New Fav Bowl

I am really happy with the hand pulled noodles at New Mandarin Garden. They have the exact right springiness and firmness. As much as I like the beef noodle soup there, I think I found one I like even better. It's their shredded pork and mustard green noodle soup (xue cai ro si tang mian). The broth is medium body but such complexity and flavour! And not greasy. It's interesting how the ramen broths I've been having have all been heavier and oilier but with less flavour.
The pork was tender and the mustard green was barely marinated and still had a lot of crunch and bitterness. The bowl comes piping hot. Yum, yum, yum....
