Mar. 24, 2018: This is another restaurant that I knew about through Instagram. It’s called The Guksu and Noodle and serves Korean hot and cold noodles and rice dishes.
We arrived at 7:30 p.m. on a Saturday and it was moderately full of customers. There were a lot more Cantonese guests here than I anticipated.
I knew I wanted something hot and soupy as it was cold outside. We both happened to order the Janchi Guksu, a bowl of thin wheat noodle in light anchovy broth topped with various vegetables and thin sliced egg.
But first, we received a small bowl of Korean congee to start. It was so comforting on a cold day! The kimchi was also complimentary. It was so much spicier than I could tolerate.
The Chicken Salad was presented on a platter and arranged so beautifully. It had marinated thin sliced chicken breast atop of fresh seasonal vegetables. I really liked the tangy vinaigrette in this salad.
The two bowls of Janchi Guksu noodles arrived so quickly! I liked the clear light anchovy broth and the thin wheat noodles! It was definitely comfort food, devoid of any excess fat, and thus healthy for you.
I would love to return to try their other noodle soups and side dishes!
