Bai Lu Noodles is a restaurant that serves Chongqing cuisine, a branch of Sichuan cuisine, which itself comes from southwest China and is one of eight Chinese cuisines. Chongqing cuisine is known for using red chili and Sichuan pepper. Consequently, Bai Lu Noodles dishes can be quite spicy, but you can ask for milder versions. This place is highly recommended by Gault & Millau, the French restaurant guide which focuses on the quality of the food.
Bai Lu Noodles offers hot pots with homemade noodles or dumplings. My favorite hot pot is bai cai rou mo chao shou (chicken broth, dumplings filled with minced pork, vegetables, ginger, and garlic). They also have small bites that can compose a whole meal. They offer vegetarian and vegan options, but no alcohol. If you want to have a drink before or after in the neighborhood, you can check the wine bar Bar Rix (1 min walk) or the cocktail bar Little Link (4 min walk).
The setting is warm and also intimate, but you can make a reservation if you want to make sure to have a table. Otherwise, you can order all the dishes and drinks as takeaway.
