We wanted to go out for some Asian fare in celebration of Chinese New Year and made a stop over at The Handpulled Noodle last night for a quick bite.  Rich, freshly made wheat noodles in various thickness are the specialty of the house but rice noodles are an option for those who want to switch it up for one reason or another. Our personal choice was that there are no Vietnamese restaurants to be found uptown and the herbed beef soup at the Handpulled Noodle was very similar to some of the Pho soups we have tried in the past.

Ordering the broth spicy comes up with something similar to Bun Bo Hue which usually has thick, round rice noodles and thus the gluten free version on the Chinese menu really satisfies our search for an alternate Vietnamese option.  There is also a ginger chicken soup to choose from and those who are familiar with Pho Ga will probably want to try this one out.  As far as grabbing a bite in-house goes, it gets busy around 8:00PM but usually a seat becomes available especially if one kindly ask those diners leaving their bags on the counter if it is okay to eat at that space.  More on The Handpulled Noodle on Broadway and 148th can be found in our past post: LINK
