OB Noodle House Bar 1502

Sun shines down on us
On the hot pier my eyes close
Dream of pan fried smelt.

ob.noodle.1502.3793When I think of Ocean Beach I think of all those long days fishing off the pier.  My mom, brother, and me would stake out a spot and try to catch our dinner.  Those were good times when we caught smelt or bass.  What I knew I could always look forward to were the french fries at the cafe near the end of the pier.  Those crunchy salty snacks gave me strength to fish till dinner time. 

Cool chair.

So when friends kept telling me to go to OB Noodle House I just thought of those french fries I had from olden days.  Eventually enough friends kept telling me to go I had to see what the fuss was all about. 

ob.noodle.1502.3806Place was busy when I showed up for a late lunch.  Cool looking modern decor and very good service.  Menu had a lot of choices but I went with my go to dishes.

ob.noodle.1502.3799House special fried rice really nice flavor in the rice.  The beef and shrimp had very good flavor while the Chinese sausage was an explosion of flavors.  Some of the best Chinese sausage I have ever had.

ob.noodle.1502.3795Beef short rib was tender and had delicious flavor from the char, the glaze and marinade.

ob.noodle.4010Pork and Chinese sausage pan fried egg noodles had cabbage and parsley which was a strange but really delicious flavor combination.

I was really impressed by how good the food is.  Wish this place was around when we use to go fishing in Ocean Beach.  I found out about this place on Faye’s Fork.

    Did you eat all that by yourself?!!! Jealous. How was the parking that day?

    Those are beautiful pictures of the food Soo! I don’t remember that sauce on the side of the fried rice. The potstickers looked a bit burnt but I like how the filling looks to be all meat.

      I went 3 times Faye! It was really good so I wanted to try a bunch of stuff before writing it up. 🙂 Parking was fine was I went on Monday’s when it was cold or rainy. Now that it’s summer parking is likely crazy….

      Thanks! The food tasted as good as it looked! The potstickers didn’t taste burnt.

    Lovely photographs, equally lovely memories. How many times per week did you fish with your Mom and brother? Sounds fun.
