Two years ago, I visited Gene’s Chinese Flatbread Café when it was in Chelmsford. I was not impressed by the flatbreads, but enjoyed the hand pulled noodles, however not enough to make a special trip to Chelmsford. Now, there is a location in downtown Boston and in Woburn center, which is far more convenient to my travels.
The space is larger and has cheerful yellow walls. I got the hand pulled noodles again ($6) and a lamb skewer ($1.5). The noodles are still delicious and toothsome, doused in chili oil, minced garlic and cilantro. I loved the cumin flavor of the tender lamb, although the serving is a little small for the price. They offer chilled noodles only on the weekends and that might be worth a special trip. The food is hearty, unique and affordable. I hope the people of Woburn are open minded enough to embrace this gem.
