About The Noodist
Chris Micsak (aka The Noodist) is one of the only non-native Chinese hand-pulled noodle chefs trained in China and certified by the Chinese government. In 2008 and 2009, he spent nearly a year living, studying, and working in Beijing and Hong Kong. While living in China, noodles became a go-to meal. Quick, cheap, and easy to find, noodles checked all the boxes for a poor Chinese language student. In addition to being delicious, watching chefs pull the noodles by hand and serve them end up on the table in less than a minute was mesmerizing. Thus, a lifelong obsession with noodles was born. In early 2018, he traveled to Lanzhou, China to train in noodle making, eventually becoming a certified noodle chef. Based in Houston, TX, Chris is excited to bring you traditional Chinese noodles with a Texas twist! BBQoodles is the perfect fusion of Texas BBQ and hand-pulled noodles and we can’t wait to share them with you!
