FACTS: Located in Chinatown, Philadelphia
WHAT I ORDERED:
Snow Pea Tips with Fresh Garlic
Hand Drawn Noodle Soup: Roast Pork Noodle Soup; Served with Spinach, Cilantro, Scallion & Sour Pickle
My main objective for coming to Nan Zhou was to try their “hand drawn noodle” soup. And, not surprisingly, I selected the roast pork version, which also includes spinach, cilantro, scallions, and a sour pickle. I found the noodles, resembling the shape of spaghetti, to be both tasty and fresh. However, and surprisingly, I wasn’t fond of the broth and found it to be somewhat lackluster. That being said, I am really looking forward to trying one of their hot dishes during my next visit.
In addition to the soup, we ordered a side of snow pea tips. After being introduced to these delicious greens over a year ago, courtesy of Lloyd, I am officially hooked.
QUICK TIDBIT: If you prefer a wider and thicker noodle, be sure to ask for the “shaved noodles” instead.
