The Wooden Bowl Family Restaurant - Strathfield

Deciding to grab a quick lunch bite in Strathfield usually leaves us with a plethora of options. This time, it led us to the Wooden Bowl which seemed to offer the Chinesey-type Korean food.

Appetiser-wise, we got offered kimchi, yellow radish and onions to dip into the well-loved black bean sauce. Simple. But tasty :)


I decided to order the mixed seafood and egg with noodle soup ($13) whilst my hubby opted for the seafood and hot noodle soup ($13). In the names, both dishes seemed quite similar. In appearance and taste, however, the two were worlds apart. My noodle soup came with a super thick clear yet gluggy soup. The soup was soooo thick that it just clung onto the chewy egg noodles - which made it so super tastily yummy. The egg bits added to the slimey texture which, Align Centerfor this dish, was really good :) My hubby's hot soup version came in a stone pot and was littered in redness. The same noodles were offered - thick egg noodles which were seemingly chewy, soft, yet kind of al-dente all the same time. My partner said that his soup was good. Chilli-ish but matched everything well.

mixed seafood and egg with noodle soup - $13

mixed seafood hot soup - $13

All up, for a simple noodle soup lunch, this does the trick. The hugeness of the noodle soups was definately very very filling. Whilst my big stomach was able to gobble down my noodles, my hubby was only able to consume around half of it before giving up.
