To say that the menu at Noodle Boy is minimal is probably understating things. You can get noodle soup. You can get noodles without soup. You can get soup without noodles. That's pretty much the end of the story, unless you include a perfunctory dish of Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce. See full review. The soup, based on long-boiled pork bones as surely as the best tonkotsu ramen broth, is good, even potent. The rice noodles, I believe, are there only as a sop to the gluten-intolerant, the only people who have reason to avoid the egg noodles - wire-thin, chick-yellow, exquisitely tangled, with a snap and a springiness you never quite expect from dough in broth. Are there vegetables, a boiled egg, a handful of bean sprouts in the broth? There are not. Broth and noodles. The Noodle Boy has spoken.
