Halal-certified beef noodle chain eatery from Lan Zhou, specializing in a Chinese-Muslim style of beef noodles that’s popular in the Northwest part of China. Núodle’s Signature Beef La Mian ($8.80/$12.90) features springy hand-pulled la mian noodles in a clear soup broth filled with radish chunks, chopped scallions and aromatic chilli oil accompanied by thin slices of Halal beef. You can get the additional sliced beef (8 thick slice) at $8.80. Look out for the Beef Pancake ($3.90), a type of traditional Chinese meat pie (馅饼) with a crispy, flaky crust stuffed with seasoned beef and scallions.
Núodle’s menu is compact as the two other la mian bowls are Seafood La Mian soup ($8.80) and the Cool Mixed Beef La Mian ($9.90), next to side dishes such as braised egg, potato salad and pickled vegetables and a selection of pastries like Sweetheart Cake and Green Bean Cake best paired with Ba Bao Tea ($3.80). The Sour Plum drink ($2.50) is good for putting out the heat in case the beef noodles’ chilli oil got to you.
