INFO: The new menu is available across outlets in Dubai and coming soon in Abu Dhabi, The Noodle House, 800 666 353, www.thenoodlehouse.com.
Who doesn’t love this home-grown brand? It’s one of those places that consistently delivers with reliable quality and efficient service – something that’s wavering on the restaurant scene, if truth be told. Not one to rest on its laurels, the group has gone ahead and revamped the whole menu with 40 new mains and five fresh desserts. They’ve gone noodle crazy, adding 12 new dishes including wok-fried noodles and noodle soups. From the revamped selection the absolute musts are the char kway teow beef, fried hokkien mee and Singapore vermicelli noodles. If you’ve experienced street food in Asia, this is the closest you’ll get to the same thing in the UAE (and minus any potential health risks!).
The Noodle House is going really authentic with the introduction of baked roti canai, a special Malaysian flatbread that’s made for scooping up curry. Shellfish and Asian cooking go hand-in-hand and you’ll go nuts for the king prawns cooked with chilli butter and fried curry leaves – they’re out of this world! To come down from your chilli high, try one of their ice creams, such as green tea, banana and coconut or a refreshing lychee or passion fruit sorbet.
