This place gets a 'like' from me
Hurstville is a hub of authentic Chinese cuisine with each noodle house I've discovered so far delivering a flavour explosion. Alike many of the bustling eateries around the station, Like Noodle offers a ridiculous, almost overwhelming, selection of enticing dishes to choose from.

May look small from the front but there is plenty of space inside


Although it may look like a narrow establishment from street-front, it offers plenty of space to sit. Yet the lunch rush I was caught up in saw most tables occupied. A teak feel crafted by wooden tables and frames meets modern interior complete with brick feature walls, hanging lamps, and a graphic wall lining the entrance.

Spice things up a little


So, what can you expect to see on this extensive menu? Oh, and I may add that it's double-sided just to make your choice even more of a challenge. There are an array of customisable noodle-soups - with various meats, from beef to fish and even a couple of vegetarian options which I find is less common among such restaurants.

Otherwise find various cold side dishes - great to share or have alongside your main dish for a taster of different oriental flavours. I was happy to see an option to add chilli to any dish. Service is on the ball which I guess is a double-edged sword; you may not have time to suss everything out but I do find a little pressure helps with the deliberation.

Shredded pork, cabbage & rice cake


I ended up choosing the shredded pork and cabbage, with rice cakes - known for having a subtle sweetness. Mushrooms and bamboo pieces (I think) also added unique elements to this generous dish. I did ask for it to be spiced up however from first bite I didn't get much of this nor flavour.

In saying this, once I had dug below the top layer of goodies I found the flavour goldmine, and an even tastier broth sitting at the bottom of the bowl. Salt and tang contrasted nicely with the sweet starchiness of the cakes. I also added extra chilli oil, from the complimentary condiments found on each table - because, like, spice is life!
