tank noodle.

i find it hard to believe i had never been to tank noodle until now, but alas. it is true. anyway ... even though it was the middle of summer when my pal (hi, ilana!!) & i went ... that didn't stop me from getting a hot bowl of soup. (exhibit a of not letting the heat stop my eating habits.)

so here's the scoop on tank noodle : "cultured around vietnam, china & asia, tank noodle restaurant thrives on providing the best traditional dish in chicago. built with the help of family, tank provides a cozy community on the corner of argyle & broadway. luxurious dishes for all times of the day at prices you cannot beat." perfection. gimme some nomz. 

here's what i had ...

fresh vegetarian spring rolls :
with spicy lemongrass tofu, noodles, lettuce, bean sprouts & mint.
can't go wrong. especially delicious with the fresh thai basil, mint, etc. so good. 

rice noodles soup :
with tofu & mixed vegetables ... broccoli, napa cabbage, carrots, pea pods, celery, baby corn, green onions & cilantro. 
mmm. noodle soup. it was good, but not amazing, tbh. in my mind, this is just the kind of soup bowl i want when i'm not feeling well. flavorful, but not overpowering. but since i was feeling fine on this day, i could have used a dish that packed a little more punch.

ilana got the curry soup, which.was.amazing. i wish i had ordered that. 99% sure it's vegan, but since i didn't ask, that's a question for next time. & there certainly will be a next time.
