Boston Ramen Tour

Lately, all the rave has been about ramen noodles, which appeared on the list of 2013 Food Trends that are spreading across the US. In fact, it’s a major hit in Boston now, as mentioned in Boston Magazine. Like most people, my experience with ramen has been limited to pre-packaged and styrofoam cup versions – a staple back when I lived in the college dorms. Last year, I was introduced to a real bowl of ramen noodles served in a restaurant. Since then, I have tried almost all of the noodle bars in the Boston area and still hungry for more.

My first encounter …

Another week in the world of Boston Bake! Boston Bakes continues to soar!

Move over 160 we now have over 190 restaurants, bakeries and cafes and chocolate shops participating in this year’s Boston Bakes.  Hopefully we are not done adding more participants because I would be disappointed if that was the case! We have records to break!

Don’t feel like going to Somerville to visit Sagra, go to Dedham instead!

Want a reasonably priced Italian restaurant with good food; check out Sagra, a Boston Bakes participant for the past several years! I never had a chance to go to their restaurant in Somerville but had a chance recently to visit their new Dedham location the first weekend of the New Year!

Meet Jason Santos, Hell’s Kitchen Season Seven Runner-Up who’s Star is Shining!

Meet Jason Santos, Hell’s Kitchen Season Seven Runner-Up who’s Star is Shining!
I had seen the commercials on Fox for Gordon Ramsey’s Hell Kitchen but hearing Gordon’s screaming did not appeal to me. I never watched the show until the summer of 2010, season 7 to be exact when 2 contestants from Boston were on the show. You have to root for the home team! I got drawn into the drama of Hell’s Kitchen! Each week that the Ben Knack and Jason Santos made it through to another week, I could not wait until the show was on again!
