Yu Xiang Yuan Restaurant is on Fraser and 50th and a bit further down from Breka Bakery. The restaurant isn’t really noticeable but it has a big sign board outside. They seem to be known for their hand made noodles in house. There was someone making the noodles in the back and you can see him through a window. I forgot to post this earlier so my memory is foggy now and I probably got the two types of noodles mixed up…
On the back of the menu you can see the different types of noodles you can order for your dish. I couldn’t read the Chinese character which would tell me the difference though but at least they had pictures… and sorry my picture is bad =(
These were some Pork and Chive Steamed Dumplings. It came with 12 pieces. I wasn’t really into this since I prefer my dumplings pan fried usually and also the dumpling skin was also really thick too. Filling was flavourful though.
This was the Ja Jiang Mein. I believe this was the Pushing noodles but I could be wrong. The noodles are really thick and chewy in a good way. There was a good proportion of meat sauce to noodles but I thought the sauce was different than what I expected (can’t really say how though). I just didn’t like it as much as I thought I would.
This was the Dan Dan Noodles with Cutting noodles. These noodles were flatter in shape but also equally chewy in texture. I preferred the Dan Dan noodles since it turns out I like the peanut flavour more than the meat sauce. The peanut sauce was smooth and thick enough to coat the noodles but it could’ve been spicier though.
The noodle bowls were about $8-9 and the portions are really filling (for me at least) since there is a lot of noodles! It was also interesting to see the different types of noodles they had and I like how you get to choose which one you want. I wouldn’t mind trying some of their other fried noodle dishes.
