You may not be able to tell from my blog but I am serious about my Asian food. I am even more serious about my carbohydrates and Chubby Noodle did not disappoint!
I was super early for a comedy show last week so I decided to look for something to eat to kill time. When I search for food I don’t just choose and move on, I strategize. I did a quick search and saw that Chubby Noodle was near the comedy spot – perfect. First of all, they play hip hop music, thank you! Secondly the atmosphere was really cute and looked like a little cafe with an Asian flare. I sat down and immediately ordered calamari.
The calamari was $14 which I though was steep but when it arrived I quickly found out why. The portion is huge (for San Francisco) and the seafood was extremely fresh. This was hands down the best calamari I have ever had. The sauce was amazing and the jalapenos tossed in added that perfect amount of heat. My mouth is watering thinking about it! By the time my entree came I was so stuck on eating my calamari that I could barely switch gears.
For my entree I ordered Spicy Garlic Noodles with shrimp added in. My only complaint – they weren’t spicy. I asked the server to make it extra spicy and he said they would add extra jalapenos. There were about 4 jalapeno slices in my noodles and I’m pretty sure that’s not extra. That being said, I did not complain because the noodles were amazing. The flavor of the brown sauce was on point and the noodles were fat and fresh. Lots of Asian eateries overcook seafood but the shrimp here were amazing!
The service was so friendly, the music was great, the food was even better. Chubby Noodle is officially on my go to list to bring people who visit SF. It is a must try!
