Well folks, here it is. This is what I’ve been working on for over a year now. As you will see from a lot of the text on the package, it’s still has a couple of loose ends to tie up – a couple typos and the cooking instructions are a little off. It’s my fault really; I wish I spoke Chinese… Really should learn someday. But it’ll get there. ...see full post

The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Rice Noodles Of All Time 2017 Edition

Now for the third year, I’m coming out with the latest Top Ten Instant Rice Noodles list. Rice noodles have some benefits as opposed to their fried wheat counterparts.

Well, let’s have a look at these great rice noodle varieties – the best instant rice noodles varieties of the almost 2,500 reviews to date! ...see full post

I tried lots of seafood of which I really liked the sunfish. ...see full post
