You won’t take much comfort in the setting—harsh light, less-than-nurturing service—but you’ll get all the comfort you could hope for from the steaming bowl of Family Handmade Noodle Soup, with hand-cut noodles and lots of yummy stuff. We also love the pan-fried dumplings, pork or shrimp soup noodle and our kids’ favorite, the “thin onion pancake”—they love these scallion-laced layered pancakes so much they call this place the Crunchy Pancake Restaurant.
