Noodles and Company
So I made a resolution not to eat out so often and then Noodles and Co. opened down the street. Unfortunately, this place is not good for helping me keep my resolution. First the food is very good for semi-fast food. Second, the prices are affordable( $5-$8 for entrees). Third, the portion size and the calorie content is actually in a healthful range. And lastly, the people who work there are friendly, helpful and professional. I've eaten there about 4 times now and I have had the Bangkok curry, Chinese chop salad, Pesto Cavatappi w/chicken breast, Penne Rosa w/meatballs and mac and cheese. My least favorite was the chicken breast and the mac and cheese. The chicken was too over done and the mac and cheese had grated cheese on the top plus a cheese sauce. My favorites so far are the Chinese chop salad and the meatballs. The salad was a real nice blend of veggies and the dressing had a nice spicy kick. The meatballs were very flavorful and generous in size and quantity. The pasta though not al dente, is tender yet not overcooked.Though I am holding myself to my resolution I am glad there is a healthy, affordable and pleasant alternative in my neighborhood.
