The Muslim Noodle Shop just got better. I think I’ve mentioned that I love this place, partly because the food is almost always delicious, partly because it’s cheap, but mostly because the staff doesn’t laugh hysterically at my attempts to speak Chinese. They actually go out of their way to figure out which dish I mean when I say the main ingredients.
We have dishes we always order, but we like to see what people at other tables are eating or what looks good going past, and order a bowl of that, too. Most people are really friendly, they tell us what they’re eating and that it’s really good and we should get it, or if I don’t understand what’s in it, they offer us a bite. And our usual waitress recommends dishes for us.
Today Stick and I went there for lunch, and while we were waiting for our beef-and-potatoes to arrive, another customer walked over with his bowl of spicy tofu. He asked if we wanted some, and before I could say “huh?,” he scooped tofu into each of our bowls!
Hey, foreigners, try this!
