Ran over to the new Noodles & Company that opened this week in Virginia Beach, VA.
Shelby and I have never eaten there before but we've heard of people who have enjoyed it. They had a grand opening where the first 50 people earned some kind of special treat, but I had meetings. No First Fifty for me.
After checking out the menu beforehand I decided to try the Indonesian Peanut Saute and Shelby got the Thai Hot Pot--that looked really good. One of the first things I noticed when we walked in is that local/regional craft beer and cider was being served in the restaurant. I thought that was pretty cool. Wine is served there too, Shelby almost ordered one just for the novelty of doing so in a fast food joint.
We ate in, once you order you get a number and seat yourself. It was pretty busy but we quickly found an empty table. Checking out the menu on the wall you'll see they serve noodles in all styles. You could get Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti and Sauce, Stir-fry--all kinds of ways. Our food was brought to our table. The portions were good and it was tasty. It's near my office, I'll probably come by here for lunch sometime.
Check it out sometime.
p.s. - Oh, Shelby got 3 chopsticks in her package. What's that mean?
