Handmade noodles and fresh tofu

Hello. I absolutely love handmade noodles, and I only have two weeks left here. I've had every kind of handmade noodle I know of, but maybe there's something I'm missing that I should try before I leave!

I've had...
- Soba at Cocoron and SobaKoh
- Udon at Onya
- Ramen at Ippudo and Momofuku Noodle Bar (I'm assuming handmade?)
- Jja jang myun and jjamppong at Hyo Dong Gak

I haven't really ventured much into the Chinese noodle scene (...yet).

Do you know of anything I absolutely should try before I leave?

I just remembered -- I also love fresh tofu and had never had it before living here. I've enjoyed it at EN Japanese Brasserie, Cocoron and Onya. So far, I liked Cocoron's best. Am I missing anything?

Some parameters: I'm willing to venture out a little into the outer boroughs by subway, but no more than a 30 minute trip from the Financial District, please. As for price, I'm not expecting to pay more than $25 for a dish (though I can be convinced otherwise!). And lastly -- don't hate me! -- I don't like pho. I had it every week in college and can't stomach it anymore somehow. Sorry!

Thanks Chowhounders. You guys are awesome. And for the noodles alone, I love this city!
