Le Guide Fooding’s Best Noodles of 2016
“Chilies can cause stomach aches and diarrhea. Consume responsibly!” In this brick-walled café with high tables and exposed pipes, no one of sound mind would take the warning written out on the wall lightly. And so, exceeding level two on the spice scale (which goes up to five) would be insanity. That’s the reason why, the day we went for lunch, we decided to stay at number 1, with homemade dan dan noodles in a rich pork broth seasoned with chives, cilantro, Chinese cabbage, peanuts and garlic (€10.40). A recital of flavor that’s made even better with five ground pork dumplings with plenty of Chinese chives, peanuts, and fresh, crunchy garlic (€5.20). And for all those won’t don’t like slurping up their food in public, there are a few soup-free dishes, even some without spice (truly!), like the dried noodles with ground pork, peanuts, walnuts, sesame seeds, choucroute, Chinese cabbage and chives (€10.60). or the sliced beef in a sesame sauce (€11.20). To drink: Marcel Bio fruit juices (€4.50 for 250 ml) and hot or cold teas (€4.50). Dishes €5.20 to €12.60. // D.C.
