Review: No. 1 Beef Noodle House

by gigi on June 25, 2007

I went to No. 1 Beef Noodle House in Burnaby the other day for lunch. Located at the corner of Moscrop & Willingdon, it is a small Taiwanese eatery that is extremely busy at lunch due to its location by both BCIT and a high school. Not only do they serve great lunch dishes but […]
