So my daughter Mimi and I were at the local 99 Ranch Market and she saw this one and asked if I’d tried it.

#4006: Delling Korean Style Yukgaejang Ramen - South Korea

Yesterday we found ourselves in Bellevue and about to go home, Kit asked me if there was anywhere we should go over there before we left.

Let’s give it a try! ...see full post

#3997: Fashion Food Tom Yum Shrimp Creamy Flavour Instant Noodles - Thailand

Yet another one from an Exotic Noods subscription box – use coupon code THERAMENRATER for a discount! These are neat but a pain at the same time. The plastic bowls with lids can be reusable which is cool, however the labeling is impossible to scan, so that poses issues for me – but thankfully not for you. Let’s check it out! ...see full post
