B.O.P in A.C.: Hot, Stringy and Delicious


Tucked behind the high-stakes table games of the Showboat’s Asian gaming room, the Royal Noodle House is a quick-service bistro that channels a mod Shanghai noodle bar. Tiny and boxy, the spot gets its exotic, simple vibe from a minimalist, white window screen wall, cozy diner-like booths, and an open kitchen exhaling a constant cloud of soup-produced steam. What to order? head-on jumbo shrimp, fresh egg noodles with oceanic baby bok choy, and pasta tangles in beef broths—all of which arrive faster than you can say, “rice vermicelli.” 801 Boardwalk, 609-343-4000.
