Lan Zhou Handpulled Noodle used to be located in a tiny space on East Broadway, and after a brief hiatus and moment of slight panic from its fans, it reopened in a bigger space on Bowery. Now, there’s more room, no waits, and the same excellent dumplings and hand-pulled noodles. The pork dumplings, either steamed or fried, are great, and so are the knife-cut noodles, served either in soup or stir-fried.
