Find A Filling Feed At Bellygood
Everyone needs a good local noodle shop they can depend on in those time of hunger. Bellygood is one of the best you could hope to come across in the Maroochydore area on the Sunshine Coast. Found on Duporth Ave under the Waves building and opposite the Big Top Shopping Centre, Bellygood is a popular lunch and dinner spot any day of the week - but especially weekends.
The noodle shop has a wide and varied menu. Just to name a few of the main dishes they've got Garlic Prawn Noodle ($14.50), Black Petter Beef ($11.50), Singapore Noodles ($11.50), Nasi Goreng ($11.50) and the chef's special, the Combo Noodles ($12.50) with thin noodle, prawns, chicken, beef, pork, veggies and oyster sauce.
There's also a selection of entrees such as spring rolls ($4.60), extra rice (from $2.50) and my favourite, the prawn crackers ($3.50). It's hard to miss them - show up early enough to dinner and lunch and you'll have a wall of bags with prawn crackers greeting you. If you're trying to feed a large group it's a good idea to order a few different noodles and top it off with some prawn crackers to help it go that extra distance. Remember to bring cash with you here - they don't have EFPOS facilities on site. Don't despair if you've forgotten, order your food then duck over to the Big Top over the road. The Woolworths supermarket should be able to help you out. There's also a couple of ATMs at one of the other entrances.
I stopped by recently late one night after what felt like an especially long weekend and picked my favourite - the Black Bean Beef - beef, capsicum, onion, carrot and black bean sauce for $11.50. It came with a choice of noodles or rice so I went with the former.
It was a great feed and really filled me up after my big day. Take away was the best, even though they had a few comfy tables to eat at I felt much better taking it home and putting my self in front of the TV as I devoured my meal. My meal was a good feed - it wasn't absolutely drenched in sauce which was good but still had a strong taste to it.
If you're too lazy to even make it to the shop then fear not - they offer delivery services between 5.30-8.30pm. Only catch is the order has to be more than $20 and is payable by cash only. If you get enough mates together for a night in I'm sure that's totally possible.
Sounds great but nothing was mentioned about the all important point of if they use MSG or not. As the harmful effects of MSG come to light and more allergies crop up people are more aware and savvy when it comes to noodle shops and chinese food. I'd love to have known
