Mee Noodle Shop: "Cheap and tasty noodles" Mee Noodle Shop & Grill Tip by sarahandgareth

There are several Mee Noodle Shops scattered around the city, but the one that was near (Gareth's) work was something of a haven when I needed to escape on a bad day at work. The service is always friendly, and extremely quick (it's nice to spend more of your lunch relaxing than waiting for your food to arrive!), and they always seem to have just about enough room to squeeze you in with a minimal wait. It's also extremely cheap: the lunch specials were all around the $5 mark.

Favorite Dish: I tried a dozen dishes here, but the chicken fried rice, the lo mein dishes, the dan-dan beef and the chicken with black bean sauce were the ones that I went back to a couple of times. The steaming bowls of noodles looked tempting, but I didn't want to get my food all over my suit!
