Last night I went to see Seth Lakeman at plug. I'd never heard of him but my friend asked me to go with him and he's into him so I tagged along, turned out to be really good actually and afterwards we went to noodle inn on London road for some supper.
I wasn't planning on blogging this place at all as I was pretty tired and didn't think it would be that good to be honest but it was very very good! We got there at about 10 o clock and it was pretty full but they found us a table and we sat and ordered food.
They are famous for their noodles here as the name suggests with the names and descriptions of the different noodles on a sign on the wall, its decoration is very modern with a large fish tank and a wide screen tv showing a Chinese programme. the tiny kitchen door keeps swinging open as the waiting staff run back and forth and theres only 3 chefs in there with a few ducks hanging by the ceiling for company.
I don't want noodles tonight though so I opt for honey ribs and crab and sweet corn soup whilst my friend chooses schezuan beef, salt and pepper king prawns and some egg fried rice.
I pick up a rib and place it in my mouth. my guest does the same and our faces are both of extreme pleasure because these are simply delicious, a crispy outside with soft tasty pork inside all coated in a thick honey sauce.
The prawns are also tasty and very fresh with a light crispy coating and a generous helping of chillis sprinkled on top.
The beef is ok, very tomato-ey with not much depth.
My soup is bland until I add some soy sauce then its delicious with little chunks of prawn and crab and sweetcorn.
We finish out food and I go to wash my hands in the toilet and am totally stunned! This is the coolest toilet I have ever seen! Its huge, theres mirrors on two walls that are as big as the wall. The paint is black and theres a led flashing light of hello kitty on the ceiling, a wide screen tv on the other wall and then a Chinese toilet like the one in that episode of the simpsons with all the little buttons etc.
I sit down and try the buttons, they don't work and I'm slightly disappointed but still amazed by this super cool lavatory. I go back and join my friend.
Theres a scoop of free ice cream waiting for me which makes me even happier and we ask for the bill. It comes to £20.60!!!!
This amazes me, very cheap and I leave very happy. Best Chinese food in Sheffield, great end to a great night for me! Oh and I didn't take any photos of the food but here are some of the amazing bathroom! - Sorry for poor quality, taken using my phone.
