Why? Maybe my love of pasta/noodles/dumplings. Maybe because SP tried Ramen Bar a few weeks ago and ever since has mentioned them nearly every day as a place I really need to try because they were so gosh darn tasty. Maybe I was getting a little tired of him talking about noodles. Maybe because we were in Squirrel Hill last weekend for a nephew's 5th birthday party and decided to take advantage of being in the area to visit a few of our favorite places and have dinner at a new place. In this case, dinner at Everyday Noodles.
Everyday Noodles makes their noodles. When you enter, you can see the noodle makers behind a window, tossing and whacking noodles around, stuffing and shaping dumplings, entertaining the diners. The short rib was tender and yummy, the noodles were very tasty though quite long so I had to make lots of slurping noises and make a splashy mess as I bit noodles off my chopsticks. My favorite part - I didn't find the consomme too salty, which is a frequent complaint of mine.
It's a fun & friendly place, casual. It can get loud and you'll hear your neighbor's conversations. The servers and owner are friendly, coming around frequently to talk about the decor or the food or just whatever. We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back.
