Who Is Mr. Noodle?


Better question may be: What is Mr. Noodle?

Yesterday while waiting in line to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in Westwood, I had time to ponder Mr. Noodle. I have not eaten there and according to their website he is unique–the only one in LA. The longer I looked at him, the more I wondered “How do you dress a noodle as a chef?”

For a close up of Mr. Noodle, join me after the jump.


And how does a noodle have such big shoulders? I will try the food there soon just because the logo intrigues me so. If you’ve been, please tell me how it is in the comments.

  1. FYI, Mr. Ramen has a beak and webbed feet AND wears a chef’s hat. He also has a family of mini mes and they wear grass skirts and funny outfits.

    Check it out, 1st street between Central and San Pedro.

  2. i know a girl who used to date mr. noodle. she says he’s a real dick but she’s kind of crazy so it’s a real toss-up.

  3. They have a mascot now? He’s funny looking. I haven’t been in a couple of years, but back then Mr. Noodle was decent, cheap, pan-Asian food, with biggish portions free refills on Thai iced tea and coffee. I recommend it :)

  4. He’s called Mr. Noodle because of his big…brain! Haven’t you ever heard the phrase, “Use your noodle”? His brain fills up that entire hat he’s wearing.

  5. Use to be a regular to Mr. Noodle because they have great food and still charge student prices. I’ve never had garlic chicken better than served here. Them and Sak’s Teriyaki on Glendon are the places I go to get a good satisfying meal. Don’t expect gourmet, just expect to be full.

  6. I like Mr. Noodle much more than Noodle Planet in Westwood. Service: 8. Ambiance: 9. Food: 8.5. Cost: 10.

  7. Well, considering he lives right next to Sir Diddy Riese, he’s got either the best or worst real estate in the ENTIRE world, or at least Westwood.

  8. If it wasn’t for Mr. Noodle, I might have starved my way through graduate school. Thanks for keeping my belly happy, Mr. N!

  9. He looks a little like the stay-puft marshmallow man. Maybe they are brothers. Both in the food industry.

  10. Oddly enough, I’d never noticed the weird character. Mr. Noodle is one my favorite places to eat in Westwood, ’cause it’s affordable and yummy.
