So, when I gripe about local establishments on the westside, I seem to forget the ones that have been around awhile. Somehow, they’re so ingrained in my subconscious that I forget they are the kind of establishment I am constantly looking for.

I’ve always enjoyed Deli Mart.  East coasters tell me it’s the place for an “authentic” deli experience, and even if I don’t know the difference, I know its darn good.  My favorite is the turkey sandwich.  Maybe not such an adventurous choice, but certainly a delicious one. While you’re there, check out their imported cheeses and great products from around the world, I’m sure there’s just about something for everyone.

On Friday night, I crossed the river to the westside. And I stayed there. I had a nice dinner at a local restaurant. Saw a movie at Cottonwood. I am so pumped to not have to cross the river. Usually I cross by now.

So this will be the oddest review ever.

The combined KFC- Taco Bell on Paradise near Universe is good. Yes, KFC is good again. I think it has something to do with the large amounts of customers- a drive-thru trip is a minimum of five minutes. Somehow, that keeps the chicken fresh. Weird eh? I stopped going near any KFC in any town years ago, yet I keep finding myself there- although those bowls where everything is thrown in still scare me. I’ll stick to my traditional three piece and biscuit meal.

I am really disturbed that I just blogged about Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Oh Spontaneitea!

I love the tea at Einstein’s.

That’s all. I am addicted to Einstein’s Spontaneitea.

I want to drink it every day.

I have recently made two visits to the Asian Noodle Bar at 318 Central.

My verdict? Yummy! 

Tonight we ordered the vegetable spring rolls. I have to say that the sweet chili sauce that comes with the spring rolls is delicious.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a tasty peanut sauce with my spring rolls, but the sweet chili sauce  is a nice surprise with a lovely taste.

I ordered the Spicy Sesame Noodles with Tofu and my companion ordered the Spicy Basil Noodles with Beef.  We sampled one another’s dishes and were both quite happy with the results. The Spicy Sesame Noodles are udon noodles with ample amounts of tofu and vegetables.  I added some leftover sauce from the spring rolls and the result was a delight to the taste buds.

The ambiance of the restaurant is sleek and modern and the service is friendly.  The restaurant is open until 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights and until 9:30 the rest of the week (including Sundays).

Next time that you’re looking for a fresh Asian fix, check out the Asian Noodle Bar.
