The very first time I had REAL tomato-basil soup for the first time at The Noodle Cafe when I was about 12 or 13. This little gem is in a small suburb of Chicago (where I grew up) and to this day it’s still one of my all time favorite restaurants.
There are a few reasons for this: 1) The food is amazing. I can rarely say I’ve never had a bad meal when I’m taking about restaurants, but this is one of the very few I can say that about. 2) All of there food is made from scratch…including their pasta (duh) 3) The restaurant itself is teeny tiny…teeny tiny in the best way possible, with only a handful of tables. 4) They have some of the most personal, friendly staff you could ask for, with amazing service.
