Ichiban Noodles- Indianapolis

As many times as we've passed Ichiban Noodles on the way to the Castleton post office or Home Depot, it took Tom B. nudging us to get us there for dinner. There was no better place to be on a cold night with flurries blowing. It was lovely inside with yellow walls, light wood tables and chairs, and very friendly service. We happily warmed our hands on the mug of hot green tea and decided to get the Shoyu Udon and San-sai Soba. The dinners come with salad but when we asked, the server said that they also had miso soup available so we chose one of each. The salad was the standard iceberg lettuce, tomato wedge, and delicious ginger dressing combo. The miso was very tasty with generous chunks of tofu. The San-sai Soba was a big bowl of buckwheat soba noodles with vegetables in a light stock. When we try to make soba noodles at home, they tend to come out gummy so it was nice to have them out where they are done right. The Shoyu Udon was outstanding. Udon noodles are thick, soft, wheat noodles and they were in a really delicious stock along with baby bok choy and some crispy pork strips.

We couldn't find a website for them so we took pictures of their carry-out menu that you can click to enlarge. Their menu states that they are closed on Sundays and their hours are on the exterior picture.
