The Great Pho Quest Continues: Pho Thaison in Allandale

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

It’s not often anymore that my wife and I are both out-and-about at lunchtime. Not like in the olden days. (Cue nostalgic music. Okay, that’s enough.) It happened yesterday, though, and we took full advantage of it. Our mutual timing was off, so I got in […]

Ramen Reprise: How to Make Healthy Instant Noodles at Home

A couple months back, the Chile Underground declared Asian Noodles Month; it was an instant hit. (Don’t groan! Okay, go ahead, you need it.) However, some visitors were a little concerned that some of the instant noodle varieties weren’t very healthy. While I think they’re better than certain fast food meals I could name […]

Spicy Italian: Godfather Sauce

Henry Hill, a character in Goodfellas who should have been in the Godfather series, once said, “… right after I got here, I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce, and I got egg noodles and ketchup.” That’s not one crime, that’s two.

Meaty Tuesday: Spicy Peasant Bolognese

Goodbye Instant Noodles, Hello Spicy Italian

It’s been a fine inaugural month for an event that I hope to repeat next year, bigger and better. If you have any ideas how to improve the […]

Getting Into Hot Water for Instant Noodles

There are three fundamental ways to heat water hot enough for instant noodles. (I’m setting aside using more sophisticated equipment, such as the Large Hadron Collider, which would most certainly heat your water. The lead underpants requirement’s a bit bothersome with that method.) Electric Kettle, Microwave Oven, and Ordinary Heat Source.

We here at the […]

Asian Noodles Month Continues

As our busy lives press forward, sometimes seemingly outrunning us in the process, we still need to eat. Thank goodness for instant noodles! A quick snack or a fast meal on the run, these simple, tasty concoctions can help you keep up (or catch up) with your lifestyle.

For instance, I’m working on four lectures […]
