Washington, 20001

Nestled into an unsuspecting corner of Chinatown, this family-run joint offers plump dumplings and steamed pork buns, but the green storefront's large glass window showcases the true star at this hole in the wall: You'll see chefs in tall white hats hand-pulling long strands of dough for the restaurant's perfectly chewy noodles. The best way to consume them is in the duck noodle soup, which drops the noodles into a savory duck broth and tops them with wilted bok choy, sliced scallions, and succulent, crisp-skinned roast duck.
