Okole Maluna, Windsor, CO

There’s a little bit of island magic in the Pacific Rim cuisine served here. The owners, Hawaiians by birth but now Coloradans, bring the culture and diversity of the islands to their food and none is more distinct then the  Hawaiian pesto udon, a combo of Japanese noodles and homemade macadamia nut pesto with either chicken or tofu. Your taste buds will scream Aloha!

Sachi Sushi, Niwot, CO

Sunday is the day, the only day, for ramen at this tiny restaurant, tucked in the corner of a local boutique market. The ramen is authentic, hearty wheat noodles bathed in a sumptuous broth. Choices include soy, spicy miso, salt, Zha Jiang and Japanese cold ramen. A variety of udon dishes are also on the menu, every day.

Sushi Ato, Colorado Springs, CO

Yes, there’s a 35-foot long sushi bar. That’s standard at a Japanese restaurant, as are noodle bowls with savory broth just right for slurping. The ramen selection is varied—miso, shoyu, spicy chicken miso. Each has a base of homemade broth that’s topped with fresh vegetables. Tempura udon in a dashi broth and Yakisoba, pan-fried noodles served in a sweet-sauce round out the noodle fare.

Buddha Thai Cuisine, Boulder, CO

Whoever the genius is behind drunken noodles, on the menu here, is brilliant … not just with the name but with the flavors. What’s not to like about pan-fried rice noodles complemented by eggs, a variety of vegetables and herbs and doused with chili sauce? Nothing. Plenty of other noodle options include Pad Thai, Buddha Noodles and Buddha Chow Mein.

Thai Cortez & Sushi, Cortez, CO

Fresh and well-seasoned food. Attentive and fast service. Lovely ambiance. This restaurant is truly a foodie oasis. Noodle fare ranges from Pad Thai to Pho’ to wonton noodle soup to duck or roasted pork noodle soup, plus a variety of stirfried noodle dishes. All are first-rate Thai comfort food.

Rice Monkeys, Durango, CO

Don’t let the name fool you, there’s more to this small, laid-back eatery than white steamed rice. You’ll find a selection of soup bowls filled with rice noodles and fresh herbs and spicy vegetables. You’ll also find a number of unique vermicelli bowls that combine cooled rice noodles with an interesting collection of vegetables, herbs, meats and fish and a tangy sauce. It’s a fresh interpretation of Asian cuisine that’s healthy and creative.

Expect the unexpected at this traditional Thai restaurant in the rugged region of southwest Colorado. Go figure! But, go eat here.

A blend of Korean and Japanese cuisine is the focus at this stylish and charming restaurant. The warm, relaxing ambiance harmonizes with the exceptionally authentic food.
