NOTE: Good Night Noodle/Good Morning Cafe now closed.
Good Morning Cafe has embarked on a new and exciting culinary adventure called Good Night Noodle. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights Good Night Noodle will be serving up Southeast Asian specialties – pho, spring rolls and pad thai.
Last Thursday Mark and I went to check it out. We had high expectations because of the wonderful meals we’ve had at Good Morning Cafe which you can read about here. I am pleased to report that we were not disappointed. We are newbies when it comes to this style of food. While we can’t speak to its “authenticity” (and we wouldn’t care anyway), we both agreed that this food is GOOD.
When we arrived at Good Night Noodle we were pleased to see that the restaurant was full. That is always a good sign. We decided to order shrimp spring rolls, the banh mi sampler and we each had a bowl of beef pho.
Pho, pronounced ‘fuh’, is a richly flavored broth served with rice noodles and meat. (FYI Good Night Noodle does make a vegetarian version with tofu in a rich vegetable broth.) Good Night Noodle’s beef pho has savory, grass-fed beef meatballs in it. It comes with a side of bean sprouts, cilantro and thai basil or other seasonal organic vegetable from Good Night Noodle’s kitchen. We had jalapeno and lime on our fixins plate in addition to the herbs and sprouts.
Here’s how I customized my bowl of pho.
Mark and I each had a medium bowl and we couldn’t finish it. We brought home what we couldn’t finish and Justin ate it. Suffice it to say, the portions are generous. An extra bonus is that a portion of each meal goes directly to a Cambodian village. You can learn more about Good Night Noodle’s Eat Good, Do Good, Feel Good philosophy here.
Or you can hear what owner Nancy Holzman and partner Linh Sullins have to say about it themselves in this clip-
So if you want to eat good, do good and feel good please give Good Night Noodle in Ballston Spa a try.
