For a night out with friends - especially if you want a louder situation - Chubby Noodle is ideal. The menu isn’t too extensive, and most options have some sort of meat or fish (we recommend the Korean pork tacos or spicy garlic noodles with added fried chicken), but there are salads if you have vegetarians in your group. The menu’s sarcastic descriptions of sake (“drier than California’s reservoirs last year”) are amusing, and if you’re teeing up a Saturday full of day-drinking, make a reservation for the bottomless dim sum brunch.
