Right in the heart of Elmhurst, Queens is one of our favorite hand pulled noodles & dumpling spots! This place is called Lao Bei Fang and has been a staple in the area for years. It also makes a very bang for the buck meal as their portions come large and at an affordable price. With about $10 you can get an order of hand pulled noodles as well as an order of dumplings!
Whether you choose steamed or pan fried dumplings, you can never go wrong with either one because they are both delicious! Although there is a wide selection of noodles on the menu, we typically get our favorite Beef noodle soup. This bowl of goodness is freshly made as you can witness the chef in the back pulling and stretching the noodles by hand! Each pound on the table makes the “biang” sound signaling how fresh your noodles are made.
Once you walk into the restaurant, you will be able to see the menu items behind the counter and order at the register. Find a seat for yourself and wait for your name to be called. It is not the most high end restaurant, in fact some may call it a hole in the walk type, but if you want seriously good food for a great price you won’t be disappointed.
