Recently, we set out for a lunch adventure to catch up on life and celebrate happy news in our lives. We decided to make our way to Lam Zhou Hand-Pulled noodles on East Broadway. This hidden gem has become popular amongst locals and tourists as well! Walking from Bayard Street, we took the underpass to get from Chinatown to what people are now calling, “Little Fuzhou.” What’s the secret? Go into Confucius Plaza circle and make your way downstairs towards the parking lot. Keep walking, and you will find yourself on Division Street!
We had so much to talk about that we almost missed the restaurant, which is a hole in the wall with a yellow awning. With limited seating, you are welcomed to seat yourself. Get acclimated with the menu on the wall and when you are ready, walk over to the opened kitchen to tell the chefs what you would like to order! We kept it simple and ordered a beef brisket soup noodle dish and boiled dumplings to share.
The dishes came out within 5 minutes and we were slurping away. There are condiments on the table, such as hot sauce or vinegar for the dumplings. The most impressive thing? The filling of the dumplings were so juicy that we did not need any extra dipping sauce! We had a great time catching up and definitely recommend this gem to all of you!
