Best Noodles in Boston?
Hey, I live and go to school in the Boston area, and i was looking for a good noddle place. I tried Noodle St. by BU, and it was good but our meal was tainted by friends showing up an hour late. I am not looking for any specific in types of cuisine, just some good noddles. Oh, and for those who have not had the chance to try, I recommend the Rice Barn in Needham Center, where the old Chinese restaruant was.
I'm no expert, but some locals whose expertise on the subject I trust have had good things to say about Ken's Ramen in the Super 88 in Allston. It's an actual sit-down restaurant separate from the excellent food court there (which features my favorite banh mi in town, at Pho Viet).
Noodles? My department. But there are so many different kinds of noodles? Stir-fry or in soup?
To name a few of my favorites: Ken's in Allston for Japanese ramen ; Beijing Star in Waltham for northern style Chinsee hand-cut noodle; Shangri-la in Belmont for Taiwanese style.
But you want to have noodle in Boston area, I would recomend you going to any Vietnamese restaurants or Hong Kong Cafe in Chinatown. I also had been to Potluck once for Fujian style noodle. It was very light and tasty. But I wouldn't not go back until the temperate falls back to the 70's.
Mmmm noodles! The best noodles I've had recently were at Fu Loon in Malden. Peking Meat Sauve Noodle- gpicy, great texture. I've also ordered the Noodles with Spicy Szechuan Sesame Sauce but that is not for spice wimps (which I kind of am). Here are some place links:

Another vote for Ken's Ramen, which is as good as noodles get in this town. I also have to mention the Shanghai noodles at King Fung Garden on Kneeland Street in Chinatown. The first time you go in there, you will notice that every single table has ordered both the scallion pancake and the Shanghai noodles, no matter what else they're having. Listen to the wisdom of the masses on this one: those are not only the best things on the menu, they're the best iterations of each dish in the area.
