#3732: Acecook Mochichi Shio Yakisoba - Japan

Here’s a fancy one from Japan found in a Zenpop box – check out zenpop.jp and use the coupon code RAMENRATER for a discount! The last time I tried one of these mochichi varieties I remember it mentioned ‘pinching one’s cheek’ to tell if they’re not really in a fancy ramen restaurant in Tokyo. It was pretty good, but no pinching occured. Let’s give it a try. ...see full post

Let’s look within and give them a try! ...see full post

Okay so on New Year’s Eve back in 2017, I did a different brand’s version of chaat patta and ran into the same issue: no info. I am not sure what the heck it’s supposed to taste like, but this time I’m kind of leaning towards this tasting like the little break/dough flavts that have stuff on top of them in Indian/Pakistani cuisine. I could totally be wrong too. So, I suppose it’s time to try something and not know what it’s supposed to remotely taste like and enjoy or dislike. Here we go. ...see full post
