Nibbles: Daddy’s Noodle Bar
On the way home from getting my Costco card in East Lyme recently, I stopped for takeout from the pretty new restaurant in the old location of Five Guys. Instead of burgers on the menu, there were Vietnamese selections including ramen, pho, bowls, and even dessert. I chose Number 10, Shoyu Paitan. When I got the bag home, there was a lidded bowl of delicate dark brown broth; a carton of noodles, hard-cooked egg, and cooked chicken; and a packet of sprouts, scallions, nori, and a few other things I didn’t understand. I put the all of it into a ceramic bowl and added about a third of the broth. It was absolutely delicious. A few days later I made some brown rice and added the leftover broth. Can’t wait to try some of the other dishes.
