La Mian at Shangri-La

Lamian/La Mian, which is the name of the event,  is also a variety of Chinese noodles. These style of noodles are made by twisting, stretching and folding the dough into strands by utilizing the weight of the mixture. The length and density of the strands depend on the number of times the dough overlaps and Shangri-La has brought in an expert in this style of cuisine to Chiang Mai.


Shangri-La Chiang Mai is hosting an intriguing culinary event that is happening throughout the next four days. Lucky to be invited to the event, we had a sneak preview of this menu before it is available to the public. It was a full-on show and experience to see Chef Quan work his magic and create this noodles by hand. The countertop was dusted liberally with flour. He then immediately began to work stretching and bending while gently but firmly flinging the dough against the counter. We witness the chef produce hand pulled, sliced, flat and biang biang noodles


As incredible as it was the see the theatrics of the noodle making process it was even better to savor them. I consumed the hand-pulled noodles with the Lobster sauce. It was tasty and somewhat spicy but full of flavor. The noodles are prepared flawlessly, but my only complaint is that I wanted more!

Chef Wang Quan from Shangri-La Hotel Xian will be at Shangri-La Chiang Mai showing off his La Mian noodle making skills from July 11th – 15th. If you are a fan of Chinese cuisine and noodles, in general, you will not want to miss this event.
