We only live once so why not enjoy your life to the fullest by treating yourself to your favorite comfort food. There are few things in life better than a bowl of authentic and properly-constructed handmade noodles. In Fairview (Quezon City), it’s hard to find a noodle place with the real thing. Good news cos I’ve encountered Kazhu Hand-pulled Noodles in Ayala Fairview Terraces.
The restaurant’s interior will transport you to China and the history of Kanzhu Hand-pulled noodles which is printed on one of their wall.
Hand-pulled Noodles (la mian 拉面) is a Lanzhou delicacy, also famous in Kanzhu, and is crafted by repeatedly stretching the dough. Noodles need to be kneaded for long periods of time to get a chewy consistency.
Braised Beef & Tendon Noodle Soup- Php185.00
Begin with a slurp of the broth of the steaming bowl of noodles, which tasted flavorful, strapping and with mid-level spiciness. My chopstick picked up a few strands of the noodles, a piece of the beef and I went on and on, on repeat mode for the rest of my lunch.
Delicious Chicken with Chinese Pepper Gravy- Php280.00
Pair the hand-pulled noodles with a delicious chicken and pepper gravy, and you’ll have a hearty meal that will have you wishing you’d worn bigger pants.
Vegetable Fried Rice- Php150.00
Vegetable fried rice, this is one dish that needs no introduction, and indeed it finds a place in every menu – from the street-side to five-star eateries! cooked rice combined with neatly cut veggies and tossed in special sauce.
Kazhu Hand-pulled Noodles was labeled as the No. 1 Noodles on Earth. I’m glad that they have a branch at Ayala Fairview Terraces which is 30 minutes away from home. It’s the texture of the noodles that keep patrons coming back. Their chewiness is a reflection of the effort the chefs put in to knead the flour and stretch it before cooking.
