Have you ever went to a restaurant, loved what you had, and then for some reason, you mysteriously never go back????
This is the strange case of Johnny Noodle King & Me.
#Boyfriend took me there on one of our first dates, but for some reason, I’ve never made my way back.
This terrible injustice was mended when I suggest a late night trip this past Saturday.
We stood in a jam-packed restaurant for what felt like *HOURS* (it was only like…25 minutes) for one dish in particular:
the bacon fried rice.
okay, to be fair, the noodle bowls are amaze-balls, but the bacon fried rice,
So let’s talk.
The bacon fried rice has thing called ~pork floss~ that looks like a hell no, at first but trust me on this one.
A little history lesson on pork floss:
The official name is Rousong is a dried meat product with a light and fluffy texture similar to coarse cotton, originating from China. It looks a little questionably, but the flavor is like bacon on steroids.
The pork floss, plus the fried rice, plus the hose smoked bacon is all the ingredients needed for a pork party that everyone should attend.
Oh yeah, the gyoza is amazing & they have this crazy ass shot of whiskey that comes with the most flavorful beef broth chaser (as if you needed any other reason to go).
Make it your business to visit Johnny Noodle King, you’ll regret missing out on this treat.
