...that kind of noodle just soothes the soul! I was really feeling the lunchtime vibe today, and I consulted the list of restaurants I still wanted to visit for the Project. This time, I thought to call ahead and make sure Betty's Wok and Noodle was open before I hoofed it up Huntington Ave.

It was a late lunch for me, about 3 p.m., and the restaurant was all but deserted when I arrived. With the exception of the one guy in the front reading the newspaper, I had the place to myself. No matter — I'm OK entertaining the waiters on my own. And considering the great things I've heard from fellow students and professors alike, an empty dining room sure wasn't going to stop me.

Nice-looking place — kind of a combination of 50s decor and a more modern Asian theme. Which, I suppose, fits in nicely with the concept behind the restaurant. They plug it as Asian-Latino fusion cuisine. But the Frankie Valli-esque soundtrack piped in over the loudspeakers was just a little bit anachronistic. Fits the 50s part, not so much the Asian or Latino parts. But hey, it worked.

My sweet and salty peanut noodles were really good. I could pretend they made the dish special since I was the only one there, but I bet not. I would definitely go back for seconds. And thirds. (Added bonus: The food itself was only about $10 - not bad at all for lunch.)
