Ajea Noodle in Yaohan Foodcourt, Richmond

Ben and I went to do groceries shopping at Yaohan. We stopped by the food court to grab a light dinner.

We decided to try the new noodle shop, Ajea Noodle.

This is how it works. You get to choose your broth base; we went with the spicy broth at medium spiciness. Then you pick the ingredient and we opted for braised beef. The small cube beef was tender.

You then pick the noodles. We opted for the traditional thin noodles. Our bowl of noodle came to CAD10. You can be lavish by adding more other ingredients. We enjoyed the noodles.

 

NamNam Noodle on Main St., Vancouver

It’s TGIF. Ben picked me up from work and we made it a Friday dine out night to start the weekend.

We drove to Main St. to look for a dine out place. We could not decide where to eat and was thinking maybe we will revisit Hawker’s Delight. When we walked towards Hawker’s Delight, we noticed a new restaurant just a few doors away. So, we changed our plan and went to NamNam Noodle.

The poster seems inviting enough for us with a reasonable price. Continue reading

Chu Resto in Aberdeen Foodcourt, Richmond

Ben and I went to Aberdeen Foodcourt to try the first Wu Han hot dry noodles in Metro Vancouver. This location is the fifth one in Canada.

When we were there, there is no line up at all.

Ben ordered the signature dry noodles which came with a small bowl of broth.

The signature dry noodles is heavy in sesame paste and is garnished with green onions, cilantro and some pickled vegetables. We had to add a lot of chili oil to add some spiciness to it. We also added some broth to thin out the sauce so that the noodles are not so clumpy.

Credit card is accepted here.

Besides noodles, Chu Resto also serves marinated appetizers.
