The Whole Kit and KaNoodle

Nestled in a small retail strip on Park Blvd in Plano is a quaint little Asian restaurant trying to appeal to every ethnicity that falls under the “Asian” demographic, including Korapanese.  It’s a weird joint because it’s decorated nicely and very well kept but there are minor surprises that catch you off guard.  For example, they serve you your food on nice plates but you have to get yourself silverware and crappy paper napkins.  They have a huge menu featuring Thai, Korean, Chinese and Japanese dishes and even have a happy hour where you can score some half price crab rangoons, potstickers or just say Phuket and get the mee krob.  They do not serve alcohol at this happy hour but they do have Sriracha sauce which is the equivalent of three Ichibans.

Savory dipping sauce for added bonus!

I’ve been a gringo when it comes to ordering thus far at Noodles.  I’ve stayed with the safe bets of pad thai, pad see eaw, cashew chicken and curry.  I have to admit for the price the quality is badass.  Ricky say’s El Paso is badass too but that’s beside the point.  They are fast too.  The average meal lasts about 20 minutes.  Unfortunately, the dining room is a no tard out zone.  If you want to go celebrate a co-worker moving to Alaska or a recent Cupcake Throwdown win, this is not the place for you.  If you want to quietly reflect on Patrick Swayze’s passing (I can’t watch Ghost ever again – too soon), this is the place for you.

Do yourself a favor and end your meal with the mango and sticky rice.  You really don’t need it because you will be full from the appetizer and rice dish but come on, we’re Americans.  We eat in excess and we don’t know when to quit.  U-S-A!  U-S-A!  U-S-A!

You’re so hilarious. I think Thai ppl might own this joint. Maybe that’s why you enjoy the Thai stuff so much? Or maybe it’s Korean ppl that own it. Who knows, at least they’re not claiming to be an American Deli while the Russian mob is ‘baking’ egg spun rolls in the back.

I’m getting a tat on my stomach that says ‘Foodgarbl 4 Life’ in Old English font.

I especially enjoyed your comment regarding eating sticky rice and mango at the end of your meal, it reminded me of my mentor and role model, Miley Cyrus.
