Best of Thai Noodle

I don’t know of it’s authentic and I don’t know how to the noodles are but if you want something to come back for at Best of Thai Noodle, order their “roast duck over rice”. That is heaven on a plate. I keep thinking I should order something else but I know my friend is going to order the duck over rice and then I’m going to be jealous.

I have had their larb and their fishcake salad. They were both unsurprising (read good but not exceptional) Their chicken wings in their appetizer section were pretty tasty too.

Kahoo

My experience with ramen in the states continues to disappoint. Kahoo was no exception. The noodles sucked. Not even close to authentic ramen noodles.

On the other hand I ordered the tantanmen and on the one hand it was not what I consider tantanmen. Good tantanmen, at least the kind I like, should have the consistancy of mud. It should be seriously thick and opaque. On the other hand even though this tantanmen was soupy it was pretty tasty which made me want to drink the whole bowl.

Santa Ramen

It really makes me said how bad ramen is in America. 7 years in Japan taught me how good ramen can be. Now that I’m back in the states I get people telling me how good places like Santa Ramen are. I then go try them only to find they are about high school cafeteria quality in taste compared to the real thing in Tokyo. (yes, I know ramen is actaully Chinese food)

I ordered the Santa Ramen Tonkotsu Chashu Ramen. The meat was cold and flavorless. The soup was barely passible as Tonkotsu based and the noodles seemed more like spagetti than ramen noodles.
