Chewy, Unique Noodles at Rougamo & Noodles

Rougamo & Noodles

I actually wasn’t planning on posting this anytime too soon (I’ve got a bit of a backlog), but I’ve just heard that this restaurant is closing in about a week, so I figured I’d post this now while it’s still around.  Check it out before it’s gone!

I could tell you about what Rougamo & Noodles is all about, but Karon Liu wrote about it for the Toronto Star in far more depth than I ever would, so… here’s the link.

I tried a couple of things mentioned in that article.  First up was the pork rougamo, a simple dish consisting entirely of stewed pork on a chewy flatbread.  This was a tasty if unspectacular sandwich that’s much improved by adding a healthy dollop from the jar of smoky chili oil on the table.

And of course, you can’t go to a place with noodles in the name and not try the noodles, so I went with their specialty, the signature biangbiang noodle.  This is a really unique dish that features a single hand-pulled noodle that’s thicker, broader, and chewier than the norm.  It comes topped with more of that stewed pork, along with a zippy, tomato-y sauce that works really well with the substantial noodles.
