This U District noodle spot might project a cafeteria feel, but the noodle dishes are nothing like your late night dorm take-out. Whether bathed in oil, hot meat, or sauteed vegetables, the noodles here are perfectly al dente, enough so that you'll find your generous three-fistfuls of carbs not noodles enough. The herb and spice combination in every dish is also notable, especially so in underrated hits like the pepper-spiked, hand-ripped lamb salad.
