Every Noodle-Lover Needs To Visit This Authentic Northside Noodle-Dedicated Eatery

Alana Laverty

If there’s one food I will never grow tired of eating, it’s noodles. 

Breakfast, lunch, dinner – you name the time, I’ll eat ’em. 

I grew up eating the best handmade, fresh noodles in Ireland (found in DaTang Noodle House , Co. Galway) and have struggled to find an eatery in Dublin that serves noodles as fresh and as good since. 

But with a bit of perseverance, a bottomless pit of a stomach and an excuse to eat in every restaurant in Dublin, I found noodles as good, if not better. 

The restaurant in question?

Lee’s Charming Noodles

Usually when it comes to these foodie features I’ll go on a spiel all about it. 

But honestly? 

There’s not much to the restaurant itself bar how excellent their food is, so I’mma let these pictures speak for themselves:

Melt-in-your-mouth Mapo Tofu

Drooling yet? ‘Cos we certainly are. 

Rich broths, soft elastic noodles, full-bodied sauces, tender meats, fresh, crisp veg and perfectly seasoned seafood can all be found at Lee’s Charming Noodles. 

Came for the noodles but stayed for the perfect, bullshit-free dining experience every time. 

Heavenly comfort in a bowl:

Other things to note: 

  • Their homemade dumplings will change yo life
  • They opened in 2005, so they know their way around a noodle 
  • Most dishes range between €7-€12, with huge portions, so you’re getting serious bang for your buck
  • They’re located in Dublin’s unofficial Chinatown, at 105 Parnell Street 
  • They’re as passionate about cooking noodles as we are about eating them

Anyone I’ve ever brought to Charming Noodles over the years has become addicted – so may that be a warning to you. No plate or bowl of noodles will ever be the same to you, after enjoy Charming’s.
