The Legendary Noodle restaurant in Richmond had closed.
We went to the Legendary Noodle restaurant in Richmond. It’s a small diner with only about 30 seats. What sets this place apart is that the chef pulls and cuts the noodles by hand. The chef is a very nice humble man who so graciously consented to have his pictures taken when we asked. He made it look so simple!
He stretches the dough, brings two ends together, spins it, twists it and repeats the process over and over again until they all form thin strands of noodles. It must have been at least 100 yards of noodles by the time he finished.
Nothing compares with a bowl of freshly made noodles. I swear that there’s a difference in Legendary’s noodles — not only in the look but also in the taste and texture. They are tender, yet chewy.
The strands are so long that the waitress actually cut the noodles with a pair of scissors just before they bring it to our table.

Nanzaro (he he he, that’s my younger boys nickname for this blog!) ordered the Noodle in Pork Chop Soup. The pork chop was chunky and the soup was tasty. $5.99. Nanzaro shared this with his mum.
I ordered their signature dish — the Noodle in House Special Beef Soup. Comes in two size: Large for $6.80 and small for $5.80. The soup was clear and served with thinly sliced beef flank. I wished that they did not add in the bean sprout (I hate bean sprout in soup!)
Son #1, “Arkensen”, ordered the House Special Fried Rice with Lamb for $6.85. It’s nothing special really and a bit on the bland side. Hmmm … looks even oily but Arkensen loves it.
