Adventures in Eating & Cooking

Noodle Bowl Therapy at Sang Kee

Ok, so the Starbucks diet left me feeling pretty sick by the end of the day so I decided to get a big bowl of noodle soup at Sang Kee Noodle House to ease my digestive system.

House Special Egg Noodle Soup

I got the House Special Egg Noodle Soup after the waiter told me it contained all sorts of meats and veggies, which I was in dire need of having eaten nothing but carbs all day. The noodles were alright, probably typical ramen or package noodles but I really liked the shrimp dumpling wontons floating around since they tasted like har gaw. The innards were seasoned with a bit of pepper, scallion, and fish. The slices of char siu on top were pretty authentic tasting, although I assume store-bought. I like how the veggies (baby corn, green beans, carrots) were fresh and crisp, boiled to the perfect point beyond rawness but before sogginess.

I also found some pieces of white meat inside the soup that tasted soft and chewy like fish. Hmm, this is pretty interesting fish, I thought to myself. And then after eating a few more pieces, I recalled the waiter never mentioning fish as the contents of the soup. I looked a little more carefully and realized these meat pieces were actually chicken. I was surprised at how much the meat lost its chickeny flavor and resembled tasteless nuggets. I assume they actually were frozen tasteless nuggets before being added to the soup.

However, the cleanly-tasting broth really hit the spot, purging my system of any lingering Starbucks aftertaste. The broth was on the blander side, but encompassed faint tastes of all the soup contents including the eggy noodles.

To be honest, Sang Kee’s noodle bowls remind me a lot of Hong Kong Station in Chinatown but slightly cleaner, blander, and classier. To balance it out, it’s also a bit more expensive. However, it’s still relatively cheap compared to other restaurants in the area so I think it’s a pretty good deal for University City.

Seaweed Salad

I also got the Seaweed Salad since I still craved some more veggies. This salad was pretty fresh with a nice sweet white vinegary dressing. There isn’t much to say, except that I really like the cool oceany flavor of the seaweed salad. I particularly liked this salad because the seaweed didn’t taste too strongly of the sea and was flavored well with the vinegar.
