Everyone knows about the Japanese ramen craze, but what about authentic Chinese hand pulled noodles? We know there's alot of this cuisine in Markham, but what about downtown TO? People are lining up down the BLOCK to dine at this quaint, Chinese noodle shop.
At GB Hand-Pulled Noodles, you get to experience authenthic Chinese cuisine, as most of the chefs have lived in China for over twenty years. As soon as you walk in the door, you will immediately notice the head chef kneading, tossing, twisting, and flogging a giant piece of dough against his table. It's a very cool experience to watch as you enjoy your hot bowl of Lanzhou-style beef noodles.
You can choose between several noodle styles (thick, flat noodles or thin vermicelli, and everything in between) as well as spice level and small, large or MEGA bowls. They also offer traditional side dishes, like Chinese tea leaf eggs, kimchi and spicy cucumber. Here are some of their dishes off the menu:
- Special lanzhou noodles (beef or vegetarian, with 7 noodle styles to choose from)
- Soup noodles with homemade pork sauce
- Lanzhou Beef
- Jelly fish in sesame oil
