Unless you're Anthony Bourdain on a layover in London with a production team and fancy restaurants, you might like me, want to pick up some food that's warm and delicious but also cheap and quick. When I'm in London, there's one place that fits the bill: Ned's Noodles.
Sure it's a take-out Asian noodle place, but as my realtor keeps saying, with Ned's it's all about the location, location, location. Located in a alleyway just behind the London Eye and Jubilee Gardens, it's at the center of everything. Perfect for taking your bucket of fried noodles and bottled cola to the shores of the Thames where you can watch the sunset as Big Ben rings in the distance. As a ukulele player from Finland busks behind the park bench playing a melodic tune, you've just managed a English riverside dinner with live music for under 10£, and can be back at Heathrow in less than an hour by The Tube.
Of course, when I'm back State-side, and I'm craving my chicken yakisoba from Ned's, I close my eyes, reach for this recipe and enjoy:
