Here where I live in Alameda, California, there’s a Chinese restaurant where they hand-pull noodles behind a window in the back of the room. The atmosphere at Ark feels dated but the food’s pretty good and watching the guy swinging around noodle dough makes it worth the trip. However, there’s no opportunity to talk to the noodle maker and learn his story.

So, I was thrilled to see this Tasty video show up today. It gives insight on the artistry of hand-pulling noodles by two noodle masters, Peter Song of Kung Fu Kitchen in New York City and Shuichi Kotani, the CEO of Worldwide-Soba. Come for their stories but stay for the awesome footage of two pros making noodles dance (or vice versa).
