Super Taste, NYC Chinatown
One of the staple dishes in Chinese cuisine is the beef noodle soup.
My cousins told me to try out a small shop in Chinatown in Manhattan called Super Taste which specialized in Lanzhou style, or hand pulled, noodles.
They had different options on the menu, but I opted for the house special, which is the only one that is served in a metal bowl (everyone else gets disposable bowls). It was chock full of stewed beef, tendon, tripe and veggies in a pleasant beef broth.
The noodles were sublime and delicious. They had a nice tender, but not too soft, and they held the flavor of the broth well without diminishing their own subtle flavor.
