My Favorite Video

“Marco is a master of a dying art—kneading the dough for bamboo noodles with a bamboo pole. If you walk by his family’s Kwan Kee Bamboo Noodle shop in Hong Kong, you might see him at work, bouncing up and down like a seesaw as he pounds the dough. It’s physically tiring, but Marco says the technique makes noodles that are chewier, springier and tastier.”
