Chinatown Community Development Center and North Beach Merchants Association are putting on Noodle Fest 2010: Chinatown and North Beach, A Cultural and Culinary Celebration for you to come out and sample delicious noodle and pasta dishes from over thirty restaurants from Chinatown and North Beach! So come ready to mingle, enjoy live entertainment, watch noodle making demonstrations by renowned chefs, vote for your favorite restaurant from both neighborhoods, and enter in an exciting raffle contest!
When we read that advertisement – food and food and walking along the neighborhoods of Chinatown and North Beach – we immediately went online to buy tickets. They were selling tickets at $15 online and $20 at the event.
The poster that is plastered all over the place.
Whether you bought your tickets online or purchased them at the event, you have to line up to get your passport. For the ticket price, you will get to taste 3 dishes from Chinatown restaurants and 3 dishes from North Beach (or Little Italy).
We started our tasting at the Chinatown side. Chinatown’s color is red.
Then we walked a few blocks to sample the cheesy, tomato-y goodness of Italian noodles (pasta). North Beach’s color is blue.
Since this is a new festival – this being it’s first time – there weren’t as much people as any SF street festival I have attended. In between tasting, I took my sweet time shooting. However, ladies and gentlemen, I have made a serious boo-boo. I FORGOT to take photos of the food. And this was a food festival. Pardon me, the newbie in me and the hungry stomach are to blame for this major lapse.
MY WORLD is here. Join us.
