I hadn't had noodles like that in years; very broad rice noodles with an amazing - almost chewy - texture. Outstanding. (Though, heads up: This dish is incredibly spicy - so hot I couldn't finish it. There are other dishes with those noodles - and a lower heat level - on the menu.)
My friend had dumplings, soup, and these yucca fries, served with an orange mayo dipping sauce:
You can't tell from this pic, but it's a HUGE portion of fries.
Bottom line: Neither of us had gluten-related reactions and both of us really liked the food. I'll be back - soon. (Oh, those delicious noodles!)
