We had spent a good chunk of our weekend in Greenwich and to complement that, we were on the hunt for a good chunk of food to feel spent on. Tai Won Mein on Greenwich Church Street was an appealing spot with many a crowd around. The vibe is cheap and cheerful and upon being seated the staff have a refreshing directness that makes you certain of it’s authenticity. The food order sizes are massive, making for the usual value for money and the three of us shared two dishes.
One was my choice of the Fried Hor Fun with beef (£6.20) and the other was the restaurant namesake, Tai Won Mein (£7.20). As a non-seafoodie, it was never my dish, but I did find the broth here a bit bland regardless. And also majorly lacking flavour was the fried hor fun. No denials on the sheer mass of food, but could have done with a lot more soy, salt, garlic, greenery or something. The blandness was a bit disappointing that made eating a bit of a chore. I probably would have been willing for some MSG-ness, even. The sweet and sour dishes around us looked great, so maybe worth another go and ordering different.
