The folks that run Face2Face certainly know what they are doing. They hit the ground running with a well worked-out menu and system, the staff are super cheery and the noodles are top notch.
The noodles are made in front of your very eyes with this dandy looking roller thingy...
...then sliced ready to go.
Chinese five spice pork intestines noodle soup ($10.80). If you like that poo-ish intestiney flavour then you will love this soup, the funky flavours add a solid base to pile up with chili and Sichuan pepper.
Pork mince with pea noodle soup - $10.50. Another spicy soup prettied up with peas. As with all the soups here you can get a free refill on the noodles. We've always been happy with a single serve but it's nice to know it's there.
Mr Wang's spicy smoked sausage ($6.80) is a must-try, a firm meat spicy sausage that reminds us very much of chorizo.
Chinese five spice beef noodle soup - $10.80. The five spice flavour is lost in the fiery broth. It's an oily style of broth which puts a wonderful coating on the noodles, it's not a slurping kind of broth. The beef is rich and mouth-melty tender.
Chicken mushroom soup noodle - $10.80. The one non-spicy soup on the menu is a winner, a clean and seemingly simple broth, we'll be back for this one when we feel like a cleansing soup.
Face2Face menu is short'n'sweet so every dish is most likely a winner.
Face2Face is in the glorious Dixon House Food Court, in the corner bunker of Little Hay and Dixon Streets, Haymarket/Chinatown.
