Now, when I see all the lines at Dagu Rice Noodle, I’m like “Why, bro?” I mean, who lines up for soup—especially when you can get the exact same thing at Fudao Noodle House, this funky little joint in Chinatown, for less time and less money. (I liked that other place better back when it was Bareburger!)
So here’s the deal. You pick a broth, and they give you 10 toppings, plus all the noodles you can slurp, for like 10 bucks, bro! And this place has everything: you’ve got shrimp, you’ve got sausage, you’ve got mushrooms, egg and corn, along with the meat in the middle…and it all goes into the pot!
Now me, I went with the shredded pork and pickled cabbage broth, and it was pretty tasty. The meat cooks up real quickly, so you just grab a spoon and dig in! Of course, you’re supposed to grab some chopsticks too, but I never really learned to use those properly…Dude, I would just stick my face in the bowl if it didn’t mess up my spray tan, bro!!!!
