Great food, great movie, great night

Tonight after I left work, I met shadowdaddy near his work for dinner at a new restaurant called Inn Noodle (on Oxford Street near Tottenham Court Road).

DAMN, folks, we're talking about the best Chinese food I've had since I came to London, the kind that makes you want to go into the kitchen and look for the crack shaker. They do home made noodles there, and by home made I mean a little man is in the window stretching and cutting the dough. DAMN damn DAMMITY damn so GOOD! I ordered Dan Dan noodles (noodles in a spicy peanut soup, £5.50), and it was like being back home at 7 Star Pepper (well, almost - the noodles weren't fat like I like 'em but they were still dee-lish) - I ate so much that my tummy hurt later. I also got my ever-favorite "soup dumplings" (called "Shanghai steamed pork dumplings" - £3.20), and folks ... they were the best I ever had, even though I ate them too soon and burned my mouth with the first bite (hint: put them in a soup spoon, tilted up on the edge, and bite and suck at the same time).

Anyway, it just opened, and I can't help but think everything they've got on the menu is likely to be brilliant (his "stewed beef pot," £6.50, and the Chinese pan fried onion dough, £2.20, which I bought strictly to dip into the dan dan broth, were both taaasty and made of high-quality ingredients to boot). I want to go there over and over again and try everything on the menu (well, except for the fish).

I should add that The Science of Sleep was very enjoyable, but when we're talking about "changing your life," it's going to be Inn Noodle that stays with me. 25 Oxford Street W1D 2DW.

And once more, YUM! Not that I'm not still full.

Anyone want to come over for games tomorrow night?

I *love* Inn Noddle, I've been about five times since I heard of it. The home-made noodles are the best I've ever tasted.

Might be up for games tomorrow night as well. But I don't read LJ from work. If you want you can just reply to this comment or e-mail me if it's ok to come over (and.. um... tell me where you live, as I've never been there I think.)

Will 7 PM work? And the information is at webcowgirl/tag/contact.

Re: gaaames
That'll be fine. The only possible preventing force is if I'm still feeling under the weather. Any games you'd like me to bring along?

Re: gaaames
Naw, we're stocked up. We just need to find someone who's got the mojo!

So, are you coming tonight? And around when?

Chinese pan fried onion dough, £2.20

Is this similar to green onion pancakes at Judy Fu's Snappy Dragon?

green onion
I haven't been there but 7 Star Pepper sells green onion pancakes that are similar, only they're very circular so when you tear some off you always just get a crescent of some sort. Have you been there? I kind of think we ate there once ...

Re: green onion
I haven't been, no. The name's always intimidated me a little, because I'm not a huge fan of spicy food.

Re: green onion
Well, I guess it's not all spicy - I don't think the dan dan noodles are particularly spicy at all, but I may not be a good judge.

I'll remember that next time I'm in London. Man, Tottenham Court Rd/Oxford St corner was my regular stomping ground in the mid-90s.

I can do games tomorrow. I'll try the noodle place sometime.
Mar. 22nd, 2007 10:18 am (UTC)
That would be games tonight - are you available?
Mar. 23rd, 2007 12:54 pm (UTC)
do you remember where exactly it was? It seems to new to be found on google. I miss 7 star peppers! And tasty Chinese food I must go!
Mar. 23rd, 2007 01:02 pm (UTC)
Most certainly!
I did list the address above ... but it's underneath the scaffolding on the south side of the street, about half a block in from Tottenham Court Road.

Re: Most certainly!
Thanks! I am a bit blind! See you tonight! :)
