Best East Asian: JiangYun Noodle House

830 Fort Street  |  $$ |  jiangyunnoodlevictoria.com |  No reservations; walk-ins only

Our judges have been hanging out at JiangYun Noodle House, one of the newest Asian eateries in town. Set in a small storefront on Fort Street where a charcuterie shop once stood, it’s the kind of sole proprietor spot this city is famous for, with just one specialty — big bowls of Chinese- and Taiwanese-style noodles.

JiangYun’s noodles come with their own “signature” sauces and broths, in variations like roast chicken, grilled pork, slow-cooked beef or vegetarian toppings. Made from scratch — some wheat noodles even pulled by hand — these noodle bowls make for a simple, slurpable and filling meal.

The beef noodle bowl, with tender braised beef in a slow-simmered, rich and aromatically spiced beef broth, is a must-try. But remember, this is a small owner/operator kitchen — don’t all go at once!
