Noodle Island Ancient Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup
Hearing J. Gold rave today made me head right out, but it was a disappointment. The much lauded Ancient Ginger Chicken Noodle soup tasted to me like the smell in a Chinese herbalist store congealed into a soup (not surprising I guess in light of the bags of wizened ginger you often see in them) but, anyway, definitely an acquired taste that I'm not going to.
The Crossing the Bridge noodle soup was better and had a nice assortment of mushrooms, and the sliced chicken gizzard cold appetizer was alright too (although had one flavor that I cannot identify that I was not partial too) but I don't think I'll be back with Luscious Dumplings just across the street.
