Noodle Bowl - Dubai

Well-seasoned in in character and taste

Time Out Says

Noodle Bowl is a little diamond in the rough. The venue is cheap and cheerful, the staff are friendly and the outdoor seating lends itself perfectly to a spot of people watching – if you can tear your eyes away from the menu.

The list of dishes is long and everything sounds good. Service is speedy once you decide and our prawn cheng feung dumplings arrive promptly. These little parcels will put your chopsticks to the test, but persevere and you will be awarded in juicy abundance.

The soups we try are packed full of flavour and we are particularly delighted with the hot and sour version, which is fragrant and packs a good spicy punch.

The Singapore noodles are the dish that just keeps on giving – literally. No matter how much we eat, the mound just doesn’t decrease. Not that we’re complaining. The noodles are packed with flavour and have a lovely warming kick thanks to lots of fresh chillies.

The beef in black pepper sauce is succulent, with a tasty mix of spices. It comes with a scattering of onions, peppers and chillies, which add a good crunch and breadk up the heaviness of the meat and rich sauce.

After we finish our meal we’re happy to sit a while longer and enjoy the bustling streets of Satwa.

The bottom line
A welcome change of scene we’d be only too happy to repeat.
