Shan Shan Noodles
333 Route 46
Open: Lunch and dinner, Tues-Sun
Price: $ BYO
Style: Small yet busy Chinese restaurant located in a strip mall next to an Asian market. The newly redecorated dining room features seating for up to 50 people, a mural of noodle making, and a window with a view into the kitchen so you can watch noodles being made by hand.
The Scoop: Owner Shan Shan Lu and her family are originally from Xinjiang in northwest China. She opened Shan Shan Noodles in October 2014.
The Menu: Start with a bowl of spicy wontons (pictured) or a plate of scallion pancakes or pork buns. Noodle dishes are the main event, with a number of options. Sautéed noodles can be ordered with vegetable, beef, chicken, seafood or pork (all under $10). Standout soups include lamb noodle stew, noodles with spicy minced pork, and beef tendon soup with knife-cut noodles. Opt for the hand-pulled noodles with sesame sauce if you’re averse to spicy food. The Chinese burger, a crispy bun filled with shredded, slow-cooked pork, is a house specialty. Dishes like kung pao chicken and dry-fried string beans are also worth ordering.
Heads Up: Having trouble managing the long tangles of noodles? The staff will gladly supply scissors to make them easier to eat. Pay with cash and get 10% off your bill.Click here to leave a comment
