Brand new review coming at you, this time on ‘High Street’ on 11003 – 124 Street is Midnight Sun. Not exactly on the hip and exciting section of 124 street but it’s there. I’ve driven by Midnight Sun many many times and always questioned what they offered and the rumour was it’s a Vietnamese and Chinese restaurant, usually I get burned coming to these types of restaurants because they say they have Vietnamese food but it’s just spring rolls and the rest is Chinese food. I called ahead and made sure that wasn’t the case.
I ordered the large ‘Satay Beef Rice Noodle‘ for $10.50, the meal is topped with lots of green onions and some sort of dried or fried flakes. Within the thick brown gravy-like broth is cucumbers and bean sprouts and…and…I can’t do this! This meal does not smell appetizing at all. I gave the noodles a flip and noticed a lot of random chunks and unexplainable particulates throughout the soup and none of it looks or smells appetizing at all. There is a lot of noodles given and a very generous amount of chewy pre-cooked beef, if you’re willing to eat it. The broth tastes as bad as it smells, I can’t describe it, I have no idea what I’m eating. This is the first meal that I can’t finish, I’m gagging just thinking about it.
