With an recent article on Metromix asking "Are noodles the new sushi?," my response is, huh?!?!
The article lists several noodle houses that have opened around town recently. I ate at noodle houses in college...and I'm beginning to think that isn't so recent(ha ha). Z'Mariks is a popular noodle house in Iowa City that many of the students frequent, so I was shocked to see that they are just up and coming in Chicago.
That leaves me with just one question: Is Iowa trendier than Chicago?
