Our Review

If you've strolled past Hing Kee in the mall over the last few years, you've probably seen Liu Chang Ming in action in the front window, his brawny, tatted forearms pulling, twisting, bouncing, and folding long, thick ropes of dough into dozens of strands of perfect fresh noodles. Now he's the star of his own show at nearby Sing's Noodle House, where working behind a glass enclosure at the rear of the dining room, he makes the same hand-pulled noodles. You can get them submerged in any one of 15 fathomless bowls of soup, like spicy chicken with battered deep-fried poultry nuggets or the classic niu rou mian with chunks of tender beef brisket and baby bok choy. But a better way to appreciate Liu's work is in one of eight stir-fries, including beef tips, oxtail, lamb, or clam. Less dramatically produced but even more texturally appealing are the shaved noodles, the irregularity of which makes them ideal for sauce adherence. There are also decent pot stickers and steamed dumplings, plus an assortment of appetizers like spicy pig ears, shredded kelp, and ma la noodles. Get really lucky and you'll catch the normally stoic Liu in a mesmerizing game of cat's cradle, during which he's not above breaking character and mugging for the crowd.
