In 1919, Ma Baozi opened his first restaurant in the city and lead to eventual growth of thousands of beef noodles restaurants in Lanzhou. Due to Lamian dough is made by hand, the process involved taking a lump of dough and repeatedly stretching it to produce many strands of thin, long noodle. There are several styles of twisting the dough but they all employ the same concept:  A piece of dough is repeatedly stretched and folded onto itself in order to align the glutens and warm up the dough for stretching.  Then it is rolled out to a workable thickness and cut into workable portions. The end pieces of the starting dough are never used because the glutens are not as aligned as the middle pieces.  This dough is then pulled to about an arm span's length. The puller then makes a loop with the dough, joining the two ends into one clump of dough, and inserts his fingers into the loop to keep the strand from sticking to itself.  This process is repeated several times until the desired thickness and quantity is achieved.
