Beijing Hand-Pulled Noodle House is the newest restaurant along J. Abad Santos st. in San Juan. It’s right beside Tofu store where I buy the best taho.
It’s a small and simply decorated restaurant. I went there around 2 p.m. today that’s probably why the place was empty.
They have an open kitchen where you can watch them make the noodles. Too bad I wasn’t there at the right time.
I took home an order of dry special beef noodle as recommended by the waiter. The noodles were a tad too soft for me but the taste wasn’t bad at all. It was mediocre at best. The beef was very tender though. The serving was very generous for the price of P105.
They gave me some soup on the side. The beef soup was very flavorful and had a clean taste. It was devoid of fat and scum present in some clear soups.

These are lamb dumplings. I’ve never seen lamb dumplings in Manila. They’re pretty common in Beijing since they eat lots of lamb there. I didn’t like the dumplings because of the strong lamb taste. The dough was good and firm but there was too little filling inside. I felt like I was eating flour dumplings. I hope the pork dumplings taste better.
P120 for 15 pieces
Their menu is very limited. I hope they offer more variety in the future. This restaurant isn’t going to garner rave reviews. But if you want a bowl of hot noodle soup that’s tasty and affordable then this restaurant is for you.

I didnt like this place. I ordered the Special Beef Noodles and there isnt anything special about this at all. The noodles was indeed soggy and not uniformed in size, the beef was so tough and the broth was tasteless. Mey Lin’s hand puilled noodles is way better than this place.
