This website grew out of a meeting of two foreigners in the beautiful Chinese coastal city of Qingdao, who discovered a shared passion for those special noodles known throughout China as "Lanzhou la mian". Rudi and Dave would adjourn each Monday evening at various la mian restaurants in the city for their weekly fix and ponder over a possible outlet for their passion short of a pilgrimage to the la mian mecca of Lanzhou itself....and hence this website was born.

La Mian (拉面) are Chinese "pulled noodles" - la (拉) meaning to pull or stretch, while mian (面) are wheat noodles. The Lanzhou variety is distinguished by its special beef or lamb broth which is then laced with slices of beef (or lamb) and usually garnished with green coriander and/or white radish. Learn about its History and check the Recipe section to see how la mian is made.

Now you might be thinking…isn't Qingdao a long way away from Lanzhou? Yes, about 2246km to be precise. But as testament that la mian is renowned right across China from its far north-west Muslim areas to the Yellow Sea in the east, Qingdao - as do most cities and towns in China - has hundreds of these little restaurants.

So we have gone ahead and done the obvious thing - create a website with Reviews of various la mian eating options in Qingdao - mostly around the Shi Nan district (市南区), as this is where both we and the majority of foreigners spend their time, however we have also some from the Shi Bei district (市北区) too. Check the Map to find the nearest la mian restaurant to you then click on it to see the review.

The quality of the la mian on offer is the most important factor affecting our ratings, however we also take into account the general atmosphere of the restaurants, and the friendliness of the families who run them. To be sure, there are a lot more dishes on offer than just 拉面- check the Menu section for a snapshot. Below each review there is a comment section for you to make your own assessment of your eating experience.

If you like 拉面and you live in Qingdao or are visiting, we are sure this site will be of use to you!

A special note: While most restaurants are surely in the very locations shown on this site and with the same families still running them, we can not always guarantee that the exact same personnel are taking charge of the hand-pulling responsibilities or soup concoctions – the reality being that these restaurants are invariably run by large family networks and God only knows how many, and which, brothers, uncles, aunties, sons, cousins and nephews have been traversing back and forth from east (Shandong province) to west (Gansu/Qinghai provinces) in order to maintain their family’s small stake in the vast nationwide la mian empire. We would therefore certainly appreciate your help in reviewing your 拉面experiences and/or updating any of the information, by adding to the comments section found on the review pages.
