Noodle Kingdom ~ North Chinese - Adelaide Chinatown



With over 100 amazing dishes on the menu, Adelaide's Noodle Kingdom is like the Magic Kingdom for food nerds.





Our second night of eating Adelaide brings us back to the Chinatown \ Central Market area. It's fairly lively on a Saturday night, a fun place to be.



Noodle Kingdom is our pick: it's cheap with a very interesting Northern Chinese menu. We could spend months working our way through the 100+ items on the menu here, but alas we only have one night... Noodle Kingdom is like a slightly fancier version of Sydney's amazing Silk Road, plus alcohol, minus ceiling grapes.



Harbin Chinese Beer - alrighty.



Beef skewars with cummin - $12.80 for six skewars. We're big fans of North Chinese skewars and these are some of the best we've had. The meat isn't as 'well done' as most places, it has a chew to it but still has some juice in the middle. Excellent.



Best of all the skewars are covered with mixtures of peanuts and shallots, an ingenious and delicious twist.



Alison nurtures her offal obsession with a side of Pig Tripe, $4. It is served cold in chili oil.-Great value if you can stomach it, pun intended, sorry.



Another most interesting side dish - Pickle and Peas - $4. Pickled vegetables with fresh soy beans.



Out of curiosity I order 'Bean Jelly from North-West of China' - $4. Served in peanut sauce with fresh grated veggies.



The bean jelly is in thick cut slabs, the cool plain flavour and jelly texture works well in the sweet peanut sauce.

  1. Oh I love picture menus! I wish all places like that had them, would make ordering so much easier... or harder.
