With so many hand pulled noodle shops sprouting up around town, 'Magic Noodle' with its better than average products offering tends to stand out above the rest. Its Scarborough flag ship had been attracting a constant stream of dedicated and loyal fans.
Recently, they have opened up a new Richmond Hill branch at the SW corner of 16th Avenue and Leslie. So far, judging from the long line up at the door, this 'packed to the brim' place is definitely the go-to noodle place for noodle fans in this part of town!
We arrived early for lunch today only to find the place was already full! Wow!! ( see photo! ). Our party of two shared a large bowl of the 'House Special Hand-Pulled Noodle', Fried pancake pocket with leeks and chives and a couple skewers of Cumin crusted Lamb Kebab.
Standard of the products was as good as their Scarborough flag ship store. Our bowl of noodles with beef broth, fried pork cutlet, fried egg, sliced beef, lamb ribs and beef tripe was pretty delectable. The slightly sweet broth was tasty and full of beefy aroma and gamey goodness. Our fine noodles was chosen from a choice of 6 different thicknesses. Texture was al dente but not overly tough and chewy. Filling of the crispy shell pancake was very generous. Juicy and great textural interplay. Lamb Kebab at $1.99 per skewer was a tasty and value for money side dish.
All in all a good meal and the place a welcome addition to Richmond Hill. With so many other dishes to try, I will definitely return. However I might have to wait for this patron tsunami to subside first!
