Finally made it down to Chinatown to get some specialty ingredients and stopped off for lunch.

This place is known for their hand pulled noodles and their dumplings. The dumplings were so good that I got a bag of them to take home.

Lan Zhou Hand Pulled Noodles and Dumpling.  They're on Bowery about a block south of Canal.  They used to be on East Broadway in a much smaller space, but have moved maybe a year ago to the current location.  There's a window in the back of the dining room where you can watch the guy pulling a huge skein of noodles... didn't get a photo of it though.  The dumplings are amazing, and the noodles had great texture, but I thought the broth was under seasoned - but that's easily rectified by the jar of homemade chili oil, and bottles of black vinegar and soy sauce on each table...

I was so taken by the freshness, size and price (75 cents each) of the local (Noank, CT) oysters I bought for dinner yesterday, that I made another trip to my go-to fish market this morning. They had gotten a fresh delivery and I was able to choose from an excellent collection buried in the ice today. These were bigger and fresher still! Noank Blue Points and Dogs and Boats makes the sun shine, in spite of this cold and rainy day. I even got out the ice shaver and put them on a bed of the stuff.
