One of my favourite places for lunch or dinner is Manna Noodle Cafe. Tucked into a tiny strip mall just off of 33 Ave on Parsons Rd, Manna Noodle is a tiny bit of my comfort food haven. Perfect when you're in the mood for Korean food and you're craving a bowl of hot Udon noodle & soup, spicy soup, Bugolgi with rice, or rice noodle stir-fried in terriyaki sauce. One March evening, I wanted just that. It was still winter out, so a nice hot bowl of Udon did just the trick to warm me up.
Delicious! Definitely, my go-to place when I want a bowl of Udon. The Udon pictured here is the Seafood Udon. They also have a number of spicy dishes, share plates and soup (spicy pork bone soup) & rice combos (bi-bam-bap). During the week, they also have an awesome lunch menu for a great price of either Chicken Terriyaki or Bugolgi on rice with 2 sushi pieces, spring roll and sides (bean sprouts & kimchi). As well, their complimentary ginseng tea is perfect in both the summer and winter.

Note: There is also a Korean store in the next block over (along Parson's Rd South) that has a good variety of seaweed for making your own sushi or putting in rice or soup as well as other Korean food and snacks!
