True to my parents' nature, we ordered some soup for starters, and the soup of the day was Green Radish and Carrot Soup. This definitely brought back childhood memories as this was one of the "old fire" soups Mom would make at home. "Old fire" soups refer to soups that have been cooking for hours before they are served, allowing for all of the nutrients to leach out of the vegetables and meat into the liquid, resulting in a flavourful soup that is light in texture and to the appetite. The natural sweetness of the carrots and green radishes were quite pronounced in this restaurant's version, complemented by the savoury flavour of lean pork also added to the soup.

I certainly had no complaints about Michigan Noodle Restaurant. It was a pleasant change to enjoy more casual, laid-back dining, and it was a nice cap to a day of self-guided exploration. I look forward to my next trip to Vancouver, when hopefully I can return to this place again and try some of its other recommended dishes, noodles or otherwise.
