Tonight was one of those ‘ I don’t feel like cooking’ nights. So on my way home I popped into the NOODLE BOX in Nanaimo. I had checked out their website in advance so knew what to order. The NOODLE BOX is a fast food joint that began in Victoria as a small food cart in Chinatown. It became popular with people lining up even in the rain for their food. In 2003 the first store opened in Victoria and now there are 18 locations in BC & Alberta.
I found their North Nanaimo location in the mall that houses Brown’s Social House, across from Superstore. You can eat in, very casual and basic, or takeout. There is also a store near the Port Theatre in Nanaimo.
Having decided to try the Ginger Beef for takeout. I chose MEDIUM HEAT! I took it home and 30 minutes later it was still warm and did not need reheating. Was it hot? As in 🌶 spicy hot? Oh yes❗️🌶. The medium was almost too hot for me. But it was really good. Beef with some vegetables noodles over Jasmine Rice. And a generous portion as well.
You can order a range of Heat🌶.
Scorching Hot 🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶 Guaranteed to burn.
Scorching hot might actually set your hair on fire. Order this and keep an extinguisher close by.
I like hot but even the medium was too much for me. So I’d go with Mild Medium🌶 next time.
If you like Asian food, consider the NOODLE BOX. Most of the dishes are only $9.00. Cooked to order, by the way.
Here is their website. http://www.noodlebox.ca/
