"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
I believe this video is part of the bonus content on the "Kung Fu Panda" DVD. I've watched it a few times.
Host is Alton Brown - of Food Network's Good Eats and Iron Chef America - and author of several great books. His "hook" is food science. And tongue-in-cheek commentary.

The name of this type of noodle in Chinese is literally "pull noodle".
yeah this was definitely from Kung Fu Panda. great taste! I had to have watched that 10 times. If only it was actually as simple as it looks...
Having lived six years in Japan, one year in Korea, spent a summer in Taiwan, and visited Hong Kong several times, I've seen similar demonstrations before. It is always fascinating. Somebody commented that this type of noodle is called "pull noodle." "Pull noodle" is, of course, la mian "拉麺" in Chinese Mandarin; lo mein "拉麺" in Cantonese; ramen "ラーメン, らーめん, or 拉麺" in Japanese; or ramyeon "라면 or 拉麺" in Korean. They can be delicious in any language.
