Saw a Tony Bourdain episode from Sichuan province in China awhile back where they made hand-stretched noodles, so I decided to go on a 'mission from God' to find some around here.
After a helluva lot of searching, Noodle King in Chinatown is the only place I could find in the Northwest that has the real deal... and the search was absolutely worth the effort. I finally found them through the fine folks over at the MSG150.com blog.
Been to Noodle King several times now and every dish I've had is darn good. I'd say they're in the top 3 or 4 noodle places in Chinatown. Perhaps because they're a new business, they always seem to have a special where you can get a great bowl of soup for around four bucks.
Anyway, I was messing around with a new camera and some software and filmed the noodle guy working his magic the other day. It was cool enough that I decided to finally get a YouTube account and post it for others.
I'd like to see this place do well, so I thought I'd pimp 'em a bit and hopefully help raise the bar for all the other noodle joints in this part of the world, which can only be a good thing.
