Tingly, thick, and chewy

Biang Biang noodles are for ravenous cravings of noodles and a chock-full of spice. In other words, it’s for the adventurous and playful. Picking up a strand of the single noodle, you’ll see and feel how hefty it is, lifting it from your bowl to pull up. It’s thick and wide, the way I like my noods. They’re hand-pulled and ripped, and righteously chewy. A couple of hand-cut strands fills you up quickly, especially because they have a generous lathering of spicy oil and seasonings. Biang Biang is spicy and spice-full, hence the common ‘tingly’ nickname given to these broad strands of noodles. It’s a fiery flavor bomb in every bite!

Pilya’s Kitchen currently offers three types of biang biang noodle dishes. There’s Tingly Cumin Lamb (P450), Tingly Cumin Beef Dry (P380), and the Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup (P390). The noodle soup is a good introduction to biang biang with less funk, the broth comforting while still giving you heat. However, if you want the full funky and fiery experience, get the lamb — a personal favorite!

Other Noods and Foods

Other dishes available at Pilya’s Kitchen are Tingly Cumin Shiitake Mushrooms and Tofu (P370), Spicy Pork Dan Dan Noodles (P380) with thin noodles, Braised Pork Chinese Burger (P220), Pork and Shrimp Dumplings (P180, 5 pieces), and Spicy Smashed Cucumbers (P120). If you’re seeking less spice and spicy, go for the dumplings. The spicy cucumbers will add extra zing and crunch to pair with your biang biang. Additionally, if you still can take the heat, you may request extra chili oil to get your tastebuds tingling even more.
