Noodle bars in South Florida
Karen and I went to Mama Asian Noodle Bar for lunch Saturday and thought it was pretty good although I don’t have a lot to compare it to. I’m usually pretty leery of pan-Asian restaurants. For us, it’s definitely better than 5 Spice. Here’s the link to their menu: http://mamaasiannoodlebar.com/
I asked our server and he said that Mama is owned by the same people who own Coco Asian Bistro in Ft Lauderdale (http://www.cocoasianbistro.com/) There are definitely some similarities in the two menus.
Marumi Sushi in Plantation (http://marumisushi.com/) has a variety of noodle dishes on their menu and we plan on trying some on our next visit. Everything else we’ve ordered has been great so I have high expectations for the Ramen, etc.
And just to set matters straight, my recommendation of Pho Hoa (above) was from 2007 when I first had Pho. Since then this has become one of my favorite meals and I search out good local Pho places whenever we travel. For this area, I recommend (in order) Saigon Cuisine, Saigon City, and Pho Binh. All are on State Road 7 in Margate and Lauderdale Lakes.

While not a true "noodle bar", Joy Noodles in West Palm is really quite good indeed. I go there for lunch/dinner at least once a week and they never fail to deliver a quality product at a great price.

This may not be exactly on target but my wife and I are big fans of Pho Hoa on 441 just north of Commercial in Tamarac. Sixteen varieties of Pho and several other noodle dishes as well (here's the menu - http://www.phohoa.com/menu_pics.html).

There is another tiny place located in Lauderdale Lakes that is excellant! If you were looking for Vietnamese style noodles then give this place a try.
Pho-Binh Vietnemeese Restaurant

Let me know what you think.
I dont know of anything up that way... However, "O" on Lincoln Road in South Beach has a noodle bar, and from what Ive heard, its pretty good. Ive eaten there before but went and sat down at the restaurant and had all different types of skewers and other items that were really good.
