My apologies for the long long absence! Once again, school was frying up my life as I scrambled to get everything under control and find some time to sleep as well. It also didn’t help that my computer was broken for about a week over New Year’s (when I actually had time to post…) But everything’s slowed down (just a teeny bit) and fixed so I can post about my experiment today!

There is a small chain of restaurants here on my campus called “No Thai!” I normally go there when I’m craving some nice “Asian” noodles. Asian in the sense that it’s Asian American, kind of like how “chow mein” is Asian (aka, not really Asian).

About two weeks ago, I went to No Thai and ordered Pad Thai since I had gotten the “Drunken Noodles” last time. I wasn’t particularly impressed, but then again, what could I expect from a chain semi-fast food store?

So, today, I thought I’d give my own (inauthentic, probably) version of Pad Thai a try. I was craving for something that reminded me that sunny snow-less places still exist somewhere out there.

I used this recipe from Thai Table and modified it for myself.

I spent my Xmas day in Chicago, and wow, it was a little creepy since the downtown area so almost entirely empty.

Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get a taste of Chicago’s famous deep-dish pizza, but my friend and I went to a fairly famous restaurant called Joy Yee’s in Chinatown.

I’m currently in Chicago!! And, true to my foodie heart, I got excited with the food places that are available in the Windy City (which isn’t actually that windy…). I will be here until the morning of the 26th, and today was day 1!

Today, we visited Mitsuwa’s, a fairly large Japanese supermarket. It’s big enough to have its own food court and it actually reminded me of when I was in the Kyoto needle (across from Kyoto station) when we went downstairs and there were various types of vendors. At Mitsuwa’s there was a pottery place, a book place (perfect for getting my hands on those magazines that are otherwise sooo expensive!), and a sake place (but I’m underage…)

Santouka, apparently, is a very popular ramen shop within Mitsuwa. A friend from my club recommended it, and, wow, was I happy to be there!

Well, it’s a new school year and I’ve been trying to adjust to the new stove and trying to readjust to the equipment (or lack of) here.

This morning I was struck with a sudden craving for my mom’s semi-famous Burmese Noodle Salad. It’s pretty popular with my cousins, especially on my mom’s side where her generation immigrated for Burma/Myanmar.

It really brings back memories of home (now that I’m stuck back in Michigan) but it’s quite a bit of work (that I sort of skipped out on here…).

Well, the name is something I made up just now because it’s mostly sea products.

To be honest, I pride myself in my quick and easy soup noodles because…well, they’re quick and easy. The easy also applies to cleaning up after. I normally make these several times a week while changing up the ingredients, and they’re pretty healthy because of the vegetables and protein.
