Didnt know there was a CHOICE of noodle bars, so hope we are all talking about the same place and it's the place that was recommended by ...er...whoever it was. We will make for the one which is part of the SHoppng Centre, although the Professor pointed out some other noodle bar on the roundabout somewhere...so now I'm all confused. He does that to me. Anyway, we will lurke around the noodle bars and hope to meet a friendly Plum (do you know, I've only JUST twigged to why you're called Plum, pathetic or WHAT?).
The noodle bar opposite the Tabarnacle is called Tai Tip Mein which is Cantonese for big dish of noodles. It is most certainly red, no windows but photos of dishes featured outside.
Tony & I walked around the Elephant & Castle yesterday to check it out ... okay, we were actually planning to go to the Coronet but I forgot to check the website first and we were 2 hours early for 'The Aviator' ...doh!!
I picked up a menu and it serves soup noodles, fried noodles, fried rice etc ranging from £3.40 to £4.00 as well as freshly squeezed fruit juices. Tai Tip Mein appears to be related to the other noodle bar at E&C, which is called Tai Won Mein (big bowl of noodles) because it mentions the other place on its menu.
I am working from home again tomorrow so I will look forward to seeing some of you at 12.30pm
They were fab thanks hon. We had a lovely time, but we missed you! The Tai Tip Mein was really good, excellent food, large portions, good prices, nice house red, we must do it again.
I think that we may also have additional converts for our fab, fun cider weekend at the Blossom Festival in the form of the fun & fab Juanita & Tony (think they may have been seducd by the four posters & the award winning breakfasts!). Do you think that you might make it to "The Hartley" on Friday 1st April - next lunch club? (I know that you are much in demand - my friend the social butterfly :-)
