Yesterday, my daughter's basketball team had their third and final game for the all-weekend Tiger Youth Basketball Tournament in Montebello. They were 0-3, oh well. Afterwards, we went with some of the families to get a bite to eat. One of the father's, Eric, was born and raised in Alhambra (very close to Montebello) and they escorted us to Noodle World, 700 West Valley Blvd., Alhambra CA 91801, 626-293-8800. What a funny place. First of all, if you've never ventured into the Alhambra area to eat, it's a great adventure into what has become a huge Asian-market. Just find Valley Blvd. and drive up and down. The Asian demo is off the chart here. Noodle World, once upon a time, was a Bob's Big Boy and they incorporated the fiberglass statue of Big Boy into their decor (Yes, that's correct!). It's pretty wild to see it installed on the east wall. They have fat noodles, Pho, Chow mein, and as you can imagine, most Asian noodle dishes. It's really fun, big and colorful inside. My favorite was the Mango Smoothie. It was so delicious. I highly recommend it. Oh yes, naturally, they have Boba as well.
