The Noodle Box

The Noodle Box is a chain of restaurants that specializes in South East Asian inspired noodle bowls. They make the food fresh when you order it, but they are still pretty quick bringing it out to you. I recently came here for lunch while I was working in the area.

Spicy Peanut Noodle Box

I had the spicy peanut noodle box, which is the item on their menu that they are most famous for. You can choose your protein and I opted for chicken.

The dish is made with a big bowl of ribbon noodles mixed up with Asian greens and roasted peanuts. The pieces of vegetables were actually pretty small and I felt like they could have been more prominent. The chicken was very tender and it soaked up all of the sauce.

The best part about this dish was the creamy Indonesian peanut sauce. It was thick, rich, and creamy and very delicious. The peanut flavour was definitely noticeable, but I didn’t feel like I was just eating peanut butter because of the hints of spices and the rich coconut milk. I would come back here and order this just for the sauce.

I went to the Noodle Box with low expectations, but I actually enjoyed my meal a lot more than I thought I would. The peanut sauce was so satisfying and unique and the portion sizes here are massive so I left stuffed and happy.

Recommendation:

Yes, for the spicy peanut noodle box.
