Qian Do Lami Hand Pulled Noodles: Fresh Hand Pulled Noodles in Malate

Qian Do Lami Hand Pulled Noodles recently opened along the busy streets of Malate in addition to the clubs, hotels, casinos and other restaurants.  While there are many establishments to dine in, we were very eager to try Qian Do Lami Hand Pulled Noodles because there is hardly any restaurant in the area that serves fresh hand pulled noodles.

Their sign is well lit and the menu with price and imagery will surely entice passers by to try it out.  Upon entry there is a counter in front which I could not comprehend why since they don't adopt the pay-as-you-order system.  Perhaps, they are expecting take-outs and deliveries where customers will order upfront.

The interiors are simple like a typical downtown noodle house.  It made me feel as if I was in Chinatown when this is located in the middle of Malate.  It had a orange and white color scheme.  It looked clean and cozy despite its simplistic appearance. Despite the lack of air-conditioning, it was well ventilated.  There were only around 10 tables.  Every orange table has six matching orange chairs each.  The tables are equipped with chopsticks, sauces, napkins and even the menu. 

I have observed that their customers are from all walks of life.  Some customers are foreigners while the others are locals who are even wearing their comfortable homey clothes.

Dongbei Chives Dumpling (99 php)
Each order of the Dongbei Chives Dumpling has six pieces.  That's a good deal because you could tell by your first bite that they are made fresh with quality ingredients.  The shell is silky and easy to chew.  The meat with chives is so moist that its juice that pours all over your mouth.

Braised Beef Lami (129 php)
The Braised Beef Lami was a satisfying bowlful of braised beef chunks, vegetables, hand pulled noodles and green onions.  The noodles are firm and chewy.  The broth tasted a bit sweet and savory from the braised beef with hints of herb and spices.  Every lami order also comes with a choice of drinks: Coffee, Milk Tea or Ice Tea.  Too bad the Milk Tea was not available during our visit so I had to settle with Iced Tea.  

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Qian Do Lami Hand Pulled Noodles is a good place to go for a satisfying quality meal.  The meals they offer are really cheap that it can even compete with the prices of fast food chains.  If ever we end up in this side of the area, we will definitely drop by here again to try out their other offerings.  I'm looking forward to trying more of their Donbei Dumplings.  This is indeed a good find for us.
