Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle (Aberdeen)
Aberdeen Centre has some really good eats. If it weren’t for all of the crazy people in the parking lot, we’d probably be here more often. On one visit, we decided to try a Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle.
Who exactly is Chef Hung?
As it turns out, it’s a chain of noodle houses that originated in Taiwan back in 1995. Since that time, they’ve opened a number of outlets and have won awards for their signature beef noodle soup.
In the front of this restaurant, they have a mechanical display of a bowl of noodles… you can’t miss it. And the restaurant is divided by a row of large bamboo poles.
Before our meal, we ordered a Passionfruit Green Tea and Hawaii Tea ($4.80 each). The Hawaii Tea was a pretty good mix of pineapple and peach flavour. The drinks come conveniently packaged so you can take them to go afterwards if you don’t finish it.
The Beef Shank and Tripe Noodle Soup ($11.45) was our main reason for visiting. The noodles, as expected, had a nice, toothsome texture while the tripe was melt-in-your-mouth tender. The beef itself wasn’t as tender as the tripe but it was still good nonetheless.
We also ordered the Marinated Beef Wraps ($8.45) which had a generous amount of meat inside the pancake wrap. I just wish that there was some more sauce to go along with it.
Lastly, we ordered the Pork, Shrimp and Chive Dumpling ($8.95). This was a winner with a supremely smooth wrapper and tender filling. It comes with a side of vinegar sauce that you can add to the soup.
So, is this the best noodle house in Vancouver? Well, all I can say is that I wouldn’t mind coming back for a revisit… even if I have to endure the crazy drivers in the parking lot.
