tried out the new hand pulled noodle joint at the Longwood Galeria tonight. got the number 1, hand pulled noodle with vegetable, and it was pretty good. the noodles were a little soft but still had bite, the broth was full of garlic and had a nice vinegary edge and there was plenty of bok choy, scallions and chili. the dish has some spice but isn’t really overpoweringly fiery.
the guy who does the cooking was cranking out some pretty good looking buns (they have a Shandong pork bun and a Shanxi Bao that comes with either beef or pork) and they have handmade dumplings too. There are a few other Chinese noodle options that look promising as well and may bear further examination.
The atmosphere is horrible as it’s a weird food court and the other options there are McDonalds, some Philly cheese steak joint, Beantown Burrito and the like. Noodles King seems way better than the other options here and while I’d say it’s no destination, if you find yourself stuck at Longwood Medical for any reason I’d say this place is a far better choice than just about anywhere else in that vicinity.
