Excellent New Asian Fusion Restaurant in Chinatown

Chandavkl | Apr 1, 200304:10 PM     4

The first Asian fusion restaurant has opened up in Chinatown. And despite its improbable location, it is quite good and well worth trying. The place is called Asian Noodles and it's at 643 N. Spring, the onetime site of Mandarin back in the 60s and Young Sing in the 1980s. That end of Spring street has really spiraled downwards with many empty storefronts and ghosts of departed Chinese restaurants floating in the air, and would be better suited for buck a plate cuisine based on its proximity to the Chinatown senior citizens home. Imagine finding the space tastefully redecorated in Westside fusion decor. Ambience aside, the Pilipino tinged east/west fare is very good, based on the two dishes we had. The angel hair pasta with sun dried tomatoes was wonderful, excusing the fact it was made with vermicelli. The beef chow fun was also very good, but cooked more in a western than a Chinese style--relatively little oil, and the fun peeled down to a single layer, with cabbage mixed in with the green and white onions. I don't know if they can make it at that location, but it is definitely worth a return visit for me.
