101 Noodle Express - Review

1st Impression - "C" for "C"hinese - I ain't a scurd of no "C" - my lunch companion on the other hand...

2nd Impression - I can see 1 of the reasons why they earned a "C", the place was swarming with flies including, in the condiments on the table behind us. 1 waitress was gleefully swatting them with a fly swatter. To my surprise, my lunch companion didn't demand that we leave.

3rd Impression - Yes, the beef roll was good, even very good but, wasn't far and away better than most other places. The pan fried shrimp, pumpkin and pork dumplings were pretty bland.

  1. Yeah, that about sums it up for me too. Except the beef roll was bordering on extraordinary when I went...

      we decided to go with the pork roll....heaven! simply heaven! same thing as the beef roll but with pork instead. and not too much hoisin. for dumplings i still prefer noodle house or luscious dumplings. but still worth going for the pork roll!
