I’ve heard good things from two friends about North Noodle House. They usually come here for food before seeing a movie. They’re located in the New Westminster skytrain station (top floor) beside Bobacabana.
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 1:00pm). The inside is small with three tables and 3 high chairs to people watch the commuters (17 seats total). The two larger tables are communal so be ready to share with strangers. Service is decent and food comes out quickly.
The menu consists of Northern specialities, noodles (fried, soup, sauce and flavored), wonton & dumplings, fried pancake, cold dishes, snacks and desserts. You can request the type of noodles you want (either hand dragged or cutting).
Love that they give you baby scissors to cut your noodles; first Chinese spot I’ve seen that’s done that. About time!
No idea why it’s so pricey because you don’t get that much chicken pieces. Speaking of the chicken, wow, it was incredibly salty. At least the noodles had a toothsome, chewy bite but even that couldn’t save this dish.
Lan Zhou beef noodle soup ($9.98)
Have had Lan Zhou at numerous places and this one was okay. Standard noodles and very thin beef pieces. The broth was salty; reminded us of sea water. Yikes. Clearly, someone in the kitchen has a heavy hand on the salt seasoning.
Beef slices were excellent and retained its bite.
Salty, salty, salty. Couldn’t get over it. Merely average noodles at NNH.
