Thunder and Noodles, Lightning and Guiness

When the weather gets like this, with the thunder and the rain and the great gray chill, my dog frets and hides in the bathroom. I, meanwhile, crave one or both of these two things:

1. British-pub food, like English chips with malt vinegar or shepherd’s pie, served up with a nice Black Velvet. (That’s Guiness and cider — ideally Strongbow — though some people say different.) I love the way people gather under hardwood rafters next to the fire when it’s cold outside.

2. Quaint noodle-joint food, like pan-fried wheat noodles or udon in black bean and garlic sauce, served next to oolong tea. I love the way people gather together behind foggy glass and neon when it’s cold outside.

It’s raining now. It’s chilly and thundering. Where do you want to eat?

    I like Noodle in Decatur. Great food, ambience, and best of all, it’s good food without pretentious folks that just make eating in certain restaurants rather annoying. yick.

    I’m a fan of the Grant Park Pizza in EAV myself. When it gets cold enough, the windows get all fogged up. The warmth from the pizza oven is also very refreshing. Feels more “natural” to me than the sinus-frying heated air in most places. I also like the pizza, which probably helps.

    If you like fish and chips you have to try P’Cheen. It’s a new rest. on Highland, next to Zuma and it’s fantastic.
