Nanzhou Hand Drawn Noodle House is one of the first places I ate at when I moved down to the area about 2 years ago. It’s a real tiny place, seating maybe about 40 or less. On busy days, you may have to knock elbows with strangers at the communal round table (I’ve done it before). It’s worth it though, you can get a pretty tasty (and cheap) bowl of noodles.
Their noodles are fresh and hand drawn right in the back. You can see em from the dining area. I was fascinated when I saw chefs in China doing this and was glad that I found a place here that pulls noodles!
The following was ordered at our table:
I don’t go to Chinatown as much as I used to, so it’s been a while since I made it back here. You bet I’m glad I stopped by though. Everything was pretty good, though I’d stick with the beef noodles. I went with the lamb this time and it just wasn’t as awesome as I’d hoped. There were a lot of bones and it just wasn’t as enjoyable as the beef (beef was my go-to previously). My brother got the seafood and he seemed to enjoy it. In addition to everything, I ordered peanut noodles to share. They’re only $3, so why not! Pretty fantastic too. I was totally craving these for lunch yesterday….if I only worked nearby…
