Family dinners are so important to us.

Whenever we are not traveling, we plan as many family dinners as possible… especially with our extended family. There is just something so special about having your family gather around some delicious food, spending some time together. 

Since my parents don’t travel as often as we do, they love to hear about our adventures and we have found new ways to bring the travel adventures to them… with the new Noodles World Tour Menu at Noodles & Company!

Earlier this week my parents met us at Noodles & Company for a mid week dinner!

We all enjoyed a wonderful meal together starting with Emmy ordering her favorite kids meal.

My parents consider Noodles & Company their go-to restaurant because it is really delicious, REAL food, since Noodles & Company uses real ingredients. They don’t use artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, or preservatives. The new Spicy Korean Beef Noodles even uses naturally-raised steak.


We love that they have vegan and vegetarian options and that the dishes can be made with tofu. Because they offer REAL cooking at Noodles & Company, the dishes are made fresh to order every time. That includes customization, fresh ingredients, etc. They also have REAL flavors and they use globally-inspired recipes and fresh ingredients to give guests real, crave-able flavors, like the dish above that both Pete and Ashley ordered! 


Noodles World Tour Menu Offerings are pretty fantastic like this salad above which is the Napa Market Salad with Chicken. They also have the Chicken Veracruz Salad, Med Salad with Chicken, and Spicy Korean Beef Noodles. My parents thoroughly enjoyed it and we talked about how the flavors reminded us of being far from home, exploring a new place.

Our food came out so quickly that our dinner talk abruptly went silent as we all were enjoying the food. You know that everyone loves what they ordered when the table goes quiet.

And the appetizers… they were really good too!

I took big bites of pasta in between snapping these pictures. Everyone was up for a quick photo, but quickly went back to eating.

The best part of family dinners is being together, but the food is definitely what brings us around the table together. With so many long term favorite choices and the new Noodles & Company, Noodles World Tour Menu Offerings eating here is like going on a mini vacation.

  • I just got a flyer for Noodles and just looked into it and JUST saw this article. Going today for a late lunch and a much needed getaway moment from the little ones. Looking into trying all the Asian dishes! They all look so delicious!

  • I’d never heard of Noodles & Company until they opened a new location near us. To help train their staff before their official opening, they did a fundraiser for our school and gave 100% of the proceeds to the school. Since then, they’ve donated to our school auction every year. We love Noodles & Company for their food and their community participation!
