4646 Convoy, yelp reviews
Tasty Noodle House is a nice new well-run Chinese place with a wide-ranging menu. If you’re willing to brave the single worst parking lot in San Diego (Convoy Street has most of the runners-up as well), then you’re in for some good food fast.
First off, the Xiao Long Bao – steamed soup dumplings – are some of the best on Convoy, which is funny because my personal favorites are right next door at Red Moon. They may share a kitchen. What’s good about these is the smoky flavor of the pork and the soupy filling. We tried the seafood chow mein (because hey! “Noodle House”, it’s in the name) but it was forgettable. Deep fried fish fillets with seaweed were delicious dipped in vinegar or chili sauce. And something called Braised Pork Belly with Tofu Skin was tasty – the meat meltingly tender – but I found the soy-based sauce a little cloying the next day as leftovers.
There are Taiwanese-style milk teas and other sweet drinks on the menu too. I got my yummy hot Jasmine tea in a glass stein – a first on Convoy.
Invite me! I’d go back.
