Noodle On It
Wooden Ladle, the sister restaurant of West Chase’s very successful Zen Bistro, features an eclectic range of Asian dishes paired with many local craft beers. With all the noodles being homemade, we suggest you try Beef Pho with sliced beef and brisket, served in a savory and aromatic broth with rice noodles, scallions and sliced onions, and garnished with bean sprouts, cilantro,basil, jalapeno slices and lime wedge.
