Small Bites: Use your noodle

Has it been awhile since you've visited The Noodle Shop? Try it again, especially if you have seasonal sinus issues. For that affliction, Xpress prescribes a bowl of Dan Dan noodle. The Noodle Shop makes a rather brothy version that gets its sinus-tingling spice from a paste laced with Sichuan peppercorns and various chilies with a touch of vinegar for extra kick. The Noodle Shop serves this soup with vegetables, plenty of basil and cilantro and a small jar of chili paste on the side if you require extra oomph. The restaurant also serves a spicy version of chicken noodle soup, and although it aspires to reach the Dan Dan's medicinal properties, it doesn't quite get there.

The Noodle Shop is located at 3 SW Pack Square. For more information, call 250-9898.
