|"Plain Broth" Lamb Noodles at Shandong Deluxe
|Click to Enlarge
As far as the Shandong Deluxe premises go, little change seems to have been made from its previous use; it looks just like the ramen-ya it once was, down to the big mural on the wall. This makes it at once a perfect place to nosh on noodles, and at the same time a bit jarring. It also makes for a touch of bitter-sweet historic irony, IMHO, with a ramen joint in a Chinese neighborhood vacating and its premises being taken over by a Shandong cuisine establishment.
I'll definitely be back to explore further the delights and mysteries of Shandong Deluxe.
