Yesterday Alex and I went to Noodles & Company for a fun lunch date. When choosing where to go for lunch I was going to pick one of our favorite Mexican restaurants but then decided it would be fun to go somewhere he has never been especially because I think everyone should try Noodles & Company! This used to be the only Noodles & Co. that I was able to go to because there wasn't one in my hometown but they recently opened one so my mom and I are super excited!
I snapped this photo as we were driving away. I am still getting used to the "take pictures of everything for the blog" thing. When we were in line waiting to order I told Alex that he couldn't dig
into his food until I took a picture of it and he was fine with it and
didn't think I was too crazy :)
Noodles & Company has several different dishes from around the
world. They have a variety of noodles, soups, sandwiches, and salads
that are either American, Mediterranean, or Asian. I chose the Japanese Pan Noodles with a Cucumber Tomato salad on the side and Alex ordered the Wisconsin Mac & Cheese.
The Japanese Pan Noodles are made up of caramelized udon noodles in a
sweet soy sauce, broccoli, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, Asian sprouts,
black sesame and cilantro. It is somewhat spicy and fills you up. Good
thing I had Alex there to help me finish it!
Alex ordered the Wisconsin Mac & Cheese with chicken and it came in a huge bowl. The mac & cheese is their number one seller and I definitely talked it up on the way there which probably led him to his decision on what to order. They make it with a blend of cheddar and jack cheeses, cream, and macaroni and then grate more fresh cheese on the top. When it came to the table it was still really warm so the cheese melted right in when he stirred it up.
It was one delicious lunch date!
