Stop by Huangcheng Noodles for a taste of Shanxi province - specifically their shaved noodles. Owner Jimmy Huang, a former acrobat, used to hand shave the noodles, but now uses a machine to deliver consistently thick noodles and a chewy consistency. After their original space closed from a devastating 2020 fire in Chinatown, Oakland organization Good Good Eatz helped him land a new space in Old Oakland. Our founder Jocelyn Tsaih and team member Maya Kulkarni then helped to redesign their logo and painted a mural bringing a bit of Jimmy’s bright personality to the space. Their take on classic tomato egg noodles hits all the bright, slightly smoky flavors you get from a well-fired wok.
