Tender beef noodles at Newton Beef Noodle

I came to Newton Beef Noodles looking for some quality beef noodles. It’s really close to the Richmond Brighouse sky train station which is very convenient. I ordered the half tendon half meat noodles and they were not half bad. The noodles were cooked well (I always prefer thick noodles). The broth was nicely flavoured and rich.

The chicken itself was very moist and well seasoned BUT the rice was a … Continue reading Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Mamalee Malaysian Delight

The soup wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, the meat could have been more tender (some of it was tough to bite through). The noodles … Continue reading Hong Kong Food Mangé’d Part 2
