After the gym today I came home exhausted, hungry & hungry. That kinda scares monkey boy. Hungry is never pretty, especially coming from me. See this. Well anyways, he said I can eat anything I want… soooo I made him drive to Burnaby. What I wanted was a hot bowl of spicy beef noodle. I heard about LSD supposedly having the best beef noodle in all of Vancouver.. gotta try this!!
Braised Beef Flank with Noodle In Spicy Soup ($6.95): I really love their broth! It’s not as spicy as I thought it would be coming from a Taiwanese restaurant. With reference to Bubble world, their spicy beef noodle is x10 spicier. Annnyways, I’m very picky like that. If you love your spicy I’d recommend letting them know!! The beef flank is okay.. some bites were dry. The noodles nothing special. However like I said, the broth is delicious. I slurped it all!!
Braised Beef Flank And Tendon with Noodle In Soup/Spicy ($8.50): I really don’t understand why the tendon would cost an extra $2, that’s kind of weird.. I didn’t try any of Monkey’s boy tendons but he said it was good.
I’d give the beef noodles at least a 8.5/10. Which is pretty good. Lack of spiciness for the “spicy bowl” and dry meats gave it away!
Restaurant is fairly new. Perhaps they just renovated. It’s hard to believe they’ve been around for over 50 years! The restaurant is brand spanking new.
We drove past the restaurant twice. They’re hidden behind “CATTLE CAFE”. Just look for cattle cafe next time..
The menu (picture above) is full of wonderfulness. I thought it was so cute and amazing of them to quote “Don’t count the days, make the days count”. Exactly what I needed to hear!
