Noodle World serves pan-Asian cuisine in a huge cafeteria-like room.
It's no wonder the place looks like a cafeteria. It used to be a Bob's Big Boy. The Los Angeles Times reported the history behind the Big Boy earlier this week.
Shrimp fried rice. Pretty standard.
Spicy spaghetti. Surprisingly delicious. It's like a Chinese mom made Italian food.
Chicken with chilies. Quite good, but it should've been spicier.
Chicken pad thai. A couple notches above mediocre.
Chicken curry. Also a couple notches above mediocre.
Almond and honey milk tea with boba. Deeeeeelicious.
Noodle World is kind of like an Asian version of The Cheesecake Factory. But better. And less likely to serve reheated frozen food. Notwithstanding the spotty service, my co-workers and I will definitely be back just for the variety of reliable dishes.
ahh noodle world. yup, most stuff is just a couple of notches above mediocre. reliable and good for the wallet, though. :)ReplyDelete
I want spaghetti cooked by a chinese mom, sounds tasty!ReplyDelete
i think i've seen a noodle world in pasadena... but it may have closed. looks like a good takeout place! as a sidenote: i heart HK-style spaghetti (and all canto-western food in general). i dated a taiwanese guy for 2 years and we ate quite a bit of it. ;-)ReplyDelete
You have so many more flavors of Boba than we do. I need to get some soon. Not today since it's 20 below 0.ReplyDelete
Ahhhh Noodle World. Brings back good memories.ReplyDelete
love the bob's big boy.ReplyDelete
[for the record, not the restaurant. just the boy.]
Mmm ... that Chicken with Chilies does look good. Could you ask for more spice next time?ReplyDelete
The menu reminds me of Noodle Planet - which was our regular date night in college!ReplyDelete
D puffy hearts the spicy spaghetti b/c it reminds him of his mom's. Dahahaha. He told me secret ingredient is ketchup.ReplyDelete
After Noodle World remodeled, it doesn't taste the same like it use to. The quality has gone down.
You should try the beef steak w/ rice or the mint leaf chicken. Both my favs. I wish they'd bring back their shaved ice station.
noodle world is a favorite of my cousins. they're all appalled that i've never tried it. i think i better remedy that, stat.ReplyDelete
I need to try that spicy spaghetti.ReplyDelete
Another spot I haven't been to. I wasn't impressed by the food until I got to the drinks. Yay. And I used to love BBB.ReplyDelete
I really liked that article you linked to. I've only been to Bob's Big Boy once. The only reason I went is because David Lynch used to go every day for a milkshake, and I was mildly obsessed with seeing a BBB for myself.ReplyDelete
I tend to like things oreo related. ;)ReplyDelete
