Review: Tony’s Beef Noodle

by gigi on January 31, 2012

Having grown up in and around the Oakridge area, I’d often noticed Tony’s Beef Noodle right across the street from Oakridge Mall but for some reason, I never ventured inside. Maybe it was because it always seemed empty in the evenings or maybe because I always had other plans in mind for lunch. In any […]


Review: Wang’s Taiwan Beef Noodle House
