I had a sushi craving and I had been meaning to try Zipang Sushi on Main St. They have good reviews and they also serve okonomiyaki and I wanted to try that too. However, the last time I tried to go we missed their lunch hours which ended around 2-3pm. This time I went on a Monday and what do you know… they’re closed on Mondays!!! =___________=” Thankfully it was located near Beefy Beef Noodle so we headed there instead. They’re always reliably open!
We started with deep fried squid tentacles which were quite tasty. Not too greasy, crisp, nicely battered and NOT rubbery!!! But … I forgot to take a picture. Sorry!
My friends hot and sour soup with noodles. It did taste just like hot and sour soup!
Oops forgot to take a picture right away! I got the kimchi fried rice with beef. It came with edamame beans and black pepper corn as side dishes. I loved the corn! I’ve never had it cooked that way before but I think black pepper can make anything tastier. The fried rice wasn’t too spicy it also had a slight sweet taste before it turned spicy and there was quite a large portion of rice. I really enjoyed this because I love spicy food but it was just mildly spicy. On the other hand I didn’t bother to eat the beans hehe…
I like Beefy Beef Noodle because they have a really good selection of dishes although I think I always end up ordering the same type of items… But I do like variety! They also have really good deep fried chicken nuggets.
Ah another visit to Beefy Beef Noodle. This was probably the latest “lunch” I’ve ever had at 3pm… but there were still people eating there so it wasn’t too awkward. I hate eating in an empty restaurant.
Egg and beef on rice with broccoli and eggplant? as side dishes. Hmm I think there are usually 3 side dishes though not sure what happened today. Or maybe that’s just at some other Taiwanese places. Did not try this but apparently it was good. It looks too wet for me though haha
I had the kimchi and beef fried rice. I liked this because it wasn’t too spicy. I had one at Pearl Castle before and it was SUPER SPICY and I like spicy food but I could only eat like half of it :S However there wasn’t much kimchi in it either. With all the appetizers we ordered I only managed to eat half of it though.
We decided to get some appetizers as well. We’ve never tried the deep fried tofu before and I didn’t really like it. The tofu was fine but the sauce that came with it didn’t really compliment the tofu. The sauce was too thick and salty and I can’t really say what sauce it was but there might have been some black bean in it? I’d rather have it with just salt and pepper. Like the chicken nuggets =D
Siu Long Bao! These were quite well done, not as good as the kind from Shanghainese restaurants but they still had some juice in it. The dumpling skin was probably a bit thicker than usual though but it’s ok maybe it’s Taiwanese style xD
Yay my favorite beef and green onion pancake rolls ^^ There was ample filling and the pancake park was crispy but still soft =)
