Mr. and I don’t usually eat in Surrey even though it’s his neighbourhood. One Sunday night we were too lazy to travel far for dinner so we dropped by this Korean restaurant in the Guildford area, DaSom Korean Restaurant.

I decided to stay away from my usual Tofu Soup but went for Sullang Tang. It’s basically a beef bone broth with potato noodles and sliced brisket. The broth was very light, but it had this milky colour that you know it had taken in all the good stuff from the beef bone. It’s interesting that the potato noodles do not absorb any flavours from the soup, so the noodles were a bit bland while the broth was quite tasty. The sliced brisket was ok, a bit dry for my liking. Overall this feels really homey and a healthy meal option.

Mr. went for the Stone Bowl Bibimbap. When it got to our table it looked very wet, too wet for a bibimbap. (more…)

In the last year or so, one kind of Chinese restaurant suddenly popped up everywhere – fish soup noodles. It’s a type of round rice noodles in fish-based broth. Its unique selling proposition is that the soup base is MSG-free. That should attract a huge customer base.

Of course we decided to give it a try as well. We went to the one in Continental Centre, which claims to the first ever fish soup noodles restaurant in Metro Vancouver (the company claims so, this is the second store of the chain).

To place your order, each customer needs to fill out a form (not per table, per individuals). You select your own soup base, type of noodles and two toppings. Each noodle combo also comes with a Cantonese style coffee or milk tea.

You can order extra toppings and side dishes at a cost. (Tips: each bowl of noodles already includes some mushroom, cabbage and fresh bean curd aka tofu skin. Unless you want extra, don’t order those for toppings!)
