If you’ve never had the “gingery” tofu vermicelli at Jenni’s Noodle House, then it’s unlikely life holds much meaning for ya.
This is a dish I regularly crave and regularly purchase from cute-as-hell Jenni and her equally cute hubby. There’s something about the combo of ginger, jalapeño, peanuts, fried tofu, greenage and noodles that’s more addictive than the damn Internet. You can order it either at their old location on Jefferson and Hutchins, or at their brand spanking new one (!) at the corner of West Alabama and Shepherd.
While you’re at it, say something outrageous and see if you can make it onto Jenni’s Web site’s “gossip page,” which features quotes from customers such as, “Are you sure your husband Scott is straight?” and “I’m NEVER going to Mai’s again!” – Cathy Matusow
