Bob’s Noodles | November 18, 2008

My co-worker told me about this Taiwanese restaurant in Rockville. I took my mom there for lunch when she was visiting last month and we ordered 2 appetizers, the 3 entree & soup lunch special (about $20), and the shaved ice dessert. Needless to say we had a ton of leftovers. 

Oyster Omelette – the best thing we ordered. Standard street food in Taiwan. 

Stinky Tofu – also very good, but only for the brave.

Clam Soup – tasty if you like ginger

Spicy Tilapia – too salty, yuck.

Squid & Chinese Celery – simple and delicious.

Shaved Ice -my favorite dessert. I recommend getting red bean, grass jelly, and taro as toppings.

  2. what is the stinky tofu like?

    also, i went to the bethesda hard times cafe over the weekend with the girls. i have to say i was underwhelmed. maybe i just ordered the wrong thing.

  3. stinky tofu is just fermented tofu but it does actually stink! once you get past the smell it’s actually quite good. i like the fried kind – the best one i’ve ever had was from a street cart in hong kong.

    sad about hard times. maybe the arlington one is better?
