This isnt going to be long-winded, wild, or too detailed.
When I keep thinking about the perfect noodle bar in my head, ... I see a vision.
When I got here with my dear pal who once told me about it - the vision came true!
A CUTE space, wonderful staff... SIMPLE, small menu - filled with perfection. Our apps (dumplings) could've been quadruple the amount and we would have still devoured ALL of it.
The noodle bowls were crafted before our eyes, with such expertise and fun... When they came to us I just wanted to jam my face in the entire bowl. HA!!! It was the idea I'd had along of the perect Miso Ramen Bowl. Just, ... incredible. I keep telling my deal pal how BADLY I want us to go back,
so I hope that's soon!!! We also had some lovely alcohol specials... a nice Red, an interesting, zippy beer... Wow. Between the company of my friend, the perfection of the cuisine, and the yummy drinks... this has become one of my favorite outings in recent memory. And easy, too. Nothing pretentious, snotty or stuffy. I honestly cant wait for my next visit to Cheu!!!

With two others, we carried out from Cheu's short menu, and enjoyed everything we ordered. My understanding is that the two owners create combinations that appeal to them, and I'd say their culinary imaginations are good. The menu varies, so it's probably best simply to report that we had wings, a soup, dumplings, several noodle dishes -- and all were worth having again. (We didn't try the brisket noodles with matzo ball and kimchi but probably would next time, just because it's such an outrageous dish!)
