Profile

In this friendly corner of Queens, Chinese wheat noodles are made from scratch and coaxed by nimble fingers into impressive varieties—ranging from wide, Möbius-like “belts” to fragile, “dragon beard” threads. They find their way into a number of soups, bowls, plates and trays, each dish fitted to a specific form of noodle and cooked impeccably. While the restaurant attracts visitors with Henanese specialties like “Big Tray of Chicken,” just about every plate or bowl offers the freshness and finesse one would associate with a much higher price tag. Here, a humble beef noodle soup reveals the lemon-tinted tones of fresh Sichuan peppercorn; perfectly cooked bok choy are served in a garlic-infused braising liquid worth the cost of admission; and a rotating selection of cold appetizers deserves a thorough investigation. The sheer breadth of the menu (not to mention cheerful owner Steven Zhou, who often takes photos with his most enthusiastic fans) begs for family-style meals.

Recommended Dishes
