Now I’m really hungry.

Look, unless the video comes with a complimentary bowl of steaming noodles, watching the video is merely going to be an exercise in disappointment and hunger.

In case anyone’s interested, there’s a restaurant in Brussels that has its own noodle making lady, working all day near the shop window. It’s called Au Bon Bol (the good cup) and it’s in a dark alley near Bourse.
I once tried to draw her 10 years ago… :blush:

(it’s not very good, I know :wink:)

I know, and it’s not even time for breakfast yet.

Man, that roast duck over cut noodles looks good. It all looks so good.

I learned to hand-pull my noodle as a teenager.

The difference here is, nobody is willing to pay to see you do that, even if you have invested a lifetime of practice and mastered your craft.

The Japanese guy talks too much shit, I had to stop watching.

The Kung Fu Panda DVD extras had a video about noodle making that I watched super often with my kids when they were young.

I was inspired enough to try making noodles at home. they were edible, but not an unqualified success

Not noodles, but it made me think of this.
