Lunch Break

Hello folks,

Just writing a quick post for ya. I finally checked out the new Noodle & Noodle restaurant which was only two blocks from my office in Pasadena. Before going there, I read about the place on Yelp to see what it was all about.

Noodle & Noodle is owned by a Thai restaurant called Nine & Nine, which used to occupy Noodle’s current location before moving a few doors down. I walked past Noodle last week and found that they have ramen on their menu. Knowing that they are owned by a Thai restaurant, I knew I couldn’t expect authentic ramen but I had to try it! And I’ve eaten at Nine before and thought the food was pretty good.

There were few people in the restaurant when I arrived. I sat myself at the bar area, even though it just faced a wall. I was pretty fascinated by their collection of Tonka trucks!

Overdue Ramen Run

Hey guys, Tanya here.

Finally got to make a ramen run with Joan after a long time. I was excited. We decided to head out to Fountain Valley to a place called Ebisu. The shop is set in a plaza with a bunch of different shops. The place wasn’t too busy but the area was nice. Places to eat, shop, and a few hobby places.

Hello… Joan here.

It was definitely an overdue ramen run because Tanya and I had not gone together since August. That and…. my friend Kim Long had been inviting me to Ebisu Ramen since the summer of 2011. AND my brother, Angelo, had not been on a ramen run in years. Definitely overdue.

We arrived a little too early before Kim Long would get there, so we checked out what was around. Ebisu apparently took up most of the shopping complex. There used to be a huge Ebisu Marketplace that’s now closed, but they just opened up a small Ebisu Mart. We found some interesting stuff there!
