Shaolin Noodle House – Hand-Cut Noodles
Shaolin Noodle House is a fairly spacious restaurant located on West Broadway. While the joint wasn’t too busy when I visited on a Friday before noon, the lunch crowd soon filled the place up with hungry patrons.
The Shaolin Beef Rolls ($6.95) had a crispy exterior and the green onions added the right amount of sharpness for each bite. However, I feel like it could have used a bit more sweetness from the hoisin sauce to even it out. Overall, pretty tasty but not super meaty.
You can’t come here without trying one of their noodle dishes so I ordered the Fried Cutting Noodles with Cumin Lamb ($10.95). Seriously one of the best noodle dishes that I’ve had! The hand-cut noodles add character with the variable length and thickness ensuring that each strip of noodle was unique. Honestly, I would have preferred if the veggie that was included in the dish was something other than broccoli but that might be just nitpicking. The “medium” spiciness is not very spicy but they do have hot sauce at the table so you can kick it up a notch.
Overall, well worth the visit to try their noodles.
