Best Noodles New York 2013 - Lam Zhou
Step through the door of Lam Zhou on the border of the LES and Chinatown, and the fwap-fwap-fwap of a cook slapping dough into noodly submission on a back table will come to a momentary halt so that you can place an order. You want the dumplings, probably, and the beef soup noodle, definitely. The latter nets you those thin, chewy, hand-pulled noodles in a bowl of deeply pungent broth, which you can spike with a blast of chile if you're inclined (we know we are). This soup will cure what ails you and warm your bones on even the coldest winter days.
