2 new Restaurants Vancouver - Lucky Noodle & Kanpachi - Broadway/Cambie

I've been to Lucky Noodle twice for lunch now. It's in the old Singapore restaurant in the 500 block of W. Broadway. They had 20% off for the month of May for the opening special. I overheard co-workers telling someone to go because it was excellent. The lunch menu is all different types of Asian noodles. The first time I went I had Singapore Cashew Curry which had ribbon rice noodles, wok fried with toasted cashews, coconut milk, peppers, Asian greens, lime, herbs - including cilantro & curry spices. You can get them all with chicken, pork, beef, tofu, prawns or deep fried fish (prawns & fish cost slightly more). I had the fish. Delicious & spicy.

Today I had Thai Style chow mein. It had thin egg noodles, wok fried with sprouts, crushed peanuts, peppers, lime, green onions in a light soy & ginger sauce. I had both pork & fish for an extra $1. My friend had Malaysian Green Curry which he said was excellent & it certainly looked good. At dinner they offer meat, egg & vegetable dishes as well - they deliver too. Prices are all under $10 for the noodle dishes. They have some soups & appys too.

Kanpachi looked like it was going to be expensive. It's where the Russian place used to be, right beside the Mongolie Grill in the 400 block of W. Broadway. It's very nice inside & lunch was cheaper than Sushi Bang! I had a standard lunch box which included Tempura (2 shrimp & veggie), Salmon teryaki, rice, california roll, salad, miso soup, for $6.75! Very reasonable & pretty good. I'd rather sit & have lunch here over Sushi Bang since I'm comparing any day! Quality was better too.
