On Boxing day morning, we went out early as Nanzaro wanted to shop for his stuff.
The good thing about waking up early is to be able to watch a spectacular sun rise.
We went to Metrotown to shop. It was very crowded as the Chinese saying “people mountain people sea”.
After walking for hours, we went across the street to have lunch. Initially, we wanted to go to Cattle Cafe but there was a line waiting for table. So, we changed our destination to Lao Shan Dong. It was just a short wait for a table.
Lao Shan Dong used to be a very popular place but there are many competitive restaurants in the same area now.
We ordered an appetizer to munch while waiting for our noodles. The spicy bamboo shoot was crunchy and mildly spicy. I like the texture.
Ben and I shared a large Beef Flank and Tendon Noodle Soup. The meat and tendon was very tender.
The large was really large. The diameter of the bowl is a wide as the length of the chopstick. Both of us could not finish it.
Nanzaro ordered the Dry Noodle with Special Beef Sauce. He ordered the small bowl bu some how came as a large bowl. Again, it was too much noodle and he too had some left over.
Lao Shan Dong only accepts cash.
