This pan-Asian bistro is one of the best-kept secrets on the Grand Strand. Jack-of-all-trades owner Eddie Kwong, once a finalist for ABC Nightline’s “People’s Platelist” award, goes the extra mile to make sure patrons have a positive dining experience and his staff follows suit with outstanding service to match your meal.
If you’re thinking basic Chinese and Japanese, forget it. E Noodles features dishes from all over Asia and the Pacific Rim, like the Thai Pineapple Chicken with fresh vegetables and a sweet-and-sour sauce or the Bangkok Chicken with Thai red curry, coconut milk and bamboo shoots. E Noodles also offers great beef, pork and seafood, including the Grouper Tempura with Lemon Mushroom Sauce and Euro-Asian Shrimp with Sweet and Creamy Sauce. As the name implies, there’s an awesome noodle selection – Udon, Egg, Glass and Vietnamese – and “E” will toss any combination of meat, vegetables and sauces into the wok to suit your taste. E Noodles is one of the best bangs for your buck in town.
E Noodles is tucked away between the main thoroughfares of Kings Highway and Ocean Boulevard, which is one of the reasons it isn’t too overrun with business. This small but cozy eatery features a small bar up front with tables and booths scattered throughout the dimly lit dining room. Large parties should grab one of the big tables with a Lazy Susan in the center for easy sharing.
