I love adventuring around Sydney for good food. A few friends and I wanted to check out the fabric shops in Cabramatta to help inspire some ongoing craft projects so we decided to kill two birds with one stone and grab a delicious Vietnamese lunch too.
Based off the recommendation of a friend, we ended up at UE Noodle Restaurant. Just off of John street, it’s known for its tasty duck noodle soup….and tasty it was!
With a menu consisting of only five items – pork mince noodle soup, pork slice noodle soup, duck leg noodle soup, chicken breast noodle soup and beef brisket noodle soup…. You are pretty much guaranteed to be eating noodle soup but with all your protein bases covered, you really can’t go wrong. Plus if you knew the place, you seemed to be able to request different types of noodles and free extra broth.
The cherry on the cake – or in this case the fried shallot on my soup – was that upon ordering, we were served unlimited pots of green tea to drink and two plates fresh greens and bean sprouts to sprinkle liberally into our soups of choice. Boy do I love it when a meal comes with free stuff.
And what did we choose? I hear you ask. Well, given its reputation, it was a no brainer to order the duck leg soup. Light and fragrant, the duck was succulent and the hand made noodles full of flavor and a very pleasing texture. We also got a serve of the brisket for comparison and it was just as fabulous if different. The beef broth was more full bodied and packed a curried punch while the beef itself was melt in your mouth with a great meat to fat ratio. Served with the same hand made noodles it was super comforting as well as filling
Yes it was a 45 minute drive but it was totally worth it! For an awesome meal and a fun day out, I’d go back to Cabramatta!
