Under mandatory evacuation from the Kincade Fire a few weeks ago, I headed south. I stopped for lunch at Noodle Station in Daly City, a newcomer open for two months. Billed as a "fusion" restaurant, the bilingual menu is in English and Chinese and has a few Southeast Asian style dishes, but I'd consider it firmly in the Chinese camp.

I skipped over the laksa noodles at this new spot, as the friend who tipped me had found them merely okay. For me, the special roast duck with dry noodles, $11.50. The wide egg noodles were moistened in housemade soya sauce and accompanied by a light and cleansing soup on the side. The fresh noodles were very good with firm tooth, well-judged saucing that was not too salty nor too candied. The succulent roast duck with almost crispy skin was quite tasty and served off the bone.

The Jingchuan dumplings (6/$6.50) were fine, drenched in a black vinegar chile-spiked sauce and garnished with lotus root slices and colorful chile peppers. However, I found the pork filling too plain and would have liked to apply the vinegar sauce myself.

Noodle Station is a bright spot in this neighborhood and worth a stop. The dishes were prepared and presented with more care and attention to detail than expected at this price.
