It’s chilly outside, so you want to snuggle at home. Or maybe you just need something soothing to help you recover from your post-holiday party headache. Either way, have some noodles, which are so hot right now (see what we did there?). Here are the five best, from ramen to hand-cut pasta. There’s something on our list for everyone. Everyone who's hungry, that is.

Noodles Lees 597x430

Spicy Seafood Soup Noodles at Lee’s Noodles

The unassuming storefront turns out a version of a Korean dish called jjam ppong. It's basically a huge bowl of spicy bouillabaisse with juicy mussels, shrimp, octopus and onions mixed into handmade fettuccine noodles ($9). Then order a deep-fried Twinkie for dessert ($4).

Noodles Pho 597x430

Washugyu Beef Pho at Phorage

Getting over a hangover? Feel a cold coming on? Drive the discomfort away with a healthy bowl of Vietnamese noodles dotted with Washugyu beef, including steak and beef brisket ($10). Be sure to add in a lot of freshly torn basil.

Noodles Bucatini 597x430

Bucatini at Otium

Chef Tim Hollingsworth’s bucatini with clams and pork belly is the reward for snagging a reservation at this fine dining outpost of downtown’s splashy Broad Museum.

Noodles Ramen 479x629

Shio noodles at Shake Ramen

The classic thrifty college meal gets an upgrade: a refinement of traditional ramen noodles ($6) in which the salty broth is discarded, leaving only seasoned noodles and whatever protein and veggies you want layered on top. It’s all sealed in an airtight plastic container that you shake to mix when you’re ready to eat.
