Today on the way to the gym I was craving a noodle bowl for some reason. There's nothing like that in our food court at work except for the a Chinese place, and their lo mein sucks and isn't really what I had in mind anyway. I was resigned to getting something else.
So I went to the gym and then to our company cafe, which was recently completely redone. Lo(!) and behold today they had a build your own noodle bowl bar. I got soba noodles with chicken and all sorts of other stuff in them - pea pods, sprouts, broccoli, tofu, mushrooms, and some other stuff I can't remember.
Just an awful picture, I know, but the lighting in my office sucks and it's a cell phone camera.
It's awesome, and spicy as hell (yay rooster sauce). So is there any place in Clinton Hill to get a great bowl of noodles? I think my favorite bowl in the city is this Thai place that I can't remember the name of in midtown - 56th or 57th I want to say. The spicy drunken noodles there are fantastic, but since I don't work in midtown any longer, I haven't been back. I'd love to find a great neighborhood noodle place - preferably one that delivers.
