Noodle Canteen - 59 Station Street, Burwood, Melbourne - possesses both good and bad aspects. It provides an extensive and flexible menu which customers can modify easily. Along with the noodle based meals, they also offer rice based meals. The food is cooked to order, so it is always freshly made, and only takes 5-6 minutes to make. The food itself is flavoursome, moreish, and the serves are generously sized. Prices range from $9.50 to $13.

However, the dubious appearance of the premises itself does cause scepticism in customers' minds - there is a desperate need for maintenance to be done. Furthermore, there is a questionable level of food handling hygiene. In particular, the cook doesn't wear any sort of headgear or gloves. Also, the woks do not appear to be cleaned between orders. While to some this may not be an issue, to those who are allergic it may be more problematic. In particular, my boyfriend is allergic to seafood. Although he ordered a non-seafood dish, the wok had cooked a seafood dish before his, and cross contamination occurred from residual seafood juice that was left in the wok from that previous order.

Overall, this is a great place for a cheap meal. Just make sure you don't have a food allergy!
