Who doesn’t love noodles?
While noodles may be a staple of many cuisines, the way they are featured in this stir-fry dish sets them apart from dishes such as spaghetti and meatballs, chicken noodle soup, or ramen.
Picture a plate with delicious chicken sprinkled with scallions and other vegetables. That would be tasty on its own, but, with the addition of noodles, this dish could come from a dream! And these noodles are airy and delightful, savory and sweet.
Moonrise Izakaya is a local Japanese restaurant that takes great care to ensure its experience is enjoyable for customers. Every table is covered with colorful stickers, and the lively 90s music enhances the restaurant’s fun, late-night vibe.
A more-than-filling dish of Udon noodles with chicken (or another protein of your choice) costs $17.
The Dish: Udon Noodles
The Restaurant: Moonrise Izakaya (774 Amsterdam Ave on 98th Street)
