Only three blocks from my apartment is an outlet of a local noodle restaurant chain, Noodle World Jr.
I had it once before when I just moved in.
The portion was huge! There were decent sized shrimp, strips of pork, scallions tossed in rice noodles. Of course I added chili paste!
It was delicious and reminded me of my time in Singapore.
For the three people who read this blog…huzzah!
Rejoice for I have moved to Hollywood and there are many interesting and inexpensive restaurants around.
It’s close to kway teow, with plenty of bak kwah pork tossed with shrimp and scallions and mung bean sprouts. The shrimp was cooked perfectly. It was one of the best Asian dishes I’ve had in California.
It was very good.
I added all of that chili oil which wasn’t that fiery.
Now I know that los palillos means chopsticks (筷子).
I started off with a huge seaweed salad.
I recommend Noodle World.
It’s only two (!!!) blocks from my new apartment!
Not a restaurant, but shameless advertisement of a novel I’ve written.
I think it’s pretty good. The Kindle version is only $3.
It is a novel, but there are plenty of descriptions of Asian food. It’s less Eat, Pray, Love and more Bourne with bumbling people.
I had high hopes flying JAL that the food would be good.
Miso soup was served! Also served was a decent salad, vegetables (eggplant and bell peppers), udon noodles and watermelon slices.
The fried chicken was soggy, but palatable.
The wine was pretty good!
This was a good cake. The base was a brownie and it was moist. Moistness is one of the most important requirements of a baked good called a brownie.
The chocolate icing on top was also good. I kept a stiff upper lip even after giving a speech.
