I’ve never been to Noodle World in Alhambra, but just read a terrific article about it in the L.A. Times. The article warmed my heart so much that I decided to add a link.
Excerpt: A chubby, hamburger-toting diner statue in an Asian restaurant? For Thai American owner John Mekpongsatorn, it’s a perfect symbol of the Southern California melting pot he wants his chain to reflect.
I moved from Okinawa to Los Angeles when I was 8-years old and I remember going to Bob’s Big Boy with my grandfather… and feeling very proud to be an “American”.
Now I can’t wait to visit Noodle World and feel proud to be an Asian/American!
