How Much Is A Bowl Of Noodles Worth?

JayDK | Oct 10, 2013 08:24 PM

And why eat noodles anyway?
Rainy cold Seattle afternoon, what's better?
So I went to 4649 with a friend and had a bowl.
Ramen, no drinks, tax, and $5 tip = $35.
Don't get me wrong, the ramen was nice and the noodles were even imported from Japan! This would be a regular if I had an expense account.
So that gets me to thinking about noodles and the bang for the buck in the various places I like around town.
Canton Wonton House 608 S Weller makes some killer versions of soup in the traditional manner. I've been going there for more than 22 years, since before the old location got ruined in a big storm and when the old man and woman were running the shop. It's been the next generation in the family running things for some time now. Always excellent, always consistent, made by hand, right there. And their large is less than $7.
Or Il Corvo for outa site pasta from the mad creative mind of Mike Easton, made by hand right there for less than $10.
Little Uncle phad thai knocks it down for $8.80 right on the sidewalk!

So Chowheads. Weigh in on this if you please. Great Noodle Places You Love & Why. (Or the Zen version...How much is a bowl of noodles worth? Your Soul?)
