I've tried about every restaurant on 18th Avenue in Brooklyn, most of them being just food that got by except for "World Tong on 62nd. A new place opened up across from my haircutter called "Hand Pull Noodle and Dumpling House". This either had to be a bad joke or someone who didn't speak English too well. Anyway, I enter this very simple, very lightly decorated place, not expecting much.
The place was kind of crowded with Asian people. Usually this is a good sign that the food is good, but it was just too simple. I took a look at the menu: Only 25 items on it, too simple again. It had 4 appetizers, 3 soups and 16 different hand pulled noodle soups. The prices ranged from $3.95 - $6.75 I asked the guy behind the counter for a suggestion, he "The house special"($6.75).
While I am waiting there was a guy making the hand pulled noodles for my soup, fresh. The people who worked there were extremely nice, warm and friendly. The girl behind the counter brought me a very large bowl filled to the top. To make a long story short, this place was better than any Pho' place I have ever been to (And I have been to many) and really shocked me.
In short, "Hand Pull Noodle and Dumpling House" knocked my socks off! It is simply one of the best bowls of needles I have had in a long time.
