Q: Where did the name of the restaurant originate?
A: While traveling in Japan we learned that a popular English phrase was my boom which to the Japanese means the thing Im currently obsessed with. Since we went to Japan in search of great noodles, it struck us that boom noodle would perfectly capture our obsession.

Q: Do you consider your menu to be authentic Japanese food?
