Lamian

Lamian

Originating in Lanzhou province, the local dish known as lamian (meaning “pulled noodle”) is a generous serving of noodles in a giant bowl of fragrant beef broth. Lanzhou Lamian joints are all over the city, and can be immediately recognized by the common sight of a young male cook pulling fresh noodles and dropping them into a huge boiling pot outside on the sidewalk. At these predominantly Muslim mom-and-pop shops, each serving is hand-made to order in front of your eyes, guaranteeing a fresh meal (and a bit of a show, too).
