Noodles on Seven - Report

Offbalance | Sep 7, 2005 12:38 PM

I decided to give this new restaurant on 7th avenue and 10th Street in the slope a spin yesterday, hoping that a nice, hot noodle soup would be just the cure for my poor, raw throat.

Noodles on Seven is fairly small, with blonde wood walls and paneling, and only a handful of tables. It's designed as more of a takeout spot than an eat-in one, although eating in is fine. There's no table service, but you carry your own items on a tray to your table.

I ordered Wonton Noodle Soup. You have a choice of noodles, I opted for the wide Ho Fun ones. Impulsively, I also decided on an egg roll to munch on as my soup was prepared in the kitchen. I was just finishing up the crunchy goodness of the egg roll when they brought my soup out. In an enormous container.
The noodles were the perfect consistency, the soup piping hot but not scalding, and the wontons well-hidden. There was a large piece of bok choy on top, which I had to break apart. My only gripe is the lack of proper utensils - it would have been nice to have something more equipped to handle the bok choi and the large noodles, but I'm more than willing to let that bit slide. The warm silky broth was neither too bland nor was it too salty, and I was completely stuffed for under $8.

I also noticed on the menu that there are several other options to choose from. There's different kinds of congee, a variety of dishes over rice, and a selection of dim sum as well as the noodle soups. According to the counterwoman I spoke to, they are delivering at the moment.

I certainly plan on being a regular, especially as the days grow colder and my colds become more plentiful.
