    Just a few blocks off the Trolley Trail on Route 1, there is a tiny place that serves nothing that you would find in any other Chinese Restaurant or take out place in the Metropolitan DC area. Seriously, if you haven't been go! (Or let us know - Drevil and I can meet you there. .)

    I usually get the "Liang Pi" noodles - it's a cold noodle salad with carrots, cucumber, cilantro, peanuts, wheat gluten, and garlic - lots of garlic in a vinegar-based dressing. (So good they often run out.) They are known for their knife-cut noodles and "burgers" -- but tonight, for a PP, I got the Northwest Chinese Noodle Soup, with knife-cut noodles, veggies, wood ear mushrooms, and lily blossoms in a sour-spicy broth. And they were yummy.

    YEah I'm almost never in College Park but I will have to make that place a destination now.

    I recently had one of the worst bowls of Ramen I've ever encountered at the Jinya in Mosaic District, it actually made me angry it was so bad and expensive. Would love to have a great bowl of something new to make up for that soon!

    LSG - If you come up this far - be sure to visit MD Meadworks in Hyattsville, too! It's just a bit off of the Northwest Branch Trail.

    Default More soupy pics

    So - I should be out riding, but figured that I'd update my soupy status before I head out.

    Places in College Park:
    Qu Japan - right off Route 1 - only one veg option that you can make spicy. Comes with tofu, mushrooms, corn, bean sprouts, and nori (also bamboo shoots - but not my favorite, so I left it out) with springy chewy noodles in a savory and hot broth.

    Saburo - also off Route 1 - Spicy Miso Ramen - this isn't worth writing about - broth was SUPER salty.

    Rockville: The Block, Mama Mei's - Udon Soup with mushrooms and fried tofu - very filling - but they also threw Bonito Flakes on top - so vegetarians beware. (They probably also add bonito flakes in the stock as well.) The Block in Rockville had tons of space. I will have to go back to get ice cream - they had tons of asian-inspired flavors like - Ube, Lychee, Matcha, and Pandan with Mochi.

    DC: Sichuan Pavillion - A huge bowl of Mapo Tofu Noodle Soup - mouth numbing slurpy soup that was splash all over my shirt good. I used to work near Farragut Square - so when HF suggested that we go here, I was all in!

    I didnt ride my bike there yet so I'll steal no valor but if you're ever in the area check out yunnan by potomac in Old Town https://www.yunnanbypotomac.com/
    I've had several different things there now and theyve all been great. They make these thick billowy noodles that are sooooo pleasant to bite into and theres a bunch of interesting sounding things on the menu.

    Default #2: Rice Paddies (pho)

    I had this pho at Rice Paddies in Silver Spring for lunch during drevil's D.C. L.a.G.R. ride a couple weeks back. The broth wasn't as flavorful as I would've liked, and I preferred the flaming beef seitan that I tried as well. Still, it was nice having a lot of options there, and the ride was certainly worth it.

    Default #3: Simply Banh Mi (pho)

    I've been here for banh mi before and they're very accommodating to vegans. It's tiny, but a friend was in the area and suggested going, so of course I said yes. It was pretty good and I liked the almond boba tea. TBH I'd still probably go for Sprig and Sprout.
