    Butternut squash noodles with Gorgonzola sauce, walnuts and bacon

    Did you know you can make delicious squash noodles? These Butternut squash noodles have become one of my favorite meals ever! Today I´m gonna show you how to make this recipe, which it´s a healthier option (okay, maybe just a little bit healthier), and delicious! And of course, very easy to do. I have to say that I had some problems with the pumpkin, because at the beginning I tried to make this recipe in the frying pan, but the noodles got completely destroyed. So as a tip, it´s better to boil them (in the pan they will be delicious, but forget about the noodle-shape). I usually try to create…

    Ippudo Nishikikoji, really good ramen in Kyoto

    I was so lucky to visit Japan in February, a country that I fell in love with and will visit again. I wasn´t that lucky about the weather, unfortunately, as i went in the coldest week of the year, so my body was craving 24/7 for a good bowl of steaming ramen. I was in Japan, the land of ramen, so i gave to my body what it wanted. The morning after arriving in Kyoto, we were surprised by the snow, so we decided to make a stop at Ippudo Nishikikoji, one of the most famous ramen restaurants in Japan, a block from Kyoto’s Nishiki Market, (market that is located…

    Ramen Shifu

    It´s been two years already since I left Madrid and it surprises me how much the popularity of ramen has grown in this time. The locals can choose from dozens of restaurants where you can have an incredible meal for a very affordable price. On my last visit to Madrid, I decided to give a try to Ramen Shifu, which I had heard so much about and red very good reviews on the internet. I was eating at the restaurant located in Zurbano street (you can find another two restaurants in Ayala and Calle de Toledo), tiny but incredibly cozy, where ramen addicts can find a menu fully specialized in…

    Ramen – Ya Restaurant

    In the heart of Amsterdam you´ll find one of my favorite ramen restaurants, Ramen – Ya. It´s conveniently located near the Dam square and the red light district, so it´s a great place to go after a long walk discovering Amsterdam (especially in those days of cold and rain). They are specialized in Hakata style ramen, which is a local variety of Japanese ramen. The broth is really creamy, thick and rich (is based upon pork bones and boiled for several hours), and the noodles are straight, firm and thin . The restaurant is very is spacious and Service is friendly and fast, they do their best to make you…

    MAMA Pork flavor noodles with egg, grilled pork, sweet corn and baby spinach

    MAMA is an instant noodle brand part of Thai President Foods, the largest instant noodle manufacturer in Thailand. Pork noodles is one of the most popular flavors of this brand. I personally love these ones, they are very flavorful, but always prefer to add some extra ingredients to make them better! It will only take you 5 extra minutes to prepare a decent meal.     To prepare, simply pour two-ish cups of water into a soup pot. Place the dry noodles once the water is boiling for about 3 minutes. Pour out all the flavor packets into a bowl and add the noodles and water (careful with the spice…
