My favorite dishes: Salt and pepper shrimps + sashimi & sushi
Last month, I had the pleasure of checking out Thai Nouilles and Sushi as their guest. As their name implies it, they serve Thai noodle dishes and sushi. However, they also serve some Chinese dishes as well, like chow mein and general Tao chicken. Thai Nouilles and Sushi is located in the West Island, on the outside facade of the Marché de l’Ouest in DDO. They’ve actually been there for more than 10 years, but unless you’re looking for them, you’ll probably just drive by (as I’ve done many times before when I used to live in the West Island). Last but not least, they are also a BYOW restaurant, so that’s always a bonus 🙂
Since we were more in a sushi mood, we chose a large platter of them and just a couple other things:
- Cantonese Wonton soup: pork and shrimp dumplings, served with vermicelli noodles and bean sprouts
- Salt and pepper shrimps
- Sushi platter of: salmon sashimi, kamikaze, spicy salmon, rainbow & dragon eye
- Fried banana and ice cream
Overall, the food was great and we had a lovely evening (I took my sister there to celebrate her birthday). This restaurant concept probably wouldn’t work anywhere else in the core city of Montreal, but in the suburbs, it seems to work quite well, offering this mix of different Asian cuisines. Of course, it also helps that the food is good. I find its a neat idea, especially when you have someone who wants to eat sushi and someone else who would rather have a noodle dish or even a nice hot bowl of soup.
My favorite dishes of the evening were the Salt and pepper shrimps and the sashimi & sushi platter. I’ve had Salt and pepper shrimps before in Chinese restaurants and these were delicious. They were perfectly lightly breaded and fried, spicy and a touch oily. I just wish there had been more! The salmon sashimi from the platter was excellent; very fresh and tasty. The mixed selection of sushi was also very good, although I did find the rice to be a bit mushy. We finished everything the night off with some fried banana and vanilla ice cream. Although they tasted good, I’m not sure what it is, but I’m not a fan of panko or like thicker breadcrumbs in my batter for my fried banana. I prefer a nice, smooth and slightly thick batter. We chose to accompany our meal with (part) of a bottle of Aveleda from Portugal. I really like this wine, because its cheap ($10.90 at the SAQ or $9.27 if you buy 12+ bottles at the SAQ Dépôt 😉 slightly fizzy and a touch sweet. Its actually the white wine I’ve chosen to serve at my wedding.
Overall, we had a great meal at Thai Nouilles and Sushi. Its not really somewhere you go for the ambiance, unless you’re a large group and creating the ambiance yourself. I would recommend for large groups or anyone looking for a good Asian meal with different options in the West Island.
