Mr. Chili Noodle House in Burnaby specialized in Chongqing cuisine. Sherman had a coupon he had to use up before it expired, so he was nice enough to invite myself and some other foodie friends to check out this place. I’ve passed by this restaurant so many times, but never though about coming here till now.
The interior is beautiful. It reminded me of a cafe, but with no coffee. I didn’t expect this place to look so nice and modern.
You can ask for tea or water when you get a seat. The cups are really cute too.
Spicy Pig Ear
The pig ears were thinly sliced and had a good amount of spice to them. It was really good.
Chicken with Chili
So damn good. This is their smaller size and the chicken was so moist and flavourful. Even if you took the chili sauce away, the chicken would be fantastic on its own. I would highly recommend this.
Hot and Sour Potato Vermicelli
This was definitely spicy and it had a good balance of spice and sourness. There is minced meat and peanuts in here too.
Beef Noodle Soup
There are chunks of beef in this soup with nice marbling of fat. The broth was clean and not overly salty. They don’t use any MSG in their dishes. A good sold beef noodle but I felt like it was missing something.
Spicy Fish Tofu in Soup
This is one badass dish with tons of Szechuan peppercorn and the fish and tofu hiding inside. We tried not to eat the peppercorns as it would numb our mouth. The soup wasn’t very spicy at all.
Curry Beef Brisket Pot
Here is a pretty big bowl of curry to share with the table. You probably want to order this with some rice.
Stir Fried Green Beans
The stir fried green beans were ok, but we found it to be a bit old as it didn’t have a nice crispness to it.
Kung Pao Prawns
This dis was ok as well. You need to grab a piece of chili to go with the prawns to balance out the sweeter sauce with the pepper.
The spicy dishes were super delicious but a few other dishes were a miss. Its still really good to have a Chongqing restaurant in North Burnaby as its hard to find.
