Beefy Beef Noodle House

After watching the Wheelchair Curling semi-finals, my friends and I wandered down to Main Street to see what lunch options awaited us. Someone had mentioned that there was a No. 1 Noodle House that had opened up at Main and King Edward, and we all eagerly went in search for some Taiwanese beef noodle soup to warm us up. When we arrived, John and I were surprised to see that the restaurant was in fact Beefy Beef Noodle House, a place we had made fun of previously while wandering Main because of it’s strange name and the fact that the sign above the restaurant literally read “Beefy Beef Noodle House: Salty Peppery Chicken”. But the restaurant inside was actually quite nicely decorated – very similar to the No. 1 in Burnaby. I was extremely pleased about this connection, since I love the salty peppery chicken, and thus declared my lunch order without hesitation before we even got our table. We had a great waitress who knew all the items on the menu, so when I said “A10″, she repeated back to me what the item was. We then tested her knowledge with all our orders and only stumped her once.

A10 - $7.25

The Crispy Salty Peppery Chicken and Noodle in Soup is a delicious dish for anyone looking for some deep fried goodness. The noodles comes in a clear broth that is a perfect complement to the chicken, although I required plenty of water to even out the MSG.

A01 - $6.95

The beef brisket noodle in soup is also a regular item at the Noodle House, so J went with his favourite choice. I say the food here is very comparable to its sister restaurant – the beef was delicious and the soup was very thick and flavourful. and actually enjoy it here a little bit better since there’s much more seating room and a lot less noisy. My friend C and I decided to split a five spice beef in Chinese pancake as well.

F02 - $5.50

This was quite good as well – I’m never a fan of raw green onions so I had to pick out the ones in the middle since the roll otherwise is too strong for me, but the whole pancake had just the right amount of sauce and held together quite well. I do wish the pancake itself was a bit more crispy though. Overall, I’m happy I finally got to try this place since the other location is much further away from me and not as easily accessible by transit. And since I always crave crispy salty peppery chicken, I have a feeling I’ll be heading back here a few times in the near future. Now to find a good place that makes deep fried squid tentacles close to the downtown core. Mmmm…
