Yunshang Rice Noodles are the largest chain of Chinese Rice Noodles in North America, and they aim to serve quality soups and rice noodles. I had the privilege of going to their North York location to try out their “Crossing the Bridge” noodles which serve high quality ingredients in boiling hot claypots of the soup base of your choice.
The interior of the location was very beautiful, aiming to serve all its customers in a comfortable seating area. We were placed by the wall with a leather booth, and right by the window for some great lighting for pictures! We already had a sense of what we wanted to order, so the ordering process was very quick.
Each set of the “Yunshang Bridge Rice Noodle” comes with various seafood offerings include Canadian Atlantic lobster tail, fresh French Kiss oyster (sourced from Diana’s Seafood), luxurious sea scallop, shrimps and crab sticks. Other accompanying ingredients, such as beef slices, fish cakes, ham, enokitake, Chinese lettuce, and egg tofu, are also beautifully served with the bridge. With a selection of tasty hot boiling soup bases from Signature Bone Soup, Tomato Soup, Coconut Curry Soup to Spicy Pickled Pepper Soup, you can choose your favourite one to be paired with this hearty seafood rice noodle.
The orders that my guest and I got were the Original Rice Noodle and Tomato Rice Noodle – both of which were very tasty. The Tomato Rice Noodle was a sweet and sour type taste, which paired well with the noodles and other ingredients, while you already know that the Original Rice Noodles can’t be wrong! All tastes were extremely rich and added a great taste to the mouth and stomach! The one thing that I would note is that the actual bridge infrastructure made eating the food a little bit difficult to maneuver around, but a minor flaw, to say the least.
Yunshang Rice Noodles also have a variety of other options such as cold dishes, appetizers, and fresh fruit teas. During our visit to the location, I had a chance to try Popcorn Chicken and Taiwanese Styled Sausages, along with Passionfruit Tea and Pear and Water Chestnut Tea.
I wasn’t too big of a fan of the Pear and Water Chestnut Tea, because it was very light in flavour. However, the Passionfruit Tea was extremely tasty and had the right amount of sweetness and cold temperature for a drink of its category. The Taiwanese Styled Sausages were something new to me, and it was definitely a beautiful taste. It was more like a sweet sausage and resembled the taste of “Nem Nuong” – a Vietnamese styled sausage. The popcorn chicken along with the dipping sauce was also spectacular.
Yunshang Rice Noodles were such a treat, especially if you go for their Crossing The Bridge Noodles. Since the production process of the new bridge rice noodle takes a lot of time and effort, plus the food cost is extremely high, the “Yunshang Bridge Rice Noodle” will be available for 2 weeks only, starting from March 15th to March 31st, limited quantity per day and exclusive at the North York Yunshang Rice Noodle store.
