Craving A Noodle Bowl

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.

last year at pratt institute in the cafeterria ( yes sounds awful) they had soup night on thursdays where they had vegan friendly (or not so friendly) soups where you could get broccoli, onions, peppers, carrots, chicken, shrimp, tofu, mushrooms, beef and pork maybe? water chesnuts and some others things, you could choose between egg noodles or soba noodles (the vegan kind) and between vegetable broth or chicken and they too can make it extra spicy. i believe is was 6.95 for large (maybe a quart?) and 4.95 for a pint.

and it is pretty darn tasty.
