Admit it: chances are you didn’t even know it’s National Noodle Month. But here we are, with most of it already gone. Have you had your fill of the good stuff in all of its many forms? We didn’t think so. Here are 7 noodle-slinging spots where you can make the most of what's left of the national celebration.

    OG Phat Thai at CrushCraft Thai Street Eats

    When you need that classic Thai-food fix, the new Uptown fast-casual spot can take care of you. Their “phat” Thai can sate cravings for simply saucy noodles, sprouts, scallions and peanuts. Try ‘em with a sake bomb!

    2800 Routh St.; 972-677-7038

  • Tagliatelle alla Bolognese at Mi Piaci

    There’s nothing like diving into a piping-hot bowl of fresh pasta, and Mi Piaci’s flat sheets of al dente perfection get caressed by the scratch-made meat-and-tomato sauce. If this doesn’t beg for a glass of red wine, nothing does.

    8411 Preston Rd.; 214-774-9584

  • Drunken Noodles at Chino Chinatown

    Of course, the house of Asian-Latin fusion wouldn’t just leave you hanging with traditional drunken noodles. No, this entree is adorned with tender fajita steak, which makes it right up Chino’s alley. The bar staff is on a tear here, so make sure to order an imaginative concoction like the Mezerac.

  • Soba Noodles at Tei-An

    One of the few soba houses in town, the Japanese restaurant also draws diners to One Arts District with its fine service and attention to culinary craft. You can’t beat their plump, toothsome, handmade noodle.

    1722 Routh St.; 214-220-2828

  • Any Primi Plate at Lucia

    The menu changes frequently at this impeccably Italian Bishop Arts spot, but you can be sure that any of the pastas made from scratch in-house are a sure bet.

    408 West Eighth St.; 214-948-4998

  • Spicy Beef Noodle Soup at Monkey King

    Hand-pulled noodles are infused with a generous batch of love and care at this Deep Ellum noodle shop, and it comes through in its just-made freshness and sumptuously rich texture. We love piling a mound of it into our mouth and chasing it with a hearty gulp of peppery ramen broth.

    Vermicelli Bowl at Miss Chi Vietnamese

    The adorable Vietnamese home-cooking eatery specializes in perfecting classics, and our palate has deemed the big bowls of bun or rice noodles with lettuce, cukes, herbs, peanuts and your choice of protein pretty darn close to perfect. Add an egg roll for a small upcharge, douse those noodles in the accompanying dipping sauce and throw down.
