Artisan takeout specialty shops are big trend in the city and The Handpulled Noodle on Broadway just north of 148th Street really has done things right.  In the past, the typical Chinese spot would be a hole in the wall with drop ceilings, fluorescent lights and backlit photos of each dish above the counter which is pretty much a fast-food model.  Hamilton Heights' new destination spot has exposed brick, hand painted signage and old school filament light bulbs all around along with some great noodles which are handmade in the kitchen.

This new eatery is both really hip and authentic with bold flavors that can be placed in a soup or stir fried with the desired protein.  Since the noodles are fresh, it is best to stay in for the soups and the saucy version should be ordered for takeout since they tend to get soggy quite quickly. Those hankering for a gluten free option that taste more like Vietnamese Pho should ask for the optional rice noodle replacement.   More about The Handpulled Noodle can be found in our past post: LINK

  1. They are so good, love that place. It really added to the Broadway corridor. I am looking to see who will be smart and latch onto the Amsterdam corridor just east of Hand Pulled, Harlem Public, & At The Wallace.

    Our area has so much going on, so exciting
