Quick Lunch at No.1 Beef Noodle House

Instead of bringing a lunch to work, I went out with a few co-workers to the nearby No. 1 Beef Noodle House.

They are currently having an anniversary special where you can order some items,  noodles or select meals, for $5.95 and then add $3 for deep fried squid or chicken, or other items.

I of course went for this special and I picked the sliced beef noodle for $5.95. It was very large and very oily not just due to the broth but also because of the fatty slices of beef. This bowl of noodles was very very filling, and I could barely finish it all. But… unfortunately, I was being a glutton (because I skipped breakfast >.<!) and so I also ordered a few more items.

Yep, I got the $3 salty, peppery chicken! They do give you a lot, and it was nice and warm when I got them. Nicely fried and the coating was yummy! But I didn’t stop here…

I also got a Calpis Green Tea drink ($4.25) to round everything off. It was ok, overly sweet so I probably should have tried to order it half-sweet or asked them to not put as much sugar. For those who don’t know Calpis tastes something like the yogurt drink Yakult. It’s a taste I have loved since elementary because my grandpa used to always treat me to Yakult when I visited.

Overall, the No.1 Beef Noodle House is ok, the service was decent. The drink was a bit too sweet and the beef noodle soup was super oily. I did however, really enjoy the chicken, and so did my parents when I brought my leftovers home…. I never got to see those leftovers again…. I’m not too sure how this compares to other beef noodle places but it was tasty enough for me to return again.
