It's cold... I'm craving noodle soup take-out

unionsquaregrl Dec 8, 2006 08:49 PM

I'm hoping for suggestions in the Cambridge, Somerville, Allston areas... don't feel like driving to Chinatown to pick up my usual roast pork soup with dumplings from Hong Kong Eatery.

Any ideas, fellow Chows?

    The Porter Exchange bldg in Porter Square is chock full of noodle soup options. The ramen place in there is pretty good. Super 88 in Allston is another options.

      You can pick up some Pho at Pho Pasteur in Harvard Sq. (or is it called Le's now?). Like goldenboy mentioned Porter Sq. is also a good idea. You can't go wrong with a large bowl of Nabeyaki Udon (sp?) from Ittyo's in Porter Sq.

        Porter Square is perfect... I'm dying for Udon noodles and I haven't been there for years.

              I've never managed to get that soup, had to settle for the pork one, sniff. Is it really spicy? I'll have to try again.

                not too spicy (which is fine by me), but it is sooo good on a cold winter night. i work in davis square, i might try calling ahead before heading there.

                  Well they do have a chili caddy. Will have to try again soon. Thanks for reminding me. Not that the pork one is a slouch.

              Just posted recently about the soup noodle at Quingdao garden in North Cambridge. The ground pork with chinese veggies is delicious. Soup noodle with pork chop is the same base with strips of lightly seasoned fried porkchops. Soooo good!

                The tom yum noodle soup and beef noodle soup at Tamarind House near Porter Square are fab. Unfortunately, these are the things I like on the menu, and even more unfortunately, they are only available at lunchtime.

                  sobbbbb.....this is the danger of visiting japan...coming back to cambridge is hard ;)

                  second the porter exchange mall, particularly Ittyo...(sadly enough i don't have to order anymore when I go there, they just put my usual stuff on the table for me....) and super 88 in Alston - mighty tasty for a food court, that's for sure. The Misono Grill korean stall and the vietnamese stall there probably rank near the top in tastiness in Boston.
