Saturday/ the Gourmet Noodle Bowl

Is it OK to put gourmet* together with ‘noodle bowl’ and call your Asian restaurant the Gourmet Noodle Bowl? .. given that gourmet is (from Wikipedia) a cultural ideal associated with  haute cuisine, which is characterized by elaborate preparations and presentations of large meals of small, often quite rich courses?   No matter, they serve up great Chinese, Taiwanese and Indonese food there, and we ended the meal with ice cream servings of mango, green tea and durian flavors.  There is a picture of durian – the king of fruit – on my post of Tue Mar 27.

The Gourmet Noodle Bowl is at 707 8th Ave South in Seattle's International District. (The restaurant entrance is on the left of the picture).
The Happy Times Bistro is across the street. A bistro is a small restaurant (orginally from Paris, France) serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting.
Here is the durian ice cream .. a nice way to get acquainted with the taste of durian, since it's sweeter and you do not have to deal with the very unusual smelliness of the fruit !
