On the dating scene again and my date took me to the Noodle House.  We were originally going to go to Dim Sum Garden, but it was crowded and we were going to a show, so we went next door for some noodles.  We got dumplings, I got fried noodles and shrimp and she got some of those hand drawn flat noodles with pork, I think.

All of it was excellent.  The shrimp was especially fresh.  And let me tell you, that whole street should be in the dumpling hall of fame.  They were awesome and all of it was very filling.  I didn’t realize how much homemade noodles would fill me up.  The only down side for me, is eating noodles with chopsticks.  I like to eat fast and these really slow me down.  It’s sometimes frustrating to try and eat noodles and the little meat bits while they keep falling off the sticks.  Fortunately, there are those little spoons in the Chinese food condiment kit, so we were safe.

I give Nan Zhou Hand Drawn Noddle House 8.5 out of 10 keggers.  Excellent noodles and even better dumplings.  Visit Philadelphia’s Chinatown soon, bros!
