Just writing a quick post for ya. I finally checked out the new Noodle & Noodle restaurant which was only two blocks from my office in Pasadena. Before going there, I read about the place on Yelp to see what it was all about.
Noodle & Noodle is owned by a Thai restaurant called Nine & Nine, which used to occupy Noodle’s current location before moving a few doors down. I walked past Noodle last week and found that they have ramen on their menu. Knowing that they are owned by a Thai restaurant, I knew I couldn’t expect authentic ramen but I had to try it! And I’ve eaten at Nine before and thought the food was pretty good.
There were few people in the restaurant when I arrived. I sat myself at the bar area, even though it just faced a wall. I was pretty fascinated by their collection of Tonka trucks!

I know, I know. Super cheesy title. Remember that show though? Carmen Sandiego? Nevermind…
It was Sean’s birthday week and we have been going on little road trips up and down California. We went to Solvang and Santa Barbara the other day then to San Diego this past Friday. I knew there wouldn’t be much for ramen up in Santa Barbara, especially in Solvang (Dutch town USA) but San Diego had to have some!
We started the day with a museum tour of the USS Midway. If you like museums, ships, airplanes and war history, this place can be pretty fun!
Joan here. Lately, people have been asking me about my favorite ramen places. After having realized that we’ve been to more than twenty ramen places so far, I think this is a good time for me to start one of many blogs on our current favorites. This list will be updated every several months or so. Each restaurant listed will include a link to a blog or two about it. I hope this will come in handy anytime you’re out looking for ramen!
Hey! Tanya here. My input might run a bit small but I look forward to trying out new places.
