Our first night in Santa Fe we ate at Mu Du Noodles. It was recommended in our Lonely Planet Guidebook. The restaurant doesn’t look like much from the outside and the neighborhood doesn’t look like it has great restaurants either (we passed a piercing place and a tattoo parlor on the block before it). Inside it is decorated in an import store way – very nice and intimate. They were busy the night we ate there and now that we’ve had their food we know why!
We started off with the samosas. The plate came with 4 small pieces, very light, and crispy. They were much less doughy than a regular samosa. There was a strong taste of onions and they were mildly spicy, but overall not exciting.
Things really picked up however when the main courses arrived. Wendy had the vegetarian Lime Pesto Noodles. The tofu was firm, and lightly fried. The vegetables were crisp. Yum! Ian had the Yaki Udon Noodles. They were spicy, but not overwhelmingly so, the chicken was tender, and the vegetables were perfectly prepared.
The restaurant itself was small and intimate, but very loud (perfect for our baby who loves loud environments!).
