A tad of help with Joe's (Noodle House)?

Dennis S | Jul 13, 2009 04:47 PM

I stopped at Joe's Noodle House yesterday. I used to be able to order well there. Something's happened.

I got the N36, which I do like and came as expected. I got some cold dishes to go for dinner tonight.

First - has their beef jerky declined in quality? The HKP version is always good, but I thought I learned of this dish at Joe's. The confusion may be on me, but I'm checking.

Second - I wanted the cold noodle dish with the red oil only. I can order this correctly everytime at HKP but the last two times at Joe's I end up with the wrong thing. Last time I had the oil, but also this brown paste that I did not like. This time I tried to be very clear in saying I wanted the noodles with the red oil only - none of the brown paste. I only got the brown paste.

I also messed up by not ordering the crispy salty *anything* but that's also clearly on me.

Mainly - for the cold noodles - what am I missing, or what has changed? What dish (by number) am I looking to order?
