Kung Fu Noodle

It’s been ages since I’ve been to a Kung Fu Noodle (their other locations are downtown and UBC). I’ve walked by this KFN but never been in for a bite. They’re located close to Peaceful Restaurant.

They have daily specials but it’s only advertised outside. No mention of it elsewhere.

We dropped in for a late Thursday dinner (around 9:00pm). There was about half a dozen people but it was essentially dead. There’s 8 tables and a couple seats in front of the noodle master (for a total of 36 seats). Service is better than the norm; our waitress refilled teas several times.

Menu is split into sides, chef specials, combo, mix noodle/chow menu/rice, clay pot noodle, noodle soup and house special/dim sum/drinks.

Condiments on the table included soy sauce, vinegar and chili sauce.

Lan Zhou stretched noodle ($8.95)
DSC02640The broth is excellent; clean, fragrant and sweet. The slices of beef were tender. Noodles are thin and a tad soft for my liking but they’re made fresh and pulled to order.

Braised ribs noodle ($9.95)
DSC02642Broth was similar to the Lan Zhou bowl. The braised ribs were disappointingly dry/overcooked.

Tomato & pumpkin beef brisket noodle ($9.95)
DSC02648Pumpkin, choy, cilantro and beef brisket. The noodles were slightly thicker than the first two bowls. Enjoyed these ones the most. They really soaked up the broth. Beef brisket was tender yet still retained its bite. Broth was light but sweet; unfortunately, it was salty.

Lamb dumplings ($9.95 for 12)
DSC02644These were delightful! Lamb with a mix of diced carrots was fantastically gamey. Fresh, good texture to the wrapper and good meat ratio.

Will have to request the thickest noodle next visit!
