Fresh Noodles at Sha Lin
I was given a special treat this year for my birthday–lunch out at the Sha Lin Noodle House in Vancouver, BC. They don’t take reservations so we crowded into the doorway to get out of the rain and hovered hungrily over the nearest table, the wait wasn’t long and we were soon seated with a great view of the glass-enclosed kitchen where noodles were being tossed, cut, pulled and cooked. We ordered noodles in various states as well as cucumbers in a toasted sesame dressing which was fantastic. The helpings were huge, even though we were stuffed we walked out the door with some hefty doggy-bags.
On the way out the back door, I was able to get a quick video of the professionals at work, noodles being pulled and steam rising as other noodles are dropped into pots of boiling water. Service is rapid and friendly. Fun interactive and very reasonably priced. I was lucky to get a meal here, before I realized that I am sensitive to gluten, as it will probably be a while before I can go back!
