Japanese Noodle places in South Coastal NJ>

Anyone know of a or better yet, some Japanese noodle places in Ocean County area? Live at LBI but do manage foodie run to the Marlton/Cherry Hill area about monthly, so that area would work as well.

      thanks Tapas52, I know you love the place and all, but a noodle house is noodles in broth, (think more like Pho).

        Quine funny you mentioned that Wang used to have Pho items on the Vietnamese soups, I've had them there a few times......I don't see them on the new menu.....must have been removed... The best I've had in soups like the ones your looking for was at Shanghai Bun in Matawan and worth the trip North..

          I am huge fan of Pho Eden in Cherry Hill. It is a total Vietnamese place, and amazing! Next door is a Indian grocery, where you can stock up on Indian candies and other supplies. Just down the road (towards Philly ) is a H Mart and also going east is Whole foods. Definitely makes a foodie trip worthy.

          1. re: Quine

            I'm also a huge fan of Pho Eden and will probably go there today on this miserable day for some soup. FYI there are now about 5 Vietnamese restaurants in the Cherry Hill area now.Eden is the original one and still my fav. Not to change the subject, but on your way back to LBI you should stop at King Wong in Marlton. It's on Route 70, right at the border of Medford (about a half mile west of the Dutch Market). Their soups are excellent, and so is the rest of the food. The hot and sour soup is about the best I've had, ever. Sorry, don't know of any noodle places in the CH area, but there are lots of very good Japanese restaurants.

              Great! I know that area somewhat and it is on the way to Pho Eden. I have also heard great things about the Dutch Wagon. I met the family while being evacuated from LBI during Irene. I had walked in the Hotel lobby (where we were lucky enough to get rooms, since by 2 pm that day all in the area were booked solid) and saw all these Amish folks with pillows and such. "OMG please tell me you did not get evacuated too?" I explained. It was a LOL because they were the folks who worked the Dutch Wagon and apparently stay each weekend at that hotel.

              1. re: Quine

                Dutch Wagon is a regular stop for me. It's only open Fri and Sat. They have the best roasted chickens and ribs, be sure to stop there. Also great bacon, pork and meat. I can't even buy chicken at the grocery store after buying my chicken (raw) from the Dutch Market. The taste is totally different. And the Amish sell their handmade fresh pretzels there that are not to be missed. Absolutely worth the stop. (don't bother with the produce guy outside....very expensive)

                1. re: mschow

                  Thank you for such great tips!!! Yeah, since I am that part of Rt 70 going toward Cherry Hill, I know I will be stopping at either or both H Mart and WF. Way better produce.

    2. there is a new place which is an offshoot of one in Phila., Sang Kee noodle house (IIRC), it opened a couple of weeks ago. On Kings Hwy (rt.41) just north of Rt.70, little strip mall on right side past a Sunoco gas station.
