    Noodle Theory Website

    Noodle Theory Exterior

    Noodle Theory is a casual noodle Asian restaurant in Oakland. Their San Francisco location closed. It is run by a former chef of The House, Louis Kao. They use quality ingredients like Niman Ranch meats.

    Noodle Theory Interior

    Decor, Vibe – Modern, simplistic decor with nice lighting and dark woods. Half of the room has high seating, with benches that are hard to get comfortable on. Families, couples, nearby locals in their 20′s and 30′s were eating dinner.

    Website Noodle Theory Menu

    Picks:

    Noodle Theory Pork Belly Ramen

    Slow Roasted Niman Ranch Pork Belly Ramen ($15) in a savory and very strong Pork Miso Broth had good amounts of pork belly that was on the very lean side. The egg noodles were plentiful and done correctly.

    Noodle Theory Coconut Curry Udon

    Grilled Niman Ranch Beef Udon ($14) in a Coconut Lime Curry Broth had a nice looking broth that was luxurious and a tad spicy. Good amounts of tender meat and perfectly cooked noodles.

    Noodle Theory Grilled Portobello Mushroom

    Grilled Portobello Mushroom over Spinach Noodles ($13) in a miso broth with white truffle oil is a vegetarian dish with lots of green noodles over a pretty strong miso broth.  Not spicy and a good dish for those who want to avoid meat. Mushrooms and bok choy were very good.
    Noodle Theory Quinoa Salad

    Quinoa Salad ($9) in a Lime Sesame Oil Vinagrette with Avocado, Shitake, and Cucumbers is almost a cous cous like salad that was very refreshing.

    Noodle Theory Raspberry Crisp

    Nectarine Raspberry Crisp ($8) with Vanilla Bean Gelato was excellent, one of the best and largest crisps we have had. Lots of fresh fruit and crunchy topping.

    OK:

    Noodle Theory Cold Soba Noodles

    Cold Soba Noodles ($8) in a roasted Sesame Dressing with Asparagus had lots of noodles and little asparagus. Pretty thick and heavy sesame dressing made this appetizer a little heartier.
    Noodle Theory Rice Flat Noodles

    Thai Basil Beef with Fresh Flat Rice Noodles ($15) was very spicy even though it was indicated. Noodles were like Chinese chow fun and beef were small chunks. Lots of peppers, carrots, sesame seeds, onions, and other veggies.

    Noodle Theory Black Cod

    Miso Marinated Black Cod over Garlic Noodles ($18) had the classic and excellent The House style Black cod but the noodles were so garlicy, they were spicy.  If they could tone this down, the dish would be great.

    Pans:
    None

    Noodle Theory had friendly accessible service.  Prices are on the high side for noodles but the quality and quantity was high.  We have no problem recommending this place but warn that many items are on the spicy side. Compared to noodle legends like Santa Ramen in San Mateo, the broth, meat, and noodles are not on the authentic side.  This environment is far nicer and the menu much more varied.
