I’ve always been intrigued by Flaming Bull in the Annex. It seemed different from the other restaurants on the block.
That’s because instead of sushi, like most of the other places in the area they serve modern Taiwanese food. The above instagram-worthy dish was the “Shangtang” abalone with radish, pepper and an inviting broth. I wanted to lick the bowl.
There was some “flaming bull” as the meat in Nash’s noodles was cooked in front of us with fire.
He had the Sichuan Style Beef Noodle which had veggies and a rich delicious broth full of spice.
I had the Stewed Beef Noodle which was AAA prime beef, vegetables, and a yummy beef stock with ginger and fresh basil. There was plenty of meat, but I didn’t find there were enough vegetables to balance the dish, only few slices of carrots and a broccoli. I loved the broth though. I think I loved the broth most in all the dishes!
I love what we had but I found that the dishes were unbalanced in terms of portions. It gets a little bit confusing whether it is a sharing restaurant or one where you order your own noodles!
