Excellent beef meat/tendon noodles at Queen House

Vincent Lo | Jul 3, 200506:53 AM     2

I was trying to have lunch at Sushi Tomi in downtown Mountain View on a weekday, but I got there at 2:05 and they were already closed for business.

I walked to Queen House instead, and ordered their beef meat/tendon noodles for $5.95. There were still quite a few people walking in after I was seated. I waited (impatiently but trying not to show) 20 minutes for my bowl of noodles to arrive, and the lady apologized for the delay. The soup was a bit spicy; the lady did ask me for my spiciness preference, before I spent a couple of seconds to figure out how to say a little bit of hotness was okay in Mandarin.

The soup was flavorful without being too salty or greasy -- I know this starts to sound like Melanie's review of Queen House Ramen, and there was a satisfying quantity of decent noodles with beef stew and tendon. The meat was quite tender. The overall quality of the food was quite a bit higher than I had expected, as most restaurants in downtown Mountain View aren't that great, especially the Asian ones, except my beloved Sushi Tomi of course.
