I was called in so many names; purple, violet, lilac but the most appetizing of them all is no other than “UBE”
I was at Binondo the other day and along Ongpin Street, where a restaurant was standing out from the rest. Mr. Ube and Rice Noodle House is the newest addition to my list of favorite spot when it comes to dining. The owner of Mr. Ube is also the man behind the successful Eng Bee Tin, where I can find the famous Ube Hopia and Tikoy.

Mr. Ube and Rice Noodle House serve the best noodle in the Metro. I found out that the noodles are hand pulled and although the ingredients seems to be very basic, it still have that quality of goodness that you can’t find in other noodles. The noodles are made fresh everyday; it has no Msg and its grease free.
|Noodle are pack per order|
There are so many choices that I don’t know which I should order first. Should I have the basic chicken noodle soup or the wanton or the beef wanton? There’s also the variety of international noodle soups. Want to try Thai? Order Thai Tom Yam. Hungry like a lion? The Singaporean Laksa is for you. Craving for Japanese? Sip some Japanese Shoyu. If Chinese is your choice, then Gokong Noodle should be on your plate. These and more will let you experience a gastronomic adventure in this noodle house.

Although Chinese cuisine constitutes majority of Mr. Ube Rice and Noodle House’s menu, there are an array of food offerings that will surely tickle your taste buds. Take your pick: noodle soup, rice toppings, stir fry noodles, dimsum, and a lot more.
