There's a new spot to get slurpable Chinese goodness in Harlem—and just in time for the coming cold weather.
The Noodle, an offshoot of popular five-year-old spot The Handpulled Noodle in Hamilton Heights, just opened at 370 Malcolm X Boulevard between W 128th and W 129th Streets in Central Harlem.
Like its sister restaurant, the Noodle offers a number of takes on its signature item, from the freshly-pulled ribbon style to gluten-free varieties made with either rice or sweet potatoes.
The noodles come in soup or as stir-fry in flavors such as spicy cumin beef or lamb, curry (including any protein), and ginger chicken. Seitan can be substituted in almost every dish.
Made-from-scratch dumplings, wontons and "street eats" like bao sliders round out the menu.
While it's more roomy than its sibling—there's an entire side space for indoor slurping—for now The Noodle only offers take-out and delivery.
Still, you're welcome to come pick up your order and check out the new space—wearing a mask, of course—complete with a bold graphic encouraging you to "slurp and burp."
