Adventures in Eating & Cooking
Walked back to Sang Kee on Thursday through the treacherous pools of slush and snow, but this time it was worth it.
I ordered the BBQ Eel Udon Noodle Soup, and it was ten times better than the weird curry chicken soup I got last time.
First of all, the broth was clean, thin, and heart-warming. It was just right in flavor: not to bland, not too salty, a bit of an Oriental seafood flavor. It wasn’t spectacular, but it was good. The udon was delicious, although probably not hand-made since they ran out and couldn’t fill both orders of udon. (My roomie was sweet and let me take the last batch of udon, since she had tried it last time.) And inside the soup were floating pieces of crispy bok choi.
But the best part was the generous slab of eel that came with the noodles. It was marinated with the famous eel sauce found in eel sushi. I get crazy about this type of eel sometimes, so it definitely hit the spot. My only complaint was that the eel was on the oily fast-food side, and not as high-class as sophisticated Japanese restaurant eel. However, the noodle soup had a cathartic effect on the viscosity of the eel, so it was a perfect complement.
And I printed out another 50% off coupon so it only cost me $5 (plus tax and tip). I’m really starting to like Sang Kee. I can’t wait to try more items on the menu!
Conclusion: Simple, but delicious. The bowl of noodle soup leaves a very satisfying feeling in the tummy, especially on a cold winter day!
