是真好吃好香的和好好辣的。 是在86 Super Star.



菜單有好多的麵條選 都是湯的。 





如果你得有好的辣椒會吃飯你就要到86 super star 式一大碗麵。





For the English readers, I offer this:

The location is Bay Parkway and 86 intersection.

I had planned to eat at the famed Turkish place called Istanbul, as this was my intent on arriving to this location.

For some reason, something told me to remove myself from the Istanbul establishment, and this happened before I ordered, affording me the unexpected, as I was determined to eat.

I wandered in the direction of this 86 Super Star, just beyond the intersection after crossing the street in front of Istanbul, and ended up walking in.

Instead of large skewers clumped with meats, or hummus and grape leaves, set before me, I had a bowl of noodles with thin skinned wonton of the pork variety. The noodles were thin, but not of the vermicelli kind.

Just a bowl of noodles you might say. well, their hot sauce was spectacular. I had not found a Chinese venue with house made hot sauce so good, in a very long time.

The chef is from Guangzhou, and I was told by the staff there that he is quite well known in Guangzhou.

Speaking of which, one would have to spend some time to find such a delicious hot sauce even in Guangzhou. Really.

The qualities of a truly good hot sauce is that the salt is not too much (not too salty), and there is no sugar. It needs to give you a sweat (汗) also.

I used two small bowls of it. As I left, and walked even 5 minutes after leaving the restaurant, my mouth was still in delight of the flavor.

Super Star 86 has a nice interior, and hot pot cookers in front of all seats. Their hot pot I can only imagine is perhaps quite good.

I recommend this place to the hot sauce lovers! and Chinese food lovers too.

Noodle bowls (most are 5.75) are the soup variety, with beef, chicken, lamb, shrimp, wonton, shrimp dumpling, shrimp ball (7.95), beef ball, fish ball, mixed ball, and a vegetarian at 3.75.
