I never thought I would be taking trips to the mall just for food, but the Asian Noodle Cafe, located in the Glendale Mall, is worth the trek. Try their Madarian Chicken Salad. It comes with a delicious dressing that compliments the taste of the mandrian oranges perfectly. Their curry bowls are great too. They also have a variety of soups. Not Chinese, not Japanese, not Thai--but a combination of all that is good about Asian food. Reasonable prices.
Pros: good food, reasonable prices, not too busy
Cons: small menu, mall parking
