Beef Noodle Soup. Usually this dish is served in Vietnamese restaurants, and the fact that Noodle King is a Chinese restaurant made me hesitant to try this, since I do not like when Chinese restaurants attempt to create non-Chinese dishes. However, Noodle King's version of the beef noodle soup matched and even surpassed the quality of many Vietnamese restaurants I've been to.
Fried Chicken Wings. I don't usually like eating deep fried foods, but these chicken wings were juicy (rather than greasy), and they were not too salty. The chicken was cooked well, but not overcooked, and the batter on the wings remained crispy. The chicken wings were very well prepared.
Yeung Chow Fried Rice. Unlike most Chinese restaurants, Noodle King's version of this dish has a more brownish colour, in comparison to the more common yellowish colour. I prefer Noodle King's version over the others, since they have added a little bit more soy sauce, giving the rice more flavour. The fried rice was fluffy, and was a perfect balance between sweetness and saltiness. This is probably the best version of the dish I've ever tasted.
Deep-fried Dumplings. The pork within these dumplings was moist, which nicely contrasted the firm crispy dumpling wrappers. The sauce complemented the dumplings nicely.
Fried Rice with Chicken Strips. The flavour and texture was very similar to that of the Yeung Chow Fried Rice, except that this dish was topped with strips of breaded chicken and some cucumber slices. The chicken made the rice a little bit saltier, but it was balanced well by the subtle sweetness of the cucumber.
Baby Bok-Choy fried in garlic. This dish was very interestingly presented, since bok choy is usually served in whole pieces. Instead, Noodle King's chefs chopped it up into thin strips and stir-fried it in lots of garlic. The simple, yet delicious version of the ubiquitous Chinese dish is probably the best one I've ever tasted, because it had just the perfect amount of saltiness, and wasn't too greasy.
General Tao's Chicken. Noodle King's version of this very famous Chinese dish is my favourite. It seems strange that my favourite versions of three different Chinese dishes (Yeung Chow Fried Rice, Stir Fried Baby Bok Choy, and General Tao's Chicken) all belong to Noodle King, but this restaurant truly serves high quality food at very reasonable prices. The chicken was very crispy, yet not burnt, and the flavour was a perfect mix of sweet, salty, sour, and spicy. It was delicious.
