Ming’s has moved its noodles and more a bit north and out of the rail yard boxcar to a chic, bright spot with a spacious patio. With Asian noodles telling slippery tales in all genres, you’re sure to find a version that suits your appetite, from gluten free and vegan rice noodles to mung bean. Order this to go: Whether a bowl of noodles is in the works or not, don’t miss the steamed buns with pork belly, a perfect bite that beats just about any taco in town. Cold noodles are a good bet for traveling meals, since you need not worry about hot soup sloshing; the sesame-rich Szechuan egg noodles have a bit of crunch from cucumbers and carrots and marinated edamame. And for a hot, steamy version on a cold day, go for the sweet potato noodle soup, spicy and satisfying. Pro tip: The basic bowls are great, but for individualized character, order with add-ons like a fried egg, your favorite grilled protein, even an extra helping of sweet mild kabocha squash. The menu helpfully lists all possible allergens for carefree dining. We suggest a sturdy travel box or cooler to keep all that delicious broth contained.
