TUSTIN’S NEWLY OPENED ROBA NOODLE SURPASSES 25,000 SKEWERS SOLD
Fine-Casual Noodle Eatery in The District’s Union Market Expands Menu with Rice Bowls
Roba Noodle, an Asian-fusion restaurant specializing in fine quality noodles and skewers at fast-casual prices, announced it has sold more than 25,000 skewers since opening at The District’s Union Market in March. To cater to The District’s eclectic crowd of diners and shoppers as well as deliver on the many to-go orders for nearby offices, rice bowls have been added to the menu along with a new clam noodle bowl and side dishes.
In Japanese cuisine, robatayaki (literally “fireside-cooking”), often shortened to robata, refers to a method of cooking like barbecue in which food is cooked at varying speeds over hot charcoal. Robata skewers are typically served as a side dish to complement a meal, but at Roba Noodle, skewers are the star! Offering a variety of proteins including pork belly, salmon, rib eye and wild-caught Chilean sea bass, the Robata skewers feature a healthy portion of perfectly cooked seafood, meats and vegetables to be enjoyed with the guests’ choice of noodle.
All meats and seafoods are never frozen and are slow-cooked to order over a charcoal grill to lock in a unique smoky flavor. This adherence to quality shines in Roba Noodle’s newest offerings:
· New Noodles – Clam joins the menu as the second soup-based noodle in addition to Beef Kombu, while other tasty choices are based in a thicker miso or uni sauce.
· New Rice Bowls – The Roba Meat Skewer Rice Bowl, Seafood Skewer Rice Bowl, and Vegetable Skewer Rice Bowl are perfect for lunch and to-go orders.
· New Sides – Organic Mixed Greens refresh your palette while Chicken Karaage is an Asian-inspired take on chicken strips: lightly battered and fried to crispy perfection.
The first fine-casual restaurant in the Union Market at The District in Tustin, Roba Noodle’s Asian fusion menu is now also available on third-party delivery services DoorDash, Uber Eats and Postmates. To view Roba Noodle’s full menu, please visit their website here.
