Noodle Hunting for San Francisco Magazine

1_noodles_phoaosen_highres-014After two months of research, several hundreds of miles and many, many dishes, I wrote the cover story in the February 2013 issue of San Francisco magazine. Titled “The Great Noodle Quest,” it lists what may be — or, at least, what I think are — the 21 best Asian noodle dishes in the Bay Area, from pho and ramen (of course) to curry laksa. Dispute the findings, if you will. But I dare you to check out the boat noodles at Zen Yai Thai and the soba at Ippuku and tell me I’m wrong.
