Rating: Noodle fast casual
I’m not sure what this place is actually called, but it’s the noodle joint at the top of this building (nearly 90% sure).
If any of you read Chinese you can tell me the actual name. We stopped in here for a quick late night bite.
It’s popular. A little like a fast casual noodle bar that might be found on Sawtelle or something, just more Chinese. And actually the waiters take your orders — China has no labor problem — but it’s still sort of fast casual.
The menu is simple. Basically stuff on the same noodles.
Plum juice. I love these Chinese plum juices, but this one wasn’t very good. Not very sweet.
Spicy pork and egg noodles. Red and green chilies, shredded pork, omelet, and a bunch of thick noodles underneath. Not bad. Not complex or anything, but greasy and excellent post drinking food.
Pork and mushroom noodles. Same, but less spice, more shroom.
Spicy chicken noodles. Cleaver-ed chicken (with bones, and feet, and beak) with the peppers and the noodles. I’m sure you are sensing a theme.
Shrimp noodles. Shrimp and well… noodles. There seamed to only be one type.
Pea tendrils. In case noodles don’t leave you regular.
This place was quick and had a sort of greasy yummy factor. Not bad for a quick stop but fairly one note — definitely for the youngish crowd.
