Connecting With Family Over A Fun Dinner Experience!

Noodles and CO 1 New

Hey All!

I’m always super busy with this blog and often times the only time I have to catch up with friends and family is over dinner. It’s the one time of the day that we can all sit down and catch up with what has gone on during the week. We like to make that time extra special, so we like to go out to restaurants to connect and have a fun dinner experience. We recently went out to try Noodles & Company for one of these dinners and we had a blast. It’s so much fun to eat some amazing dishes as you laugh and catch up with your family.

The place is very modern, décor-wise (which I loved) and you get to choose from a variety of amazing world-themed dishes which come in two sizes. They have a variety of awesome sides and are featuring their World Tour dishes like the Napa Market Salad with Chicken, Chicken Veracruz Salad, Med Salad with Chicken and Spicy Korean Beef Noodles. All look super yummy!

You can eat in the restaurant or you can conveniently take your order to go (and save time by ordering online for pickup beforehand), so you can have a beautiful sit down dinner at your own dinner table. We chose to eat in the restaurant since we like to get out of the house. We chose to go to Noodles & Company because they provide guests with REAL food, REAL cooking, and REAL flavors. Noodles & Company uses real ingredients. They don’t use artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, or preservatives. The new Spicy Korean Beef Noodles contains their brand new naturally-raised steak, which is never given hormones or antibiotics throughout the course of its life. That’s a big deal for me because I don’t want to eat at a restaurant that is not using fresh and real ingredients.

At Noodles & Company, dishes are made to order every time, which you can also customize to your liking. You can also see their fresh ingredients on display. I love transparency in a restaurant. That’s another reason Noodles & Company is a great restaurant for parents to take their kids for a healthy meal. You only want to feed your family the very best, hence why we selected Noodles & Company for our fun dinner night out. We got one of each of the shareables including Cheesy Garlic Bread, Potstickers, and Korean BBQ Meatballs. We ate some as an appetizer and we actually got another order of the Cheesy Garlic Bread, so we can eat it along with our main dishes.

The potstickers were an interesting shape and tasted great. I’d never had potstickers cooked in a panini press before. They were a unique shape, but they tasted great.Who cares what shape they are if they taste great. Am I right?!!

We had two orders of this Cheesy Garlic Bread, which I loved since it came with a marinara dip. I love to dip my bread in sauces!

We also got an order of the Korean BBQ Meatballs, but they were snatched up and eaten before I got to snap a photo of them.

And Wisconsin Mac & Cheese. We actually got two of the mac & cheese bowls, so we could take some home afterwards. That’s how much we enjoyed it.

We loved trying all the global flavors of the dishes we got. We made sure to get a variety of different bowls that we could discuss and chat about what is our favorites as we ate.


Trying new foods is a great way to spark a conversation and connect with your family. This dishes worked perfectly to do that. My family is part Italian, so they were all about the pasta and cheesy garlic bread. It was very familiar cultural food made in a new way. We love trying new foods and flavors.


I was partial to the Pesto Cavatappi, since I love pesto with a passion. My hubby liked the Spicy Korean Beef Noodles and the kidlets loved the Wisconsin Mac & Cheese of course.
