Most of us are acquainted with the ramen noodles that come in a cup, and that only require you adding hot water to be ready to eat. However, real hand-pulled noodles, or lamian (拉麵) – the kind used in niu rou mian (牛肉面), require a great deal of muscle applied to beating, kneading, pulling, and stretching long ropes of dough for the noodles before the noodles can be cooked and then added to a meat-based soup, also made from a secret recipe unique to each restaurant.
