What's for Lunch? Noodle Oodle


Londonist asks that most pressing of daily concerns: where to go on your lunch break.

Not the most graciously eaten dish in London, but Noodle Oodle's “Szechuan Dan Dan LaMien” (served with peanut, sesame and shredded chicken, £6) hits the spot when you're in a rush for lunch and hoping not to tread too far beyond the fiver threshold. For six quid, this super spicy (seriously, you could work up a sweat) soup with doughy hand-pulled noodles offers a massively slurp-worthy meal.

The same spot hitting effectiveness could be applied to a number of items on NO's menu. The Chinese onion pizza (£2.50) is a yummy option to consider but perhaps not the best idea if you intend to return to an interactive office afterwards.

Service is speedy and without ceremony, Gordon Ramsay likes 'em and the head chef, Fei Wang, won a Guinness World Record for the most number of bowls of hand-pulled noodles in under three minutes.

We had lunch at Noodle Oodle 25 Oxford Street W1D 2DW — THIS BRANCH IS NOW CLOSeD — there's a halal version at 106 Queensway.
