Joy's Noodles Rice Restaurant

Joy’s Noodles Rice Restaurant

During the last week, my girlfriend and myself along with another couple went out to dinner. After discussing our options in our neighborhood we decided to try a noodle shop and picked joys because of its nice location, and atmosphere. We arrived there for our first visit just after 7pm and were seated almost imedeatly. Our server spoke good english and was very pleasent to our needs. The restaurant itself opens to the outdoors. It also has outdoor dinning and has a few seats on the sidewalk. The restaurant itself has a very pleasing atmosphere and is sparsley decorated to show off the polished woodwork and the beautiful decorations from the far east.
My girlfriend and I had decided to start our meal with the Cucumber Salad which was a refreshing way to begin and was a dish of sliced cucumber, red onion, and julienne carrots. This was covered with a house sweet and sour dressing that was absolutley devine. I still want to get my hands on that recipe for my own use at home. Our friends decided to try the Fried Won Ton and i was suprised that you got so much for so little the price. The rich dipping sauce was simply delicious and complimented the won tons perfectly. Our server made sure that we had time between our appetizers and our entrees and kept our glasses full as the night went on. We never once had to ask for anything more than some more napkins for our table.

As our night progressed from sunset to dark we dined on our entrees with hugry appetites. My girlfriend dined on Crazy Noodles with beef and after tasting it i could see why she didn’t want to share with the rest of us. The beef pieces were small and very tender and the wild rice noodles were full of flavor that in my opinion did not need any kind of extra seasoning that came on our table. I had decided to have the garlic chicken and was in for a real treat. The noodles were so full of garlic, ginger and peanut flavor that i had to keep mixing in the steamed bean sprouts that accompanied the meal. The chicken was stir-fried so gingerly and was so tender and moist. It made the whole plate complete and i almost could not bring myself to finish it.

Our friends that came with us had opted to share a plate because they knew they would be full from the appetizer. They shared the Phuket Noodles with shrimp and the plate came like ours steaming and full. The plate presentations were wonderful and was very eye-appealing. The smell off the plate told me that if I tried it i would need to make sure that i had some bromo for my dessert but i just could not resist. So as i snuck a bite from their plate, my girlfriend opted to sneak some of my garlic noodles and didn’t want to give back my plate. The Phuket was tasty, and was spicy enough for me and my stomach and was wonderful to watch our friends wash it down with glass after glass of water to appease the fire gods.

After we finished our dinners we decided to rest a little, let our stomachs settle and then walk down the road and get ourselves a gelato and enjoy the walk down the busy street and watch the passers by and just know that this night ended with great food, great company, and wonderful memories. We will definately be returning there to dine every so often and enjoy even more of the fabulous meals that are prepared their and hope that you too will come down and enjoy the food and service from a wonderful establishment.
