Lately, I’ve had an obsession with noodle bowls.
You know how they say that some addicts will transfer their addiction from heroin to methadone, or cigarettes to cigars? Or maybe only I know that because I watch an absurd amount of those crackhead shows on A&E? No matter. I’ve successfully transferred my alcohol dependency to noodle bowls, and I like the way I’m feeling.
Here are some of the most memorable ones I’ve crammed down my face hole over the past few weeks.
Japanese Pan Noodles (Noodles & Co.)
Udon noodles, broccoli, sprouts, black sesame, carrots, onions, cilantro and shittake (shit-take) mushrooms. I add beef. Only 690 calories!
Truffle Mac (also Noodles & Co.)
Made with white truffle oil, sauteed baby portabellas, toasted breadcrumbs and Parmesan. This was a limited-time dish and it’s gone now, along with my soul. I would kick a puppy to have it again.
Spicy Kung Po (Simply Asia)
If you’re cool enough to go slumming for microwavable noodle bowls, this is the one I recommend. I’ve tried a lot of different brands of microwavable noodles bowls, and a lot of times the noodles have a mealy texture and the flavor is lacking. But this one is actually spicy and the noodles are firm and not too greasy. I added some bonus steamed vegetables. After all, I have my baby’s health to look out for.

TJs Thai Style Pasta Salad
This one’s a cold pasta salad with chicken and peanut sauce, and, looks like some red cabbage and maybe some celery and carrots. I scarfed it down too quickly to examine the contents. It was good.
