best noodles and lots of them. Traditional noodles are made on the premises by skilled artisans. Noodles have a long and rich history in China’s culinary landscape. The earliest record of their popularity stretches back 2,000 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty. From China, noodles spread through the rest of Asia. Noodles have many associations in Chinese culture - longevity and bounty, among them.
Among the most popular are La Mian noodles, which are hand-made by twisting, stretching and folding the dough into strands, using the weight of the dough. "Making noodles in this way is an art form that is handed down from master to apprentice over the years," explains Chef Chan. "The length and the thickness of the strands depend on the number of times the dough is folded."
At The Noodle Kitchen, the flour imported from Inner Mongolia is prized for its purity and fine quality.
