Slurping Noodles @ a! Xiang (Markham)

12:00:00 PM

Yunnan style noodles have been making a huge food trend in Toronto. There have been many new sightings and this restaurant, a! Xiang, was an example up in Markham. This place was near my workplace and my colleague agreed to venture out with me for lunch. This place just opened 1-2 weeks ago.

Atmosphere: 
This establishment replaced an existing Ramen house that had been here for a couple years. The decor hasn't changed at all from the original Japanese Ramen house ... We still found the original wooden tables and chairs from the previous restaurant.

Service:
Servers were direct and nice to our responses for cold water.  They provided helpful advice on the ordering for dumping the ingredients into the food. More to explain about that later.

Food:
Regarding the background of Yunnan style noodles, you can refer to my previous blog post here Apparently, this restaurant in Markham was the second location with the original one located in Scarborough (haven't visited). The ingredients for the side dishes were different from my other restaurant visits. The server suggested that you immediately pour the ingredients in the following order  when the hot pot comes: eggs, raw meat and everything else.

For this visit, we had order the original signature cross bridge noodle dish (wanted baseline comparison across all restaurants). My colleague and I found the broth a little salty for our liking. Compared to the other restaurant, Oriental Rice Noodles, there was no unlimited option for the rice noodles. Regarding the food and flavours, we didn't find anything exciting or great about our dish. It was average tasting for rice noodles...

Overall, I probably wouldn't come back again.
