Authentic Asian Noodle Soup West of Boston?

pattylover May 26, 2012 06:51 AM

Any recommendations?
Most of the places in Chinatown where I've had noodle soups have been fine or great but haven't found anything good in MetroWest.
Uncle Cheung's is OK. Noodles and soup are decent, toppings are so-so but I can't get over the noodles coming in a relatively small bowl, heaped up high and an american metal spoon versus a chinese soup spoon.
Sichuan Gourmet didn't have great noodle soup either of the couple of times I tried it. I had the spicy beef noodle soup.
EO Noodles in Framingham was also just OK.
Le's in Chestnut Hill is great for Pho but they are likely closing in 6 months.
Any other decent experiences out there?

    Pho and Spice in Waltham had excellent pho the one time I went there. I think the owner also owns Pho and Rice in Somerville.

      "No. 1 Noodle House" in Newton Center has laksa which is spicy and coconutty - great on a rainy day.

        The spicy seafood udon at Oiishi Chestnut Hill is really good.

          The Sichuan beef noodle soup at Red Pepper is pretty good. Better than SG. The tongue gets that numbness that's expected.

            "noodles in house spicy beef soup" oh man! cant believe you brought up this Red Pepper soup.

            it might be the best cold weather soup around. i like their food in general but get this every time i go.

            I forgot to mention one other: Oga's Nabeyaki Udon is great.
