Happy FriYAY, Noshers! I don’t know about you, but this has felt like the longest week ever. I flew to NYC for about 36 hours last weekend (our original flight was canceled so the trip was even shorter than expected!) for some fun plans/Mother’s Day festivities, and I’m definitely paying for it in exhaustion this week! But have no fear, Friday’s here – which means it’s almost the weeeekend! I thought I’d kick off this much-needed two days off with my delicious dining experience at Columbus Park Ramen Shop. Cue mouth watering now… Continue Reading
One of the things I miss about NYC (specifically, downtown NYC) is good cheap pho. I’m talking about the authentic, non-frills stuff.

The kits are MSG-free and available at all NYC Whole Foods Market locations, the Portchester, NY, store, and select New Jersey locations. Continue Reading
New week, new food, Noshers! Today I’m excited to share my eating experience at YUJI Ramen – Test Kitchen with you. The fifth and newest featured vendor at Smorgasburg at Whole Foods‘ Bowery location, YUJI Ramen continues the Japanese trend first started with Rice & Miso Everyday, last month’s vendor! As a huge fan of carbs, especially ramen, I was particularly looking forward to checking this vendor out:
Happy almost-Friday, Noshers! Today I’d like to share Yummy Noodle with you. Yummy Noodle is a no-frills, casual joint hidden in a Chinatown alley. The service is brusque, the menus housed under glass on the tabletops. So why am I writing about this place? Three words – cheap, cheap, cheap. And good (ok, make that 4 words).
After the perusing the menu (under glass, of course), eating buddy and I started with…
