During the summer Christopher’s company gives their employees “summer hours” which means on Fridays he gets off at noon. This is super excellent. These days I only nanny part time and fill the rest of my time with the photography business and volunteer work. But now that Christopher gets half days on Fridays, I keep my Fridays open too. And we start our weekends early! Last Friday Christopher and I started our weekend with a lunch date at Tycoon Noodle Shop.
It’s definitely a dive sort of spot, but the food is excellent.
And any spot that has an old van out front promising the best Asian food in the city is definitely worth checking out!
We started with the spring rolls as appetizers. They come with a peanut sauce on the side. They are really yummy! Light and fresh and delicious!
We then got an order of dumplings to split as a second appetizer. Because we were hungry. And I was craving them. They were excellent.
I got the beef pho and it was SO good. Oh my goodness, it was great! And they give you SO much! It’s such a giant bowl. I ended up bringing home half of it home with me and eating the rest for lunch the next day. Yummy x 2!

Look at those NOODLES! I love pasta. So much. And this stuff was delicious!
And Christopher’s Tom Yum Soup. He loves this stuff! He’s been to Tycoon a couple of times over lunch with friends from work and he always gets this because he enjoys it so much. He only ate half his soup too and brought the other half home for lunch the next day as well. It’s a LOT of food! I didn’t try it because Christopher said it was spicy and if he says it’s hot, then it is hot. I can’t tell you how often he tells me to try something because “it’s really not spicy” and I take a bite and my mouth is suddenly on fire, ha! We just have different ideas of what “spicy” is. 😉
Do you like spicy food? I used to love it when I was growing up. Then we moved to China where “spicy” took on a whole new level. So I quit eating anything that was spicy at all. And now I’m a total wimp and have no tolerance for it at all, ha!
