o here for the most delicious sesame noodles. They are hand-pulled, chewy threads thickly covered with a peanutty-flavored sauce with a hint of spice to make them that much more memorable. From the outside, Shan Dong looks like almost every other Chinatown storefront, and the interior is fairly nondescript with small two-tops and a few massive round tables with lazy Susans atop a dull tile floor. But the kitchen at the perennially popular and packed restaurant, especially at lunch time, has a real way with noodles. And dumplings. And onion pancakes. And mu shu. And just about everything else from Northern China. Jut put Shan Dong on your go-to list for handmade noodles.
