So, after reading so many good things about this place, I tried it with a few friends about a month ago... and was completely underwhelmed (and so were the friends). Well, they have a large menu, so maybe we mis-ordered. Willing to give the benefit of the doubt, I tried again at lunch today. Got noodles with pork and black bean sauce. All I could taste was soy sauce and spring onion. No discernable meat or bean flavor. The noodles had a decent texture, but otherwise the dish was a loss.
What gives? Why do you like Joe's so much? And can you point me in the direction of some "must-try" dishes before I give up altogether? Many thanks.
