Best Bowl of Noodles: Yanako

Forget ramen. We restore body and soul with chef Nongyao “Moon” Krapugthong’s piping-hot bowls of al dente udon and soba noodles. Additions like fried tofu and bean-curd skin, mountain veggies, and nori -and-shrimp tempura are as authentic as a trip to Bangkok. 

4255 Main St., Manayunk, (267) 297-8151,

Our Best of the Main Line Elimination Ballot is open through February 22!
