As the name suggests, a meal at Noodles 101 Express isn’t a long affair. Despite being full service, you can easily get in and out of this stripmall spot in under a half hour. Your order here is the beef roll, which is essentially a fried pancake wrapped around slices of beef, cilantro, and a bean sauce. And if this sounds like a little thing that won’t fill you up, know that two people might struggle to take this down. Cash only
