Noodle Inn

My co-worker has been on leave touring sunny Europe with his lovely lady for 5 weeks. So it has meant that there hasn’t been that many opportunities for me to leave my desk for lunch during the week. And ok that has been tough because one big perk of my job is the occasion ‘work lunch’……… longer than an hour, full of delicious food and generally with a few glasses of vino – happy sighs. Now with him away there still isn’t quite that much time available but when the other girls in the office asked if I fancied heading out to grab a quick bite with them I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Down the road on Hay Street in West Perth, down a teeny tiny alley way in between ANZ Bank and not far from the running shop there is a place called Noodle Inn. A lot bigger than it seems when you first see that alley way. Plenty of chairs and tables with very quick and friendly service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Given that the delightful spring time sunshine that we’d have earlier in September had faded and the skies were looking a little more bleak it seemed to like perfect soup weather to me. For this reason I decided to give the dumpling soup a go. It looked delicious in the photo – full of wontons, noodles and bok choy.

 

My friends and I managed to find a table easily and our meals would have taken around 5 minutes or so to be bought out to us, so nice and quick. The soup looked and smelled delicious. Plenty of wontons and plenty of noodles. It definitely looked as though it was going to be on the filling side. The flavour of the soup was slightly lighter than I had thought but it was still very tasty and not too salty, which was a plus. The wontons were soft and delicious little morsels, though challenging for someone as uncoordinated as myself on the chop stick front. I succumbed to my hunger in the end and went and got a fork so that it was easier to position the wontons on my spoon. I’m sure it’s a practise thing, the art of chop-stickering, I’m just a skill I largely lack at this stage.

 

The amount of noodles given was very generous; to the point that I knew as soon as it came out that there was no way I’d get through them all. But I polished off all the wontons and I think the dent I put in the noodles was at least respectable, and the same can be said of the liquid soup as well. I thought it was a good lunch and that given the flavours and amount that $12.40 was a reasonable price tag. It is my first dumpling soup outing though so perhaps this price is slightly inflated by its illustrious Hay Street location.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noodle Inn has become quite the West Perth institution and is quite the hidden treasure at the end of its little lane way. I’m pretty sure that when the mood strikes again for wonton soup this is where I’ll head. Plus what my friend S had on that visit was this dry roast pork noodle dish and it looked just great. Definitely want to give that a go as well. And so the list of things I want to try to continues to grow…. Getting longer by the day J

    I love noodle inn! I live just around the corner and use any opportunity when I am not working to duck in and grab a feed from there.
    My favourites from there are their hokkien mee is pretty good but my favourite is their laksa! It is really creamy and delicious, just make sure you aren’t wearing white that day ;)
