PanPan Noodle Bar is the Best New Spot for Chinese Noodles in Toronto

PanPan Noodle Bar is the Best New Spot for Chinese Noodles in Toronto

A complimentary meal was provided and I chose to write a review. As always, all opinions are my own.

Last week I had the chance to visit PanPan Noodle Bar, and I was astonished by how delicious everything was. Before I tried PanPan, the only Chinese food I liked was dim sum! PanPan offers popular street food dishes from Wuhan, China. Will, the owner of the restaurant, actually grew up in Wuhan and came to Toronto around 10 years ago, so the food is as authentic as it gets!

I plan on taking Adam here soon, but I would totally go back all the time if I could. PanPan Noodle Bar is close to the Art Gallery of Ontario, and it’s a great place to warm up and have a tasty meal!

The signature dish here is the Sesame Lover ($7.99), and it’s v good. You pick your noodles, spiciness, and toppings. It’s an additional $1 for meat sauce, $1 for shredded chicken breast, and $2 for sliced beef or beef brisket. It’s the main dish in the feature photo at the very top of this post!

Pictured below are the Wuhan Style Sui Mai ($5.99), Drowning Bull ($10.99), and Sticky Rice Crepe ($12.99). I didn’t try the Drowning Bull, but the Sui Mai and Crepe were so yummy!

For dinner I ordered the Hot Dry Crab ($13.99), and it was 100% the best dry noodles I’ve ever had. It was so flavourful and delicious and it had the perfect amount of spiciness (although it did get really spicy as I got deeper into the bowl.) Even with all the appetizers I ate, I managed to eat 95% of my bowl, but I couldn’t breathe afterwards heh. Thanks Mary for the photo!

My table shared the Deep Fried Purple Yam Donut ($4.99), Soft Inside ($3.99), Wuhan Style Sui Mai, and Sticky Rice Crepe. All of the appetizers/snacks are perfect for sharing! And yes, the soft inside is really soft inside. We didn’t get to try the Sago Soup ($4.99), so I definitely need to try it when I come back!
