La Mian

La Mian

The first ingredient of every bowl of la mian noodles is hard work. If you hear a rubbery tug from a restaurant kitchen followed by the unmistakable slap-slap against a well-floured counter, that's the sound of a skilled chef turning flour and water into the delectable strands of noodles that make their way into our bowls or plates, with everything from piping hot broth, or brisket and lamb with peppers. 

The long-treasured craft of pulling noodles by hand stretches all the way across the provinces of China, to its bustling metropolises, and across the Pacific Ocean to our local stores in Scarborough. And just as the main ingredients--flour and water--are equally versatile in the hands of the baker as in between the fingers of the noodle chef, so too are the noodles versatile for every expression of Chinese cuisine in our city, from Xinjiang and Beijing to Szechuan and Cantonese restaurants.
