Miami Noodle Shop?

We have a LONG layover in Miami on our way to South America and wanted to seek out a good noodle shop for a meal. Something similar to Republic in NYC or Penny's in Chicago if anyone is familiar with those. Any suggestions? We will rent a car and go anywhere.

  1. No such creature that I know of. A common refrain on the FL board of late has been lack of a good noodle shop.

      You could try the downstairs lunch noodle place at O Asian on Miami Beach. I can't say that it's a particularly worthy choice but they do have noodles galore. I have high hopes that one day we will have our own Wagamama.

    2. You're coming to Miami and looking for a noodle shop? It's like going to Tokyo and looking for black beans and rice.

        hahahahah got that right lax!

        Osian is the only one I can think of and Lincoln Road is well worth a stroll if you want to feel the pulse of South Beach. Have the cabbie drop you at the Ritz Carleton sobe go East to the beach and check out our turquoise waters, walk one block West to
        O asian for some quick noodles, then keep walking West to the first pedestrian mall in America for the next mile, catch a cab or a movie(not sure how long?) on Alton Road and Lincoln, and/or bop into the legendary Epicure market across Alton just North of Lincoln for a nice stroll...BIG TIME layover killer!

        Welcome 2 Miami...

      2. Here's the website for the O Noodle Shop, on Lincoln Rd:
        I haven't been, so I have no idea whether it's good or not.

        But yeah, what lax2mia said is right. Miami isn't exactly known for its noodles.

        1. Thanks for all the responses. I agree that noodles in Miami is a bit misdirected. However, we wanted one last noodle fix before two weeks of Peruvian cuisine. I think we will try O Asian's Noodle Shop.
