Friday, October 6th is National Noodle Day in the United States! Get your noodle on in Tampa with some delicious noodle eats—some with rich broth, some with scrumptious sauce, some stir fried! Listed below are some of the best noodle establishments in Tampa to go to celebrate National Noodle Day deliciously!

Ichicoro Ramen Restaurant

The Tonkotsu ramen from Ichicoro Ramen Restaurant is not your average cup noodle that you’re thinking of! With a rich pork broth, grilled pork belly, an egg, and bamboo shoots as toppings, these hearty noodles pack so much flavor. If you’re looking for something different, try Hiyashi Soba, which is a cold, broth-less ramen made from buckwheat noodle!

Café de Siam

When you think of Thai food you probably think of Pad Thai, right? Well, if you're looking for something equally scrumptious, try the Pad See Ew at Cafe de Siam. This mom-and-pop shop makes this dish with rice noodles, your choice of protein (chicken, pork, and beef), some Chinese broccoli, and stir-fries it with love.  If you’re still looking for Pad Thai though, they have two sizes to choose from: Appetizer and Dinner! YUM!

Osteria Natalina 

Authentic Italian food, freshly made pasta, possibly the best Italian noodles in Tampa? Yes, please! Other than their list of delicious, classic Italian kinds of pasta, Osteria Natalina has Le Linguine Alla Vongole, a dish serving seafood over linguini in a light clam sauce! If you’re feeling a night out for an Italian noodle dinner for National Noodle Day, a visit to Osteria Natalina might be for you!

Saigon Deli

Looking for Vietnamese food? Go to Saigon Deli and order the Pho Dac Biet! The Special Pho is a rice noodle dish packed with meat such as beef and brisket. Tendon, tripe, and meatballs sit inside the beef broth bath and are served with a side of aromatic vegetables to add into your pho! If you’re looking to be filled for lunch, going to Saigon Deli will be sure to have you lulled into a nice noodle-induced nap!

One Family Korean Restaurant

If you can handle spicy and want to try something different for your National Noodle Day experience, going to One Family Korean Restaurant and Karaoke has Jjam Bbong, a spicy noodle soup that is packed with a mix of different seafood! It’s hot, both in temperature and spice, so be sure to have a cup of water with you! Another classic Korean dish that is both delicious and unique is the Ja Jang Myeon, a noodle dish that has a savory black bean sauce with pork.

La Terrazza

La Terrazza Ristorante in Ybor is known to be a wonderful Italian restaurant and may be up your alley for National Noodle Day if you're looking for Italian noodles. The Linguini al Pesto has the classic sauce made from basil, olive oil, garlic, Parmesan, and pine nuts, and is stirred into their linguine! Topped with more Parmesan cheese, this dish is rich with flavor!

Noodle Kitchen & Market

Looking for something lighter? Noodle Kitchen & Market in SoHo has fresh noodle bowls made with your consideration! You can pick what you want for your noodles such as rice, brown rice, potato, mung bean, and spinach-celery noodles! Add vegetables, your pick of protein or broth to complete your healthy noodle meal this National Noodle Day!
