Huaxing Tomato Egg Noodle

One of my first food guides in the city took me to Huaxing Zheng Street, and pointed out this tomato egg noodle place. It's the most famous in the city, but at the time I thought it looked too ratty to eat there. It was a year or so before I got over that and tried what are my favourite tomato egg noodles in the city.

There are tons of Huaxing Tomato Egg Noodle joints in town, but I don't know if they are really affiliated with this one or are simply knockoff restaurants. Or tribute restaurants, depending on how you look at things.

What I like about this place is that you can order your noodles spicy, which are great. My one quibble with this place is that they make a big stack of eggs ahead of time for busy periods so you are not always getting a fresh, hot, crisp fried egg. Today, arriving in the middle of the afternoon, I managed to get a good one. The spicy sauce really complements the tomato base and egg, though about half the customers order their noodles not spicy.

Menu board: 2 liang of noodles and one egg, 3 liang of noodles one egg, two liang of noodles two eggs, etc. I always get one liang of noodles and one egg.

Address: No 4-6 Huaxing Zheng Jie close to Wangfujing, which is just north of Chunxi Rd.
Address: 锦江区 华兴正街4-6号(近王府井)
