Nine Chowhounds got together for noodles and a whole lot more. The menu has a little bit of everything on it, from Malaysian-style red curry to Taiwanese bread stickes to Sichuanese, Shaanxi, Hui, Dongbei.... I am not sure they left out any style of cooking or ingredients! You could eat here for days and not get through half the menu. We ordered:
Cold Noodle Salad
Leek Stuffed Pastry
Intestines, bread, and tofu in a room-temperature broth
Spicy Dry Hot Pot with Chicken
Northern Egg Groovy Noodle Soup
The notable dish which is not easily found elsewhere is the spicy dry hot pot, we got it with chicken. It comes with an assortment of vegetables, but you can also customize it from a long list of other ingredients from seafood and meats to vegetables, tofu and bread. It is dry-cooked and only a bit spicy. This was unique, and I was glad we ordered it.
Other than that, we had a lot of success here but not much is outstanding. I am sure everyone had their own favorites. Since we are in a place named for noodles, I have to say the cold noodle salad did not disappoint, and the enormous bowl of gravy egg noodles was very satisfying in a simple way. The main course intestines were very tasty, so this is a good place if you are into trying that. The cumin lamb slices were deep fried, so that was a nice difference from other places, but maybe it had less lamb flavor.
