Review: Korean Noodles Vs Chinese Wonton Noodles

Greetings my fellow readers,

In this post , I would like to share my experience eating Korean noodles and Chinese wonton noodles.

On Saturday September 3rd, I went out to eat at several different places. It was one of my friend’s last day and we went out to eat at a Chinese/Vietnamese restaurant. After that I went out with other friends to a Korean restaurant/bar. I also ended the day by eating a double bacon cheeseburger at Carl’s Junior but that’s another story…. :). Below you will find my review on the two noodles that I had from the two restaurants.

 

Korean Noodles

The Korean Noodles tasted like regular instant noodles except it was extra spicy. I went with my friends and we ordered a 30$ hot pot of korean noodles. Inside the pot were noodles, a bunch of random vegetables, bacon, tofu and maybe some meat. This was my second time eating the noodles at this place and I would like to give it a 2/5 stars. The taste was too bland for me. My friends seem to like it, but for me it seem to have the same taste and flavor as the instant ramen/noodles that I have stashed at home. For 30$ I could probably stash up 15-30 boxes of instant ramen and save it to eat once a week :). It’ll last me 30 weeks. The hotpot looks really nice with the fire turned on but don’t let that fool you!

I don’t know why my friends keep going back to eat at this place!!

 

Chinese Wonton Noodles

Before I had Korean food I was at a Chinese Restaurant for Wonton Noodles. The Chinese Wonton noodles only costed 7$. The price on the Wonton noodles seem to be a lot more affordable compared to the Korean noodles. In terms of taste and flavor, I would like to say that the Wontons were really good. The meat and the rice noodles were also delicious. It did not have the same taste as compared to the instant noodles that I have at home. The wonton soup broth is not as cloudy and red as compared to the Korean “instant maybe” noodles. I would give the Wonton noodles a 4/5 stars for having good taste. If I wanted to make new friends or invite people over for casual business dinner I would highly recommend going to get Wonton noodles here instead of Korean ramen.

 

Thank you for reading! I like to eat, and I also like to make new friends! Thank you for inviting me and also for going to Carl’s Junior with me!

 

Ong Bak 2 – Fighting Scene

What do you think of sword fighting and fist fighting? In real life it’s better to just avoid these problems by running away. You don’t know what kind of weapons the other party has and other surprise elements that he/she has waiting for you. But in the movies, it’s really different. The scenes are well choreographed to make all the moves look really interesting to watch. If you are a huge martial arts cinema fan then you might be curious to find out what this short youtube video is about!

Sunflower, Dragonfruit, Kiwano

DSC03687

In my yard I have grown some plants. What kind of plants you ask? Well I have sunflowers, Kiwano melon and dragonfruit! If you have an empty dirt space in your yard, I recommend you start planting things and put that empty space into good use instead of growing grass.

It’s really easy to grow sunflowers and kiwano. All you need is some seeds and some soil and water. Simply bury the seeds in a lot nearby and add some soft soil. Then water it everyday and you will start seeing  new life emerge! It takes trial and error to be good at planting things. So experiment around to see what works best for you :).

To grow dragonfruit all you need to do is ask a friend to give you some of their dragonfruit cutting. You can invite them over for coffee and ask them if they will give you some of their cuttings in exchange for the coffee. And if they say no, you’ll might have to steal (Don’t do this :P) it from them or purchase it from them. If they still don’t want to sell it to you, you can look at ebay or home depot to see if they have any. Once you get your cuttings, plant it directly in soft soil or into a pot and water it frequently. You should start seeing new branches form in 3 weeks or so. Dragonfruit is best grown upward and tied against a long 6ft pole or against a fence. If the cactus touches the ground too much it will rot. If you notice your dragon fruit cuttings starting to rot it is best to cut down on the water and tie the branches up to prevent touching the soil.
