Chongqing Noodles (xian mian), small size, $9.80. It's the noodles that makes this dish, chewy and not too dense. The sauce is filled with chillis that coat the noodles with a bright red sheen evidenced by your bright red lips at the end of the meal.
We're never quite sure of the broth eating etiquette with these soups - is it slurp it all down or leave it behind when you've finished the noodles? It's quite pungent and oily to help coat the noodles in flavour, not like a regular lighter soup broth. But aren't the blue striped bowls great?
Pig intestine noodle soup, spicy. Regular $10.80. The broth in this soup is lighter and therefore bowl finishable. It still has a nice heat to it from a different style of fatter cut chillis. The pork bits are good and chewy with that unmistakable intestine fragrance.
Noodle soup with yellow pea paste, $10.80 for a small. Go the chilli, it's not too hot. Pretty much the same base as the Chongqing style, but served with a mild split pea mix that's like dahl, and a generous ladle of pork mince.
Pick your own selections from the 'fill it in yourself' menu. You can add extra braised pig intestines if you desire for only $3.
