So what does 爽滑 mean, if anything? And how do these noodles differ from ordinary 拉麵?

Could anyone give me feedback on my tones and pronunciation? I might've had a bit of trouble with the non-aspirated plosives and the short 'a', and in regards to tones I think I started "ling4" too high. Otherwise I think I didn't do too horrible.
