Hand Pull Noodles @Imperial Tea, Epicurious Garden [Berkeley]

I've seen mostly posts on the tea, but they have quite good food at Imperial Tea at the Epicurious Garden in Berkeley. Today Jing and I had the hand pull noodles, which we both enjoyed a lot. I'm not positive they were actually hand pulled, but I'm pretty sure they were at least hand made. Had a nice chewy bite to them and a sauce that complemented but did not overwhelm the noodles. They asked if we wanted it spicy, and we said no. They have a version with spicy beef, but we just got the plain one.

We had the green onion pancake (cong youbing) as well, which was fine, but nothing special. Last time we were there, we snacked on some steamed buns (baozi). I had the vegetable buns which were fresh and nicely flavored.

I liked all the food I've tried so far, but the hand pulled noodles is the dish I'd go back for.
