I think this is the Tomato Pumpkin Fish Soup, with Rice Noodles and some Fish Tofu and extra Bean Curd Skin. This is more middle of the road, not too spicy and not too mild. The broth is delicious and and as you can see, the bowl is packed to the rim! This was a weird one for me, probably because I don't really like cooked peanuts, but this is their Peanut Sauce and Chili Soup. Add some Chicken Slices and Fish Balls to your Vermicelli Noodles, and you're set. But the peanut flavour is fairly mild, and you can see the chili's contribution at 12 o'clock. Other than that, there isn't any heat in the soup. This is a the Original Soup again, with some Fish Balls, Fish Tofu and Korean Sweet Potato Crystal Noodles (the ones in Jap Chae). The noodles were really good, but does get quite heavy pretty darn quick. There's no way I could finish this in one sitting. Did I mention that you can add some Sides (maximum of two per noodle ordered)? We decided on some Deep Fried Fish Puffs (4 to an order for just $1.95) . These had a good bounce, nice fishy flavour and a good sear on the outside. We also tried the Pan Fried Pork Chop in Maggi Sauce, simply because I LOVE MAGGI! For $1.75, this was a good addition for the table. And I like that it wasn't overly breaded and pan frying versus deep frying just seems a bit healthier (a bit). pFor our last side dish, we got two orders of their Deep Fried Chicken Wings. You really can't miss with these unless they came out super oily and soggy. Fortunately, this was neither and actually had a nice crispy skin.
For $1.75 for three wings, it's not a great deal (compared to some places serving up $0.25 wings) but I appreciated the lack of breading on these, so that the skin remained flavourful and had a nice natural crunch.
- Long waits during peak hours.
- Go for the food, not for the service.
- As for your hot drink to come at the end of meal so it doesn't cool off while you eat.
