Delicious Hand Pulled Noodles
Im finally back after my 2 month hiatus!
I know my absence has been long…too long perhaps, but don’t get me wrong, hubby and i still had our dinner dates. In fact, one weekend, supportive hubby decided to take me out for some comfort food.
So that day, we reviewed the menu and watched the chefs make their specialty hand pulled noodles behind the glass panel of the open kitchen
Crystal Jade is a well respected and multi-awarded food and beverage company that has been dubbed a Superbrand.
So after weeks of anticipation, we were back at Crystal Jade’s door one weekend, number 5 on the waiting list, happily thinking about what we were going to order.
We got our order right away but poor family at the table beside us ordered one and their waiter forgot their xiao long bao. *gasp* I almost wanted to share our dish -well not really, after all, the 5 dumplings vanished from the bamboo dish almost as quickly as they were served.
La mian is a type of Chinese noodle which literally means pulled (la) noodles (mian). I first tasted la mian when hubby took me to Binondo
The broth almost crossed my threshold for spiciness but boy, did hubby enjoy slurping the hot and spicy soup. Because the noodles were so good i eventually learned that if you just eat the noodles and beef and don’t sip the soup much, the spicy dish could be enjoyed by the not so spicy fanatic.
Tender beef and perfect noodles submerged in delicious broth…nothing could be more comforting!
