King of Noodles

$$$$(415) 566-8318

With its bright yellow walls and TV playing movies like Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, King of Noodles can feel as much like a teen hangout as it does a restaurant. The menu is huge and includes everything from soup dumplings to chow mein, but we come here for the noodle soup. Our favorite is the spicy beef version that’s cloudy with chilis and spices, but isn’t overly hot. The beef is tender and delicious and the noodles are perfectly chewy. One bowl is enough for two people and only costs $9 and on a lazy Sunday afternoon, this is where you should be.
