Steamy, Spicy, Simple
Hurstville is a hot-spot for cheap, filling, aromatic Asian food. Ticked off the list of restaurants here that had been eyed-down for months is 99 Noodle Plus on Ormonde Parade (the opposite side of the station to the often chaotic Forest Road).

Painted masks colour the dining area

A cosy diner specialising in steamy broth-style dishes? It was too ideal for rainy day dining. The brightly-lit room suited although it was not my first choice for ambience. Splashes of colour are added to the minimal decor by hand-painted masks. I enjoyed the uniqueness of each hanging beside us. Spot the baby masks in the cabinet - so cute!

Spring Rolls

There were too many options. First of all we settled on the spring rolls ($6), one of the light side dishes. The crispy bites were a nice contrast to my soupy main. If you're feeling more adventurous, go the cold jellyfish salad ($6), the marinated pork intestines ($6), or the ox tongue ($5.50), which from memory is reminiscent of bacon.

Satay Noodle Soup

After much deliberation, I felt the satay noodle soup ($9.00) most enticed. The sweet Malay peanut flavour shone through. I enjoyed it with spice from the table condiment. The broth was rich, and was sipped on over leisurely girl talk. There were plenty of noodles, tofu and chicken pieces but I wouldn't have minded more fleshy pieces of green.

Sweet and Sour Pork

My friend ordered the sweet and sour pork ($9.50) that was sweetly presented with a bed of rice. The sauce was full of the tang that makes this classic. We made it a nice dipping plate for the spring rolls.

Now, the fantastic thing is that everything ordered (cans of soft drink included) only came to a total of $30. You'll find this budget-friendly noodle house conveniently located beside the train station. Next time you are in Hurstville and wanting some Asian-style sustenance, check it out.
