personally I think Lao Shan Dong (老山東) on Kingsway has some of the best TW style beef noodle soup I've tried in Vancouver

ding hao sucks balls imo. super overpriced for the amount of food you get.

tbh, i dont think there will ever be a place as good as rico's. i love lao shan dong..but it's just not the same!

Probably! His name was Eric and he drove a purplish Eagle Talon back in those days, around 1997?

They do have good noodles, but the beef sucks! Also, the soup could use some improvement.

yea, i went to lao shan dong, good call you guys. thanks.

the soup was very flavorful, and the noodles were oh-so-chewy and fresh.
not as good as rico's, but they take the crown for now..

if anyone's gonna try it, its on nelson st, not kingsway hidden away a little bit.

essentially, traditional beef noodle soup has just a few components...
-the cut of beef you prefer (duh)
-hot broadbean sauce

^this stuff
-soysauce & water
-cooking rice wine
-anise


I've also heard of people adding rock sugar, but our family has never done that before



edit: and tomatoes I guess lol

^^^ ahah I agree. I don't personally like Lao Shan Dong either. The meat they use is not your typical ones used, so damn lean. The soup base is pretty good though.

I prefer the one at Trity, they put tomatos in it too. Closest to the ones I've tried in TW.
