Mogouyan Hand-Pulled Noodles

Mogouyan is where to get hand-pulled Chinese noodles in all shapes, sizes, and sauces. 

Just a few seconds' walk from Bloor station, this convenient noodlery is the spot for bowls of Lanzhou-style noods made from scratch, and I recommend you come here hungry. 

mogouyan torontoThis is the only international location of the popular chain, which originated more than 40 years ago and purportedly takes its name after a region in Lanzhou, but is only just starting to expand abroad. 

mogouyan torontoAs per most restaurants serving hand-pulled noodles, you'll find cooks on display as they knead out and twist up these wheat strings which you can get in a handful of sizes: angel hair, classic, thin-round, thin-flat, or flat.

mogouyan torontoThe Dan Dan Noodles ($13.99) is a hulking bowl of this slightly spicy classic. It's done somewhere between Taiwanese and Sichuan, meaning you'll still get some of that sweetness with the heat. mogouyan torontoThe Dan Dan is served with a side bowl of some of that signature broth.
