"Silk Road" - Amazing 'Uyhur' Lamb Soup Noodle that deserves special stand alone review!!

Charles Yu | Apr 19, 2013 07:33 PM

Located on Horner Avenue in the middle of no where, this genuine hole-in-the-wall, family run Uyhur Noodle House, is the proud recipient of one of '2013 GTA Chinese Restaurant 10 Best Dishes Award'.
Today, I made a special drive all the way out west to see what the hype was all about! I was so glad I made the trip!!
I ordered the award winning ' Uyhur hand-cut noodle in lamb soup ' and a few sticks of Cumin crusted B-B-Q Lamb skewers.
First, the noodle. I never knew such a great noodle product exist in Toronto!! It was 'out of this world' good!! The broth was so flavorful and complex. An umami galore! Topped with chopped herbs ( scallions, cilantro and parsley ) and home made chili oil, these mixture formed a killer aromatic and taste combo. The large quantity of 'melt in the mouth tender' lamb spare-ribs oozes out an unfamiliar but extremely pleasant fragrance. All in all, a fantastic bowl of noodle that trumps a good bowl of Vietnamese Pho any day. A new and memorable eating experience for me!
BTW, at $1.99 a stick, the nicely seasoned, tender and smoky delicious Lamb b-b-q skewer was, IMO. a steal!!
