Chinese Noodle Magic (兰州拉面): Food Tasting on the Opening


Noodle Magic (兰州拉面)
While everyone's getting all intrigued and excited about the newly opened Chinese restaurant in Toowoomba, Noodle Magic, we paid a surprise visit there on their first trading day yesterday. The red roofed building is noticeably located on the corner of Hume and South Streets, opposite Salem Lutheran Aged Care Facility.

First thing first, parking is really an issue in this area. You'd have to risk your car being towed away or getting a fine ticket for parking on the road side or footpath. And we did it out of desperation *confessing with a sense of guiltiness*

Mr. Choo stood in the long queue only to find out later that no EFTPOS but only cash accepted for the moment. So guys, if you're planning to drop by, remember to bring some cash with you, will ya?

Its relatively small interior with 4 plain white table and chair settings. The washroom doesn't even have light in it yet.

The hand-made noodles were soft, generously portioned, but all in uneven sizes. In terms of flavors, I prefer the more savoury Hot Thin Noodle rather than the restaurant's specialty, Lan Zhou La Mian.

Stir Fried Lan Zhou La Mian (兰州海鲜炒面) with prawns, shrimps, beef, chicken, pork, green bean, onion, shallots, carrot, Asian veggies, broccoli, and garlic in soy sauce.

We were really disappointed with the Lan Zhou La Mian, to be honest. It has a very mild flavor and was not appetizing at all. That's when the small bowl of chilli with soy sauce came in handy. It kept Mr. Choo going until he finished the whole box of noodle.

Stir Fried Hot Thin Noodle (香辣杂肉炒面) with barbecued pork, chicken, beef, carrot, onion, capsicum, asian veggies, shallots, and garlic in hot sauce.

Noodle Magic's stamp card. Buy 6 regular noodle boxes and get 1 free. The restaurant also serves entrees $1.50 - $4.90, fried rices $7.50 - $10.50, and few of the common yet bland dishes $9.50 - $12.50 like other Chinese take-away restaurants in town.
