SGV: Spicy Wonton Noodles at Yun Noodle House

I am a noodles fiend and I’ve been dreaming about doing a noodles crawl in this little Arcadia food court ever since the Daikokuya opened. I had eyed the neighboring Yun Noodle House but opted for ramen that day instead of dan dan noodles. I promised I’d go back soon.

Well, it took a while but I did eventually check it out. A couple of weeks ago, I found myself in Arcadia at an odd time- way past lunch but too early for dinner. That’s the great thing about food courts though, they’re generally open and there were even other people finishing off bowls of noodles.

I spotted the seaweed and knew I wanted some. I’ve been eating more seaweed lately thinking of the powerhouse nutrients it provides. You can’t apparently just get one appetizer though so I also got pig’s ear and spicy tofu. The latter was recommended by the counter woman. And she was right, the tofu was great. This later led to me buying a couple of different spicy bean pastes in hopes of recreating the dish.

I didn’t get dan dan noodles this time but wanted something hot and soupy since it was a rainy day. I spotted the spicy wontons and stewed pork noodles. The wontons weren’t like the ones I’m used to at Cantonese places. These seemed shaped more like tortellini and had a minimal amount of ground meat which I assumed was pork. Despite its fiery appearance, the soup wasn’t actually very spicy. It was a probably a good thing since a hot broth would have made everything too spicy for me to eat. I happily finished my bowl and gazed at the other spots in this food court. A noodles festival of my very own may be coming soon.
