On November 30 I took part in a tasting tour ‘Noodlemania’ Dine Around Richmond event to a few restaurants specializing in Noodles. The 3 places that I visited on this tour which was hosted by Tourism Richmond, all were Asian though each specialized in different types of noodle dishes from thin, thick, flat, long, curly, rice, sweet potato, fried and more. I knew that we would be taken around Richmond to experience some of the different types of noodle dishes, however I didn’t know until the night there of that all the places we were visiting were all Asian. Yes within the Asian restaurant community the restaurants feature many different types of noodles, however it would have been more educational if we had been taken to one Asian, one Italian and one American for contrasting purposes. Here are the highlights of my favourite noodle dishes from the tour.
Spicy Stage Café
150-4731 Garden City Road
- Tom Young Soup Noodle
- Szechwen Soup Noodle
G-Men Ramen Noodle House

These are only a taste of the many different noodle dishes one can have at the many different types of Asian restaurants in and outside of Richmond.
