There are days when I’m craving noodles, and this happened just two days back. I heard there was a new place offering hoards of it nearby so I made my way to it. It’s simply called The Noodle Studio.
It was a bit late for lunch so I called them before I arrived. When I got there, my table wasn’t even set up yet so I already felt that we were starting this noodle romance on the wrong foot.
The first thing my friends and I tried was their Vietnamese Fresh Spring Roll (Php 289) and I was disappointed right off the bat. Pale white vegetables were used and this caused the spring roll to be very plain, lacking any life. It was also worth noting that you have to dig deep into it to find the shrimp (which was very small) that should’ve provided the flavor it sorely lacks. The only positive thing about it was that its sauce.
Next thing we got was their Pad Thai with one plain King Prawn. It was below average unfortunately, lacking an umami taste. To add insult this small serving is at Php 398. What were they thinking? This order also lacked citrus flavor that lime brings, and some chili to spice it up.
