Big Beef Bowl
1 Byng Ave, North York
I was really excited to try this new spot that just opened at Yonge and Finch, mostly because I’ve been craving for a nice big bowl of beef brisket soup… And also – look at those noodles! Really flat, thick and hand pulled. I’ve never seen anything like it!!
First things first: Big Beef Bowl is a small restaurant that probably fits 10-15 customers, so I imagine they get really busy at lunch and dinner. The food is awesome though, and pretty legit. Aside from the large bowl of noodles I ordered, my boyfriend and I also got pork, chive and egg dumplings as well as the spicy roasted corn. Both SO delish! I should have taken pictures but I was really focused on my bowl of noodles which was amazing: spicy, rich broth reminiscent of pho. By reminiscent I mean that there are spices in pho that I taste in the broth, but both are totally different dishes. Loved the noodles too, they had an amazingly chewy texture. The chunks of beef brisket were really tender, I wanted more!! The service was great too, no complaints!
Will definitely be back to try another noodle size and probably extra beef.
