Noodles and Company tasting

February 06, 2013

Noodles and Co
Food coma. We all experience and I’m a veteran of it. And I hate it. Sometimes I just want to have a good meal and have the perfect feeling of satiety, and not fall into a sluggish and uncomfortable fatigue. Noodles and Company offers the perfect balance of a delicious meal with fresh ingredients. A restaurant where you can enjoy noodles, salads, and sandwiches from around the world.

Noodles and Co has opened up another location in Austin at Bee Caves. I had the pleasure of stopping by to visit the new location and try out their menu. Thank you Noodles and Co Corporate for introducing me to their entire menu line up! The Bee Caves location at 3300 Bee Caves Rd has a large patio with tables, chairs, and umbrella. It’s fenced in so bring your little furry friends!

Chinese chop salad

We started the meal with the Chinese Chop Salad with sesame-soy tossed mixed greens, Asian sprouts, cabbage, red pepper, cucumbers, carrots, crispy wontons and black sesame.

Thai curry soup

The Thai Curry Soup is a  simple and silky smooth soup with tang and heat. Made with a yellow coconut curry broth, spinach, cabbage, mushrooms, tomato, red onions and rice noodles. The perfect complement to any of Noodle & Co’s salads.

Mediterranean wrap

The Med.

Juicy pieces of chicken, mushrooms, spinach, red bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, zippy Med dressing, cilantro and feta on flatboard. Perfect for those on the go or who want a quick bite to eat!

Penne rosa with parmesan coated chicken

Penne Rosa.

Spicy tomato cream sauce, penne pasta, mushrooms, tomato, spinach and wine with your choice of feta or parmesan. Choose from chicken, shrimp, or bbq pork. After coming to Noodles & CO for a year now, they still surprise me! The parmesan-crusted chicken is very good.

Truffle Mac and Cheese, noodles and company

Truffle Mac.

I could be an ambassador for this dish alone. I could go on and on about how this is my comfort food but I’ll leave it up to you to go and try it for yourself. Noodles & Company’s signature Mac & Cheese sauce spiked with white truffle oil, sautéed baby portabella mushrooms and topped with parmesan cheese and house-made toasted breadcrumbs.

Bangkok curry noodles

Bangkok Curry Noodles.

I special ordered this for my dad but the barbecue pork is corporate’s recommendation and I couldn’t agree with them more! Why do I love it? It’s soupy, coconutty, and smokey from the BBQ. Comes in a sweet coconut curry, broccoli, carrots, red pepper, onion, mushrooms, a light portion of rice noodles, served on cabbage with black sesame.
