Located in downtown Rockville behind Orange Ball Billiads, there is plenty of free parking. The closest metro stop is Rockville on the red line.
Drinks aren't on their regular menu. They have a separate one that you need to ask for. My cousin ordered a 'Lycee Bubble Tea'. It was so good and fragrant because they used actual lycee fruit and canned juice in it.
Here is the reason for eating there: 'Crispy Smelled Bean Curd- Deep fried smelled bean curd with pickled cabbage served with Chef's special sauce' ($4.95) AKA Stinky Tofu. It doesn't look so bad, right? However, before we got our we could smell it from the next table. To me, it smells of like a horse stable/barn. It is made by fermenting the tofu. Usually a brine of milk, seafood, veggies are made to sit out for months, then tofu is added for a few days to a few months. Then only white mold is allowed to grow on it, which signifies that it is good and ready to eat. I think it smells worst than it tastes.
Since the word 'Noodle' is in the restaurant's name, I wanted to try their noodles. I ordered the 'Pork and Egg Thick Noodle Soup- homemade noodles served in chicken broth with shredded pork, vegetables and egg' ($6.25). The bowl was huge! I couldn't finish it. The broth has the consistency of an egg drop soup. The noodles were normal, nothing unique.
The bf and I shared the 'Oyster Pancake- sweet potato powder pan-fried with egg, oyster and vegetables served with Chef's special sauce' ($4.95). I loved it! It was so flavorful, and had great texture. You might not like it if you don't like slimy things or seafood flavors.
Very authentic Taiwanese menu with a packed restaurant. The food came out fast. Our server didn't really speak English, so we just pointed to the items we wanted. The prices are so cheap! When do you ever see dishes for $4 anymore? It is a 'Cash-Only' restaurant. It's a good place to be more adventurous and try items like intestines, blood, ears, stomach, tripe, and kidneys.
