Tina’s Noodle Kitchen is part of the Dainty Sichuan group and owner Tina Li's CBD noodle shop. If you're at all familiar with the original Dainty Sichuan restaurants, you will be well aware that these guys don't shy away from the spice. So get that icy cold glass of water ready and prepare yourself for some delicious chilli heat, Sichuan style.
If lunch time queues at the CBD branch are any indication, Tina's noodle soups are worth the wait. It's a quick and easy affair once you find a seat though, the giant bowls of still simmering noodles covered in chilli oil will hit the table almost as soon as you get your drink. Don't be scared of the unfamiliar ingredients – the ruffles of black mushroom and konjac jelly are actually very healthy traditional ingredients. All the more reason to tuck into their famously fiery fried chicken.
