After coming in from the rain on a cold Seattle morning, there is nothing better than some hot noodle soup (Cantonese style) to fill your tummy and warm your soul. I love “hole-in-the-wall” places where the prices are reasonable and the food is authentic.
Few restaurants in Seattle fit the bill better than Ton Kiang BBQ Noodle House in Seattle’s International District. Their awesome roast duck noodle soup comes to your table piping hot. The aroma of the steam from the soup gets your immediate attention. The noodles are firm like they should be and the broth is just right. The quarter of a roast duck that comes with your noodles is simply outstanding. The skin is a crispy golden brown and the meat is perfect with a little duck sauce.
At first, when you see the size of the generous serving, you think “I can’t possibly eat all of this!” But, after the first few bites, you quickly realize “Hey, I’m not sharing this!” Then, it’s gone before you know it.
And the best part of your lunch? It’s less than five dollars! I haven’t found a better roast duck noodle soup at any place let alone for five dollars.
