I’ve been lucky, according to the weatherman, I should have been greeted by either a cold snow storm in New York or my flight from London might have potentially been cancelled. None of that happened but I did suffer some delays so that I arrived in New York a lot later than I expected. My plan to head to Chinatown to check out the Chinese New Year vibe was thwarted.
Barely had I checked in to the hotel and off I set off to get some food for my hungry tummy, Yes, BA did not feed me well! I was seconds away from ordering a hot dog from a street stall when I spied the Radio City Hall sign down the road. Took me but a second to turn my heels and headed towards the sign which is located at the Rockefeller Centre.
Down to the concourse I went to look for a Japanese shop called Yummy Sushi! I was so excited that it was still here and it did not take me long to order an Unagi noodle soup ($9.83) and adding $1 extra to have the tofu noodles. I can’t tell you how I’ve been craving this tofu noodles. I tried it for the first time two years ago when I came to New York.
After a quick wait, I was handed my bowl of noodle soup! I couldn’t wait to tuck in. The tofu noodles were exactly as I remembered! The texture was springy with an incredible bite. You can literally feel the strands snapping and hitting your mouth when you bite and chew it. I have never had anything like this before and other than at Yummy Sushi, I have not found this tofu noodles anywhere else.
It was so good and went really well with the soup that had lashings of soy sauce to give it a slight salty flavour. The unagi was succulent as well. A simple hot noodle soup to warm the body and tease the tongue, perfect for a winter’s day.
If you are in New York, definitely try out this tofu noodles.
