Yeah it was a dumb mistake on my part yesterday. Ordered the wrong dish at the Green Bamboo Viet Noodles. I know this sounds kind of odd. I did not want to order Vietnamese noodles in a Vietnamese restaurant. I wanted to order TAIWANESE noodles in a VIETNAMESE restaurant. Don’t ask me why. Ask LotusRapper. It was all his fault.
It is another bright blue skies day today. Since I got to office extra early, I think I go have brunch instead. No more meetings for the rest of the day and just need to deal with paperwork mostly. The Green Bamboo opens early at 11AM anyway.
It rained two days ago. So the north shore mountains have new snow. Will not last but I enjoy looking at it.
First customer. Right on the dot at 11AM. Small place right? It can fit 25 people. 30 at a squeeze.
I don’t even need to … look at the menu today. The waitress seems to remember me from yesterday. I said I wanted Taiwanese Beef Noodle. This time she pointed to the right picture on the wall.
“Number 27 right?”
“Yup.” I said and added “also the chicken wings”. I saw the lady customers next to me having that yesterday.
Oh yeah. Looks really good. Steaming soup. The soup is clear. Not “busy” with stuff. Meat looks nice and chunky too. Looks promising.
First act: the soup. It is clear. Flavorful. Not strong though. But nice. Nottingham as strong as Lao Shan Dong for sure.
The noodles chewy. Thinner type. I give this a B+.
The beef. Lots. Nicely done. Lean. But soft. Love it.
I focused on the soup and meat. The noodles are too filling. I still have the wings to tackle.
Caught a small whiff of the wings. Took a closer smell. Nice. No batter. Lightly seasoned. With pepper. Crispy outside. Meat cooked just right.
Have to eat with hands. Greasy though. The pepper bits was what I appreciate with this.
LotusRapper is right. The TBN is good stuff. At least to me. I know there are many variations out there. Some like it differently. This one does it for me. Try it for yourself.
I don’t normally spend so much for lunch. This time it’s because of the wings. Wings was $4.99. The TBN was $6.99.
Here it is … the “LotusRapper Effect” for ya. Last I checked http://lotusrapper.com is still available. But I am gonna keep my mouth shut.
That’s it. Mission accomplished. Fixed yesterday’s boo boo. I can sleep better tonight.
Need to run back to the office pronto. Got a piece of beef stuck between my teeth. Driving me nuts. Dental floss is in my bag. Sorry … gotta run.
