Second page of noodle dishes.

The menu is short, with just five main noodle dishes on offer. There is another page with small appetizer/side plates.

Visited this brand new place for lunch on opening day, April 26, as it is just a stone's throw from my place of work.

This is a great addition to the ByWard Market! One of the front windows is dedicated to the noodle chef and passers-by will be pulled in (pun intended) by the entertaining display.

Service was friendly and enthusiastic. The menu choices are quite small, which seems like a good way to get started. The tables were surprisingly full given that it was the first day in business and overall things went very smoothly. I'm looking forward to visiting again.

Visited again and had the same dish as before. This time our server asked if I wanted it mild or spicy so of course I chose spicy. It was spicy in a nice flavourful way without being too intense. The Medium ($13.99) is really pretty huge and I made a mental note to try the Small ($10.99) next time.

I still put the overall deliciousness of broth and noodle a notch below that of La Noodle, but the atmosphere and location are both superior here.

I think that's the daikon.

Looks pretty yum. What's the translucent circular veg looking thing on the bottom left?

I went for the Traditional Hand-pulled Noodle with Beef (Medium, $13.99). I chose the smaller flat noodle "Joye." When we ordered, they warned us that it was spicy but when they brought the food there was no spice at all our server told us to add chili oil to our own taste.

The broth was mild and clear with a light beef flavour. Lean and tender slices of beef were lovely with the cilantro garnish. Generous slices of daikon added some vegetal crunch to the dish. The noodles themselves were wonderful, chewy and satisfying.

Compared to La Noodle (their obvious competition) the restaurant is nicer but the food isn't quite as great. Worthy of note: it was the first day open and they made me add the chili oil so my food likely ended up underseasoned.
