The Pho Files: Oodle Noodle
I have never had a really good experience in a fast food noodle place. In fact, I tend to avoid them unless I am really in a rush and it is a convenient option. Earlier this week, I ventured into the 170 Street location of Oodle Noodle for the first time. Someone I trust convinced me it was excellent. I was impressed with the selection of noodle dishes from different parts of the world, but I was craving one thing, and one thing only: pho. I was thrilled that they have it, and at the very low price of $6.95. Although I was sceptical, I ordered a bowl of Pho Bo, which has well done brisket. It was the only choice, as opposed to the standard medium done sliced beef I usually order - I suspect that Oodle Noodle is going after pho newbies who may be alarmed at the sight of pink meat floating around in their soup.
