Noodle Town - Hurstville - Sydney, Australia.

Noodle Town

This restaurant has been open for many years. I've walked past on it on many occasions, regularly stopping at this station on my way home. It is located within Hurstville Central Shopping Centre, which houses Hurstville train station. Finding any information on this restaurant on Google has been a major struggle as there is basically nothing on it, hence my delay in going to the place.

As their name suggests, they specialise in noodles but also have a range of other Chinese Cantonese dishes and options such as dumplings, rice, wonton and spicy duck. Most customers order from the bain-marie as they have specials, but the prices are very reasonable for other dishes which are made to order.

The interior is a classic example of what you can find in China. From the wooden furniture to the decorations, it feels like you're in a restaurant in China. The cuisine here appears to be Sichuan influenced, an area known to use spicy sauce in nearly everything. The most popular dish here is the 'Braised Beef Noodle Soup ($8.50)'.

The 'Dan Dan Noodle ($7.50)' is not like the one you would find at places like Din Tai Fung. Huge portion of noodles which have a nice bite to it, topped with minced pork, bok choy, preserved vegetables (mustard stems) and the essential chilli oil sauce. Absolutely delicious and the stock is just so flavoursome. Reminded me of the noodles I had in Taiwan as they also use a lot of preserved vegetables in their noodles.

The 'Pork with Preserved Cabbage and Bamboo Noodle Soup ($7.95)' is very similar in flavour to the above except there is the addition of shredded pork instead of the minced, and extra preserved vegetables. Both are equally as good.

For those chilli lovers, there are also little containers of chill if you want to add extra. Look at those chilli seeds!

They use different seasonings for their dishes and it is different to the Chinese food I am use to having. The pictures don't do the noodles any justice. It looks rather unappealing but is packed with flavour and oh so cheap.

Will return to try other items on the menu next time.
