21 Taste House Grill & Noodle Cuisine opened about a week ago on Ocean Avenue near City College. It features grilled meats, rice plates, and, of most interest to me, a large selection of Yunnan rice noodle dishes. It seems to have become an instant success with students.
I visited today and had a bowl of Yunnan rice noodle soup with lamb shoulder slices and a kimchi appetizer. I found the soup a little on the bland side and the noodles overdone, but the latter may be due to the fact that the place is still adjusting to its popularity. It was totally slammed, even after 1:00 today.
