Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle at Aberdeen Centre

So over the holidays b/c I had no work... i went to check out the hype.

Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle !!!!!

So after an hour of lining up.. we were finally seated.

The noodles had a great elastic texture to them... and were cooked just right.
The soup base tasted great.. it had that chinese herbal beef stock taste to it
The meat was tender
The portions were average
The price was... not worth it imo.

The menu is small, the prices were around 10 bucks for a bowl of noodles, appies were around the 6 dollar range therefore my overall experience was not a great one.

Would I go back ??? MAYBE... but not anytime soon.. i rather scarf down a bowl of ramen for the same price... or order myself a delicious pho for half the price.. hahaa

Rating... 7.5/10

Taiwan can keep promoting this "beef noodle soup" as their own but will eventually at some point admit that it's Chinese.

This place won't close down cuz Fairchild owns it. Even so, $10+ for a bowl of noodle is a bit outrageous.

Did G-men close down? I've tried going there a few times and it always seems to be closed.

It isn't because there's a ramen place @ Parker Place. I personally love G-Men for their ramen and rice, but the price is way too pricey. Their also anal about seats and it always seems like their closed cause they always run out of soup and just stop operating when they do.

Tony's Beef Noodle isn't good, save yourself the money and go to Lao Shan Dong instead, if you haven't already tried it.

Well, you got to think about it,

for 7 bucks at twinkle in with their lunch meal, you get a drink as well

that is so much cheaper and better!

The soup at this new place is not bad, the noodles aint bad either but 11 dollars is really steep.

I went there on Monday night at 8p.m.
30 mins wait in line for 6 people table

IMO it is over price for $11 for a bowl of Taiwanese beef noodle
It did taste good. soup, noodle were great.
Just the Hyde right now. Nothing special
won't last long

Tony's is pretty good... its about the same as Wang's noodle house...

Lao Shang Dong is better than the two mentioned above..

Back on topic... Chef Hung's noodles do taste alot better than all three and the soup base is quite different. Btw.. they do not have fried chicken thigh/leg with noodles... its mostly beef brisket/tendon.

Kintaro is not all that great... i would not line up an hour for kintaro.. i would just hit up benkei instead.... or menya... etc.....
