AMC and i ate here for lunch.. at lunch time during the week there was much more of a line of people ordering things, and just the one cashier. i think that the line would move along faster if the cashier didn’t talk as much. i think it would help if they printed the list of vegetables that are available as an add on, rather than having the cashier need to read off at least 20 items. . 🙂 but once we sat down our food came really quickly.

i ordered the sesame lo mein and added avocados, olives and onions.. in hindsight, the olives should have been let out.. kalamata olives are too strong for lo mein. but it wasn’t horrible.

AMC ordered the beef stroganoff. she said the meet was delicious, but the “sauce” needed something… it wasn’t as creamy/thick as she is used to. again, she said it wasn’t horrible, she rather liked it, but next time she would try another menu item..

we also ordered the cotton candy!! woooot! or as they call in down under, “fairy floss”.

i would also like to note that someone from the restaurant noticed that we were taking photos of our food, and wanted to know why. we told him, “the blog” of course!

My roommates and i went to nothing but noodles on saturday. I believe the restaurant just opened. i was expecting counter service.. but we were pleasantly surprised. we were greeted in the entryway by what i would imagine was the owner or a manager. he gave us a take out menu and explained that we could look at that menu, or the wall to decide what we wanted to order. i knew i wanted to order, their pad thai noodles as i find that syracuse is lacking in some delicious pad thai. for $6.99 you order the noodles and proteins are an extra charge. i added tofu but asked if they could deep fry the tofu instead of putting in on raw and they happily accommodated me.

we placed our orders and they gave us our cups to fill ourselves in the soda machine and a laminated number to place in the holder on our table. we found our own table and got our own silverware, drinks and napkins.

it was not long before our appetizers arrived. we ordered thai lettuce wraps and cranberry spinach salad. the thai lettuce wraps were great. the chicken mixture seemed like it had water chestnuts diced up inside it. it was very tasty, a little on the salty side, but not too much. i believe it came with 5 pieces of lettuce, it was perfectly proportioned to the fillings.

my roommates got the cranberry spinach salad. it looked tasty, they remarked that it had a little bit of spicy kick to it.

we didn’t have to wait long till our meals arrived. i ordered the pad thai with tofu, it was very decent… next time i order it i think i will ask for more scallions, but the sauce was great, the noodles were good, and i am glad they were able to accommodate my fried tofu wishes.

my parents got the pad thai with steak, and spaghetti and meatballs.. the steak was very tasty i heard. the spaghetti looked great, one thing i noticed about that dish was that there was plenty of sauce. so much so that there was some leftover when he had eaten all the noodles.

the portions were very large and keeping in line with their “do it yourself” utensils, there were styrofoam containers so that you could take your own leftovers.

we didn’t have room for dessert, but i noticed that a majority of people were getting the bowl piled high with cotton candy. and for 92 cents i can understand why.

i will definitely be going back here, i was impressed with the food, the concept and the quick service.
