I love the noodles textures,very smoothes and tasty, but a little bit spicy.
Real authentic Chinese rice noodles. Enough said. I have gotten take out there twice and ate in once, and I will probably frequent this restaurant more in the coming summer vacation. When you order takeout, it comes in this cute black plastic box. They have one layer for the noodles and one layer for the broth, ensuring the noodles doesn't get too soggy from soaking in the broth. It's a genius idea and we save the containers for future use. When you dine in, every side comes in its own mini bowl, making the dining itself an experience. Original Crossing Bridge Rice noodles- a little bit bland imo. 2/5 Golden Hot & Sour Rice Noodles- The flavor is immaculate. It is the right combo of spicy and sour and everything. It is so addicting you want to drink the entire soup base even though you know you will be drinking galloons of water later. 5/5 Mala- spicy for Americans but can be spicier!! The flavor is pretty authentic and on point otherwise. 4/5 Green Pepper- pretty good but not the best, especially compared to the Golden Hot & Sour and the Mala. 3/5. Looking forward to try the tomato one. I brought my friend to try it and she said it was pretty close to the store she had in China (Shi Mao Dao is a chain store), so I would say this is pretty legit. The store itself is pretty small but I didn't have to wait at all to be seated. Keep in mind this is during pandemic and I went later than the normal lunch rush period. Overall 5/5 highly recommend!
The portion is good and still hot until I finished a last piece. The price is affordable. I will definitely come back next time
Love the drinks and the noodles
Interesting noodle place. It's like they disassembled it on small plates for you to assemble. Broth flavor is yummy.
Got a 50% offer through DoorDash and my food was ready to pick up in less than 20 minutes. I dined in when they just opened which the food did not disappoint and that I even order takeout after nearing finishing my meal. To eat Yunnan rice noodle, definite recommend dining in. My mom has been craving for it and I been lazy to go to pick up and request for the delivery to pay the extra fees. Finally, I got a discount and be pick up. I stopped by when I am on my way home. They added more appetizers compare to when they just opened. I ordered Original Flavor Rice Noodles Soup 原味骨汤米线 (Rice Noodles with Tray 带拼盘米线), Sweet & Sour Tomato Flavor Rice Noodle Soup 酸甜番茄汤底 (Rice Noodles with Tray 带拼盘米线), Chicken Feet in Pickled Sauce 糟卤凤爪 (Appetizers 前菜), and Lemon Chicken Feet 柠檬凤爪 (Appetizers 前菜). All I can say this time, it is disappointing. The original flavor rice noodle was bland and tomato flavor rice noodle was too sour. I don't eat chicken feet but decided to ordered it for my mom to try, the chicken feet in the pickled sauce were too salty and the lemon chicken feet were okay and it had some garlic flavor. I still prefer to dine in but the take-out container with multiple layers is cute. They separate the noodle and soup, and the side ingredients are in the soup which you add the side in the soup yourself if you were dining in.
Came during a weekday after work. Very clean inside. Workers were nice. Very comfort level asian food as the noodles are hearty and the broths are flavorful. I got the Golden with was slightly spicy but bareable. My friend got the original which I believe is just a beef broth which was also good. I would get that if i come back. Price is pretty average as well. I heard the Milk Tea was good but did not try. Will come back another time and try out.
Very friendly and food are delicious
Delicious soups, pad tai and salads. Pleasant staff.
This place is an okay spot for a quick noodle fix. I ordered a chicken noodle bowl and thought it was okay. Noodles have the Szechuan taste and numbing spiciness to them (you can choose spice level). I was not a fan of the noodles themselves bc they were too slippery to even pick up with chopsticks. As for bubble tea-- I ordered the mango coconut tea and it was alright. Tasted slightly artificial, but the tapioca and mango pieces were good. Maybe another tea flavor choice would have been better.
Best rice noodle in this area. There isn't many authentic Chinese food in Boston but this one I would recommend.
Food is super delicious! I ordered pop corn chicken, takoyaki, rice noodle. All of them were pretty high qualitypop corn chicken and takoyaki were very crispy! And the drink was very good. Not too sweet but boba and jelly were chewy and yummy! 5 out of 5 no doubt.
This boba is my new favorite in the Boston area.. the milk tea flavor, the boba composition, I have never had such good bubble tea in MA. I am amazed!!! and can't wait to come back!! On top of that, the servers/workers are so so nice, excellent customer service and the food was all great. I hadn't heard of this place before but I am glad we came. Wonderful experience.
Let me tell you a story about this famous Yunnan dish, guoqiao mixian or "Crossing the Bridge Noodles." There was a beautiful lake on a small island where many scholars went to study because of its tranquil and pleasant atmosphere. Among these scholars was a student who spent many days studying on that island. Every day, his wife would walk this long bridge to cross this lake to deliver him his fav food, rice noodles. What a keeper! But, because this damn bridge was so long.. by the time she got there, the food was cold. What to do, what to do? But, because this wife was so clever, she got an idea! In order to keep the food warm, she packed the ingredients separately and only combined them when ready to eat. And it worked! Eventually, the scholar succeeded in passing the imperial exams. This method is still used today!! Sorry for butchering this amazing story into a not so exciting one. Anyways, the food were amazing. I first had it in Toronto, and it was amazing then. It is amazing now, here in Quincy. The place sits 12 people. The price range is amazing too. Try this dish, and maybe it'll help you pass that next exam too!
