Laser-Focused Xi’an Cook Making The Hell Out Of Noodles By Hand

This short video shows a Chinese cook making a whole lot of a la minute spinach noodles in Xi’an. The big round of dough that he starts with looks like it would be a little intimidating to work with but he has the tools for the job: a 5ft metal rolling pole, a bit of flour, a pair of hands and a badass cleaver. The economy of movement – especially when it comes to cutting and apportioning – is something to behold. While the background noise of the restaurant soothes, only a Hans Zimmer soundtrack will do the guy’s work justice.
