My roommate Meg and I celebrated the results of our Cost Management exam with a little treat at 101 Noodle Express tonight. They recently opened up a second branch in Rowland Heights which is good news for me cause the drive out there is a lot shorter! We came around 7pm on a Tuesday night and you wouldn’t believe how packed it was.
The restaurant is located in a food court along with four or five other places but 101 Noodle was the only one that was even close to being filled with customers. We were seated after a 15-minute wait that was wisely spent drooling over everyone’s food and quickly placed our order. (Note: the restaurant on the left side of the photograph is an Indonesian place – check out Elmo’s review).
You’ll be sure to spot an order of the Beef Roll ($5.99) on all the tables in the house. It’s quite nice looking, isn’t it? A flaky layered pancake is rolled around paper-thin, seriously melt in your mouth pieces of tender brisket, a dash of a thick bean sauce and plenty of cilantro and green onions. They give you six big pieces to an order – more than I could imagine finishing on my own (though I’m sure if I sat there long enough, I’d wipe the plate clean). Each bite reveals a play of crispy pancake with a chewy interior melting into slices of soft savory beef and the refreshing life of cilantro and onions. A little dip in some black vinegar helps to bring out the flavor and cut out a bit of the grease. It was on the oily side, but that’s what the big pot of tea is for!

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
