One of my food exploration in Maginhawa included Caution Hot Spicy Noodle House. Back while I was still a student, I would always pass by this restaurant on the way to school but I was only able to try it a few months before I graduated.

It happened after another thesis meeting with Isaac and my groupmates, Isaac and I talked about noodles and ramen as well as how we were craving for some Ramen Nagi. It was on the spur of the moment when we decided to try Caution Hot, a Chinese restaurant located at 87 Magiting Corner Maginhawa Street, Teacher’s Village, Quezon City.

For their spicy noodles, you can choose your toppings from all-veggie, pork, beef and seafood. For the broth, they have Szechuan, asam laksa and classic. Wheat noodles and egg noodles are the choices for the noodles while the level of spiciness come in first degree burn, second degree burn, third degree burn and ultimate burn.

I also wore this top on my Redemption outfit post and my 8 Cuts post.

Try their bottomless soya milk!

We chose the beef noodle soup (185 pesos) which contains Taiwanese beef slices, vegetables, spring onions and an egg. We chose the Szechuan broth which is a “Southwestern Chinese spicy broth made with Szechuan peppercorn & chili paste; with mushrooms, greens and fried egg.”

The broth is rich in taste and the beef was cooked properly.

We chose wheat noodles, firm regular-sized noodles also used for ramen, they were really chewy.

The noodles reminded me of the ones in Ramen Nagi.

The beef soup, according to Isaac was very delicious and rich in flavor. The sunny side up egg had a deliciously wet yolk which went well with the broth.

We chose pork asado noodles (175 pesos) along with asam laksa, Penang-style sour and spicy fish-paste broth; with cucumber strips, pineapple bits, vegetables & boiled egg, as well as egg noodles, “thin wheat-and-egg noodles with the vibrant flavor of egg.”

The asam laksa was very spicy despite us choosing first degree only. However, Isaac said that is because I bit some slices of chili and green chili.

If you are unable to handle super spicy food then maybe you should try requesting that they remove some of the chilis.

On the other hand, the pork asado was delightful chewy.

he wheat noodles were thinner and chewier than their egg noodles. Personally, I prefer their Szechuan way more than their laksa broth.

Isaac chose the kuchay-pork dumplings (60 pesos) which is five pieces of minced Chinese chives and pork dumplings.

chose the pork dumplings (75 pesos) which is five pieces of dumplings which are mostly pork with shreds of cabbage.

I chose the pork dumplings (75 pesos) which is five pieces of dumplings which are mostly pork with shreds of cabbage.

In the end, Isaac recommended the pork dumplings more than the kuchay-pork dumplings.

Here is my take on Isaac’s pose on my Ramen Nagi post. Anyway, we absolutely loved the food. Even now we still talk about how delicious the food was, however, the only deal breaker which gave us hesitation to come back was the unpleasant experience we had with one of their servers. For us, this was a more affordable alternative to Ramen Nagi.
