T Noodle ~ Chinese - Haymarket / Chinatown

Chongqing noodle houses are cropping up everywhere in Chinatown. It seems like xian mian is the new noodle favourite, and we are big fans. T-Noodle in the Prince Centre is one of the latest batch cranking out these hot chilli and Sichuan pepper popping noodles.

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.

T Noodle is at the Prince Centre, Shop TG 3, 8 Quay St Chinatown, next to Chinese Noodle House.

  1. So good. Compare and contrast Spicy China, the newish Sichuan place on Druitt - noodle soups at lunch, broader menu at dinner.
