Slurping noodles at this small, Spartan restaurant along East Broadway is a somewhat strange experience. Drinks can be plucked from the outdoor fridge, and very little English is spoken inside. Once settled solo at the counter laden with smoky Chinkiang vinegar and Sriracha or at one of the two coveted tables, just tell the man standing at the marble slab your order and brace yourself. Loud smacks interrupt conversation as kitchen hands fling dough onto the marble, then nimbly twist and pull it into delicate noodle strings. The noise attracts stares, but these soft yet springy noodles are the stars of Lan Zhou Handmade Noodle's soups. Bathed in a light broth made from boiled beef bone, they're best alongside tender beef brisket or steamed oxtail. Sit down, slurp up, and skedaddle may be the unspoken mantra among eaters, but dumplings filled with beef, cabbage, and scallions and wrapped in a thin, crisp skin are fit to be savored.
