Spicy Noodle House


When I worked in Osborne Village, the Spicy Noodle House was a particular favourite of mine.  I would almost always decide upon a soup but if I was there with someone willing to share and my office gang almost always was, we’d share soup and another of their many stellar dishes-Shrimp Foo Young, Fried Vermicelli and Egg Plant with Black Bean Sauce stick in my memory even now.

On this day I was meeting a friend and colleague for “just soup” before a business presentation.  Their Spicy Peanut Noodle Soup is a classic.  It is a perfect blend of my fav firey spices-cumin, cayenne and red chili powder but you can still taste the heartiness of the broth.  If you want to be crazy decadent -order it with the Deep Fried Pork Chop.  The tender yet crispy strips are tasty on their own but even better floating in the soup. 

Now it would come as no surprize that I am an enthusiastic eater.  I can be dainty enough with the spoonfuls of broth but the noodles posed a real dilemma.  I suppose I could have requested a knife and cut the noodles into spoon size but where would be the challenge in that?  So I persevered and did my best to get the firm and delectable noodles to my mouth- but alas.  Two splatters of spicy broth landed on my white suit jacket.  I had hope that the people we were presentating to were food appreciators as well.

    I was very jealous that I didn’t order the pork chop as well. Next time for sure. Today you had to go and remind me so I think I’d better make plans to get back there soon. As you will remember I brought home an order of chicken egg foo yung for dinner. I’ve never had it anywhere that even came close to how they do it there.

    Laura-tell me what you think they do to make the egg foo young so tasty?

    I used to live in Osborne Village and thrived on the Spicy Peanut Noodle Soup from the Spicy Noodle House. I moved away from Winnipeg over 7 years ago and still miss it to this day! I’ve tried to recreate the soup in my kitchen but nothing comes close. If you think you might have a decent recipe I would love to hear it!

    Hey Kath,
    Hope all is well with you! Seems like I haven’t seen you since we ran into each on Isla a million years ago.
    I have a crazy craving for the spicy peanut noodle soup today and ended up clicking through to your review…any chance you got your hands on the recipe from Sing? I heard there are new owners now and that the soup is a bit hit or miss since they took over.

    Haven’t had a chance to go back to SNH since this review and sorry I do not have the recipe. Didn’t I see you at the Signature Awards a couple of years ago? Seems like we haven’t lost touch since we are FB friends and I get to see how your family is growing up. Do you still go to Isla?
