Noodles are the focus at Fun Noodle Bar, but the real stars of the show are the cooks behind the counter who create them.
During a recent visit, one of the cooks worked the dough like a virtuoso, stretching and winding it, swinging it like a jump rope and slamming it onto the counter. After a few minutes, the length of dough had been transformed into a filigree of delicate noodles bound for the Northeast Heights restaurant’s ramen bowls.
After that, a different cook stepped in and prepared shaved noodles by feverishly slicing away at a frozen block of dough with a knife. Strips flew off like birds taking flight. The patrons who filled the dining room that day appeared captivated.
