Chowfind of the Millennium: Noodle Face - Authentic Beijing Flavours!

JonasBrand | Feb 26, 2014 07:41 PM

If you are interested in a taste of Beijing (something a student at Peking University would have for lunch) check out (the oddly named) Noodle Face Co at 41 Baldwin Street.

I had lunch with the SO here today. We ordered the first two dishes on the menu, Guangong beef noodle soup ($8) and Dandan noodle soup ($8).

The portions were very generous, a large bowl filled to the brim with all natural broths, noodles, sliced beef / ground pork respectively, and some bok choy.

More impressive than the portions, the clean flavours came through as nuanced! You can taste the homemade goodness.

We slurped the bowls to the very last drop (finishing the broth is something I'm never tempted to do just down the street at Kinton Ramen).

A couple tips... my dandan was very spicy (supposedly medium, but honestly a bit too much punch - consider mild even if you like spicy, as I do). The jasmine tea ($2) and black milk tea ($2), were high quality but too strong / tannic for our palates.

We'll definitely be back to explore more of the menu :P

* Pardon the title's hyperbole, I couldn't resist Vinnie... this is a family run spot that I think deserves some attention!
