In Chinatown, where before Covid there was a family restaurant specializing in lamian, today another Chinese restaurant has taken over and has kept the menu more or less unchanged: Mianmianjudao.
The interiors have remained almost unchanged compared to the old restaurant (rustic and essential), the menu focuses mainly on the first courses: sautéed rice or soy noodles and, above all, homemade lamians pulled by hand. Few of the recipes of the latter, but done quite well: with vegetables, minced meat, shrimp, chicken or pork ribs - I tried just that, the broth was very light and clear, the noodles fresh and very good.
Another house specialty is dumplings, all hand made with the exception of xiaolongbao. I opted for the grilled meat classics, which are also light but tasty.
Among the cold appetizers I point out the excellent and spicy cetrioli massacrati, while as a hot treat I recommend the fried chicken fillets: a seemingly banal dish but here really well done and tasty since the chicken has been marinated for a long time.
Mianmianjudao's cuisine is simple, as is the atmosphere and the room service (a bit too slow, in my opinion). I therefore recommend it as an alternative for a quick lunch break if you don't want to weigh yourself down and if you want to spend little.
