DinnerFavor Eat World


It’s the return of cold, rainy days in Vancouver and Tre and I have a hankering for some soup. Passing by a number of people slurping soup from the Huaxi Noodle Specialist in the food fair at Crystal Mall, we stumbled on to Favor Eat World across the way. The name obviously suffers from a case of Bad English Translation Syndrome. After contemplating the name’s meaning and giggling to ourselves, we decided to order some soup.

Tre orders beef noodle with tendons. I have the beef and tendons with mung bean noodles (Vermicelli). The cute girl behind the counter asks how spicy we wanted the soup and proceeded to recommend we try medium spicy first. After Huaxi’s spicy beef noodles episode, we decided to go with her recommendation.

The soup was decent, but we’ve had better. The beef broth lacked the beefy goodness we were looking for. Thick slices of carrots, cabbage and green onions balance out the protein. Tre’s noodles were a little on the thicker side and starchy. My mung bean noodles were clear, but much thicker than the usual mung bean noodles. Overall, the noodles were slightly over cooked and a little heavy.

Our bill including one a can of Coke came to $13.50, which makes this a pretty cheap meal. Both of our beef noodle soups were accompanied by with two little cups of Chinese tea. Although our meals were alright, Huaxi Noodle Specialist is still the top dog in Crystal Mall.

Perfect for: beating the rainy day blahs.
