Friday night, peak hour for the masses looking for a feed and a drink in the city CBD. Chances are, if you haven't made a booking, you're going to struggle finding a table at the restaurants that you want to eat at.
This happened to us this night and we ended up walking down from Wynyard to World Square, trying to get a table at various restaurants along the way. Sushi Hotaru, Chefs Gallery, Din Tai Fung and Taste of Shanghai were all full.
Eventually we settled for Noodles Your Way - the Taiwanese restaurant next to Nando's in World Square. They still had a few empty tables so we quickly snapped one up.
A fairly simple Taiwanese menu, we quickly ordered as we were starving after all the walking we did.
Drunken chicken - $3.80 - a cold dish of a quarter chicken with a slight rice wine flavour. Moist and tender chicken but the coldness was straight from the fridge and not my cup of tea on a cold night
Pork chop and noodle soup - $12.80 - the classic crumbed and deep fried Taiwanese pork chop. This is basically my go to dish when I don't want to think and just want food ASAP at a Taiwanese restaurant. This version was perfectly coooked, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Came with a tangy tomato sauce to dip in and take away some of that oiliness.
The noodle soup with clear broth and choy sum vegetables and shallots. Nothing special here, just an accompaniment for that pork, hehe
Mushroom and pork noodle soup - $11.80 - a thick broth with smooth fat noodles and shredded carrot. The broth was very flavoursome and reminded somewhat of a hot and sour soup.
