Suanne and I went to a new place for lunch. For those of you familiar with the Willingdon/Moscorp area in Burnaby, you might know of where the Orchid Delight Singaporean restaurant used to be. It seems like Orchid Delight had closed and in it’s place is this new Taiwanese Beef Noodle House.
The restaurant is simply called No 1 Beef Noodle House. We were very impressed with the changes that the owner made to the interior. It was very modern and upbeat. The address of this restaurant is 4741 Willingdon Ave, Burnaby. You know, I highly recommend you checking out this restaurant.
What we like about this restaurant was that not only the food was excellent but the price was very OK. The restaurant is clean and the service was prompt. We were surprised how busy the place was even though it was newly opened. There is a wait for tables at the peak of lunch time — very much like what you see in dim sum restaurants on a weekend. The bad thing about this restaurant is that parking is a challenge at peak lunch hour.
BEEF BRISKET NOODLE IN SPICY SOUP
Suanne ordered their popular dish — the Beef Brisket Noodle in Spicy Soup which costs $6.25. There were big chucks of beef brisket which was quite tender. What we like about the way this is served is that they provided a deep wooden spoon — just excellent for slurping the spicy soup.
They served this dish with flat egg noodle. The waitress warned us that it is very spicy but no, it was not as spicy as we expected. You simply MUST try this dish.
EGGPLANT IN GARLIC CHILLI SAUCE WITH MINCED MEAT IN RICE
I ordered a rice dish and chose the Eggplant rice which costs $6.95. The eggplant was surprisingly very delicious in that you can even eat it without rice and still it does not tastes too salty. The dish comes along with two small sides of preserved vegetables.
The serving was large with lots of eggplants. I wish there are more rice. Looking around the other tables I see quite a few other rice dish which looked equally as appealing. I will most certainly come back again and try them out.
