Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles



My colleagues brought me to this place they've been visiting a lot lately: Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles.



Kanzhu wasn't crowded by the time we arrived. I've noticed that most of the customers are, well, Chinese.  The kitchen is viewable by the customers that you can watch the staff create noodles from fresh dough. :)



One of the things that my lunch buddies were looking forward to is the free appetizer.


I'm not sure what it's really called but it's sweetened nuts with sesame seeds. And it was so good that Kanzhu sells it in jars. I should've brought home a jar. Well, maybe next time.

A friend ordered a cold appetizer, Black Fungus with Jellyfish (Php 80)

It was a bit sour compared to the ones I've tried in another Chinese restaurant.

Good thing we also ordered dumplings, Pork and Chive Dumplings (Php 85 for 7 pieces)

Pork and Chive Dumplings

You may have the dumplings either fried or steamed, we chose to be a little healthy and ordered steamed. :) It was really flavorful, and reminded me of the Xiao Long Bao of Shi Lin. I'd love to order this one again, but for solo this time.
Since it was my first visit, I was strongly advised by my friend to try the Braised Beef Dry Noodles (Php 150), which is one of their bestsellers. I was really against the idea since I'm all for a rice meal during that time, but I took his advice and wasn't disappointed.


Braised Beef Dry Noodles

I have a huge bias on beef and I could say that the braised beef was really, really tender. The sauce goes well with the noodles too. The serving is just right for me (well, I wasn't able to finish the noodles). This is really a must-try when you visit Kanzhu.

To finish our meal, we ordered Sesame Butchi (Php 50 for 3 pieces).

It was served piping hot that I almost burned my tongue. (haha) The sweetness of the filling is just right. Their butchi is quite big too! :)

For freshly-prepared yet really affordable noodle dishes, Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles is one place you should visit. I'm not really critical when it comes to service, but I hope they'll improve on their service. But overall, I give Kanzhu two thumbs up.

I hope I could visit again and try their other noodle dishes.

  5. I noticed the food wasn't so pricey and it's authentic Chinese food I guess. Do they have a branch here in Cebu?

  8. The black fungus with jellyfish doesn't sound too appetizing by name. However, it's something I want to try just because it's different. :) I like braised beef especially if their tender like you said. :)
