Eastern Hand-Pull Noodles!

My fiancee and I finally went down to Eastern Hand-Pull Noodles, after all the posts here and the NYTimes article. It fully lived up to the hype.

The owner works the dough and pulls your noodles right then and there and drops them in broth with your choice of veggie or meat. We each had the Beef Pulled Noodle, since most of the other choices were parts of the animal we don't prefer. The broth was fine, but the noodles were worth the trip all by themselves. If you want spicy, add some of the chili oil on the table. I love spicy food and that oil ranks up there as some of the spiciest oil I've tried.

It's worth noting that while we were the only customers in the place (9:30pm on Friday night) and we interrupted their family dinner, the owner could not have been nicer, more accommodating or more gracious. We both feel that New York Noodletown has far superior soup, but the noodles and the friendly owner makes us want to return to Eastern now and again.

Definitely worth a trip for anyone who has interest!!
