Brand new Niuda completely changes the noodle game

Via Niuda

Hand-pulled noodles are so good, we’ve been eating them the same way for 400 years. Or so we thought…

Niuda is the newest noodle bar in Toronto and they’ve revamped the way Lanzhou noodles are made.

Normally, the hand-pulled noodles are served with mild broth and toppings. Enough of this “mild” business. Niuda takes five hours to perfect the flavour of their Wagyu beef broth. Talk about next-level devotion!

The resulting broth is insanely rich and one of a kind. You can top off your bowl with soft boiled eggs (that YOLK tho) and marinated braised pork belly.

Japanese-style ramen toppings on a new and improved Lanzhou noodle soup, why didn’t someone think of this earlier?

Even the decor is a nod both to tradition and modern style. From the front of the shop, you see a minimalist teal interior. From the back, however, it’s all wooden texture and classic Chinese style. We’re in love with it all.
