The Loop

Noodles, Chicago

111 N. State St.
Chicago, IL, 60602, United States
TEL: (312) 781-4483

With a book like Takashi's Noodles under his belt, it makes sense to assume that chef Takashi Yagihashi knows his way around a noodle, whether its the Asian pan variety or Wisconsin-style mac & cheese. At this quick-serve restaurant, located on the 7th floor of Macy's, Yagihashi's ramen dishes (think extremely authentic Japanese, not the instant microwavable stuff) are the bedrock of the menu, particularly the braised pork with bamboo shoots and baby spinach. Other fan-favorites include the Shoyou Combo with potstickers. The heaping portions, flavorful broths, and affordable prices make Noodles an ideal lunch stop in the Loop—especially for shoppers.

Insider Tip:

If Noodles piques your appetite for authentic ramen, consider also paying a visit to upscale Takashi in nearby Bucktown.
