Whether they be udon noodles, lo mein, ramen, or any other yummy variety, when you’re craving them, nothing else will do. Some of the best places to find noodles are right here in Nebraska, and here are 10 of our favorites. 

1. Sushi Japan Yakiniku Boy, Omaha, NE

Sushi Japan has been serving the Omaha area delicious Japanese fare for over 15 years, where the lunches are casual, the dinners intimate and where they even specialize in traditional Yakiniku, also known as Japanese barbeque. However, it’s the noodles that keep people coming back for more here. Traditional ramen is a particular favorite, as is the Nabeyaki Udon, which features floured noodles in a hot pot with chicken, shrimp tempura, egg, wakame, shiitake mushrooms and scallions.
