Bizarre experience with Soup and Noodles (Monkland) today...

Gregoso | Nov 3, 2010 11:03 AM

So I call Soup and Noodles today (482-6262), make my usual order for pickup. At the end of the order, the lady tells me they have moved 5937 Cote-St-Luc Road.

I was a little surprised, but went to the new address anyway. I pull up to the address and it is a restaurant called "Chez Liang," I open the door (carrying 2 baby seats), and I am met with someone from the restaurant tossing out some high school student. I go past the 2nd door and there is about 15 high school students in a small, generic looking space.

Maybe I shouldn't have gone in to pick up the food, seeing as this place wasn't soup and noodles, but I am a firm believer in paying for your order after making it, so those folks don't waste their time, energy, and supplies on making food that is not paid for. Needless to say, I bring the home food and it is terrible. The orange beef is soggy, overly breaded, tough, and barely any orange taste to it, but a mix of some other fruity flavors that I couldn't quite place. Maybe some sort of marmalade was used in the sauce? The black pepper chicken was also tough, overly peppery, and tasted as though it had been cooked in water that has been sitting out for day. The rice was over seasoned, and all mashed together in the centre.

I know Soup and Noodles is not awesome quality stuff, but sometimes it hits the spot. Chez Liang on the other hand, must be avoided at all costs.

So what happened to soup and noodles on Monklad? Did I just call the wrong number and got duped, or was there actually a move / change in ownership or something?
