I can't believe I haven't written about Noodle Theory yet. I almost cried when the one in my neighborhood went out of business and now I have a hard time eating anywhere else when I find myself near the one location in Rockridge. So to be clear, I LOVE Noodle Theory. I think my love is two-fold. First and foremost, I am kind of obsessed with noodles, especially when served in a soup. I crave them at least weekly...particularly Udon, but really any noodle with an Asian-inspired broth will do. Second, I don't like to feel guilty about my noodles. So greasy noodles with poor quality meat or barely identifieable vegetables just won't do. I like my noodles to be dressed up with high-class, respectable ingredients.
You would think in a city like San Francisco with such an deep Asian history and influence, noodles like this would be pretty easy to find. But I tell you, that just isn't true. I still haven't found a go-to place since the Noodle Theory in the Marina closed! So my noodle craving often goes unsatisfied...unless I make them myself which still just isn't the same.
