Sunrise Restaurant as you knew it is gone, and in its place: bowls and bowls of piping hot noodles.
The transition from Sunrise Family Restaurant to the new Noodles One has been slow and steady (they appear to have been closed for four months due to renovations), the old Sunrise with classic breakfast and diner food is slowly being phased out and replaced with hand-pulled noodles, Chinese food, and ramen.
Though the interior and storefront appear to be, for the most part, unchanged except for the new fluorescent “Noodles One” sign seen while zooming down King Street, their food and service have changed quite drastically.
An extensive new menu greets you at Noodles One – including fried rice dishes, grilled items on kabobs, a variety of meat cuts, traditional dumplings and hand-pulled noodle soups. You can see the kitchen staff through a glass window in the back, pulling noodles for each dish.
The noodles appear to be high-quality, fresh, and made by someone who knows what they’re doing. Good luck ordering different size noodles or any toppings if you don’t know how to read traditional Chinese – as this part of the menu hasn’t been translated and many of the servers don’t speak too much English. The best bet when ordering? Choose one of the photos you like the look of and pick that number.
Meat options are tender, flavourful, and cooked well, and the addition of pickled turnips in the soups was a good inclusion. You may need to take some leftovers home when trying their noodle soups, because you’re going to get a giant portion!
Those looking for the original breakfast are best off finding a new joint. It appears the new noodle / Chinese restaurant, Noodles One, is here to stay.
