Lanzhou hand-pulled noodles with beef are also known as "Lanzhou beef noodles" and are one of the most common dishes in the local area. Visitors can feast on them at every corner of the city. The noodles are handmade and it only takes an experienced cook one or two minutes to stretch the dough into many needle-thin noodles.
Small restaurants serving Lanzhou beef noodles can be found in almost every Chinese city, especially the bigger ones. However, most of them are hidden in small alleys or back streets. These smaller stores also tend to have the best noodles with the tastiest broth.
