Noodles are best when it is shared. This was us enjoying these Lanju Lamen in a winter time in Abu Dhabi at New City Palace. And, yes, you just read it right, UAE has winter. 🙂
The place is located just along Al Falah Street of the biggest emirate in the UAE. At first we thought that it does not have anything to offer. The place was spacious and high-ceilinged with typical round tables and red linens, approximately 10-15 tables on the groud floor. We were not interested in checking out the second floor since we thought that this is not a go-to restaurant since nobody seems to be eating. We left the place after looking at the menu. Also “typical”, we said. However, since we were on a craving day for noodles, we decided to go back.
The Filipina who assisted us on our table was entertaining. She has recommended a ramen which she says to be one of their best sellers.
Here it is. Braced beef Ramen.
It has steamed flavored beef in it which added more relish with their special salty and a bit spicy soup. And what made this really special? THE FRESH NOODLES. Oh yes, they make the noodles in front of you with their special dough.
This man came directly from China and his noodles are incredibly soft and firm. Definitely a must try. Nothing is more amazing when you see a man’s passion in his craft.
The price is 35 AED which is good for two. We have partnered it with their 15 AED fried dumpling. It was a perfect match!
This place as per the owner caters mostly tourists. They partnered with different group tours in UAE. That explains why they have a lot of tables. It is full house most of the time during the day. Chinese are really one of the masters of businesses. Salute!
So what are you waiting for? Grab some of your jackets and don’t forget to bring those bags of wallets as you enjoy what the world can offer. FOOD!
