#2559: Jackpot Teriyaki - Beef Ramen - Tulalip - Washington - The Ramen Rater - ramyun korea korean

On June 22nd, we met my sister up in Tulalip, Washington to check out the outlet mall. It’s kind of a misnomer; you think outlet mall, you think cheap prices, right? Well, these are outlet stores for stuff like Coach, Burberry, etc – so you can get overpriced things that are still overpriced but not as cool as if you got it currently for this season. Ugh. ...see full post

Last moth I was looking for a specific variety at a local Korean grocery called Boo Han Market in Edmonds, Washington. Much to my chagrin, they have changed their instant noodle section!

That’s where I found this interesting instant noodle snack. ...see full post
