Food TV: Making Magic Chinese noodles in Toronto

We visit Haga Gu at Harbord's new Magic Noodle restaurant to make fresh hand-pulled and hand-shaved varieties


Noodles are a staple of Chinese cuisine, woven into the very fabric of the culture. The noodle is a symbol of longevity and are as much a part of a Chinese birthday celebration as a birthday cake. In Chinese tradition, noodles help to keep a meal in harmony – and so there are countless servings of noodles eaten each day around the world.
