03 Nov Bowltiful, Melbourne CBD
Bowltiful (formerly Bowl Bowls) currently offers eight noodle dishes to choose from, as well as the option to add on extra toppings and side dishes. As you place your order at the counter, look to your right for photos of the nine varieties of hand pulled noodle you can pick.
I’m always drawn to wide noodles, so we selected the 30mm da kwan noodles to go with the soybean paste and minced beef dish. This ended up being our favourite, not just because of our preference for wide noodles, but also because of the flavour of the sauce. The Braised Lamb Noodle Soup came a close second. If you’re after more protein, you can add extra braised beef to your noodles, but our pick of the sides is the tender Spicy Beef Salad laced with Sichuan pepper.
The noodles are Bowltiful are made to order and it’s a satisfying, comforting meal for under $15 a bowl.
