Restaurant Review: York Street Noodle House

May 11, 2013 § Leave a comment

York Street Noodle is place to go for a quick, cheap, and simple meal. The restaurant itself is small and tucked away on the second floor of a row house on York Street. The dining room is very cozy and slightly dark – it works well for two or three people who are dining together. Service is no frills and efficient. The menu is limited to certain types of dishes, but there is quite a variety within each category – noodle and dumpling soups, stir-fried noodles, dim sum, etc. Prices are usually under $10 for each entree.

I ordered the chicken noodle soup ($6.25), which was egg noodles, assorted vegetables (broccoli, napa cabbage, bean sprouts), and tender slices of white chicken in a fragrant broth. It resembled chicken pho, though there is a menu item “vietnamese chicken soup” which might be a closer approximation.

The soup was delicious in a salty, MSG-laden way – I admittedly love to unami flavor of MSG, but it does make one incredibly thirsty afterwards. May be unsatisfying to a connoisseur of broth who is looking for “depth” and mouthfeel. The chicken was tender and plentiful, but rather bland, so I asked for some good old hot sauce to put on the meat. The noodles were pretty nondescript.

Sum: Pretty good meal for a college student on a budget.
