jja jang myunMy favorite Korean food as a kid was Jja Jang Myun. I could eat bowls and bowls of these delicious black bean noodles and when there were no more noodles, I’d mix the leftover sauce into a bowl of freshly steamed white rice and make Jja Jang Bop. Just needed to take out the tupperware holding grandma’s kimchi from the fridge and I’d enjoy a most satisfying meal. 😉 (more…)

pho van

pho 1

It’s been a while since my last post, so I thought I’d pop back on for a quick post about another one of my favorite noodle soups. Pho. Ahhh with the cold weather we’ve been having lately, I would slurp up a bowl of pho everyday if I could. My favorite spot for this deliciously warming dish is Pho Van in Catonsville, MD by the Office Depot on Rt.40. I find their rice noodles are the perfect texture, cooked just to a chewy bite. I hate when I order pho at some places and the noodles are overcooked and too soft. The pho broth is aromatic and served piping hot! Just how I like it. Pho Van has really good lemongrass meats as well – the lemongrass pork is a favorite. (more…)

This blog should be called Lisbeth Eats…Noodle Soups or Lisbeth Eats…Asian food. I eat out at Asian restaurants A LOT! I think it’s because I don’t know how to make many Asian dishes at home. And I especially love noodle soups – Pho, Bun Bo Hue, Ramen, Udon, Naeng Myun, Jjam Ppong, Kalgooksoo and Hong Kong style egg noodle soups to name a few – just a few. 😉 (more…)

Guess where we’re going for lunch today? You got it, Hangari Noodle Company in Hanoori Town in Catonsville, MD. Oops, I suppose the title of this post gave it away. It’s been about a month now since they opened and I’ve been waiting for a cold autumn day to write about them. It’s my ploy to entice you all to head over there and check it out. 😉 There’s just something so comforting about eating a hot bowl of noodle soup on an overcast day like today. (more…)

bun bo hue… vietnamese noodle soup

bun bo hue dinner

When you think of Vietnamese cuisine what comes to mind? Pho? Bahn Mi? For me, the first thing I think of is Bun Bo Hue. Have you ever tried it? It’s a rice vermicelli noodle (Bun) soup with a lemongrass beef (Bo) broth. It’s spicy, sweet, salty and sour all at the same time. So good!

I first tried this dish with my sis-in-law’s sister at An Loi in Columbia, MD. She has a particular way of eating this dish that has rubbed off on our entire family – Bun Bo Hue with a side of tomato rice and sliced onions. She would alternate spoonfuls of noodles with spoonfuls of tomato rice dunked in the broth a la Korean gook bop (gook bop literally means soup rice, you put rice inside the soup and eat it together). I’ve even got Kevin eating this way. The only time I don’t order the side of tomato rice is when I’m trying to watch my weight or diet, but really who am I kidding? If I’m trying to watch my weight or diet, what am I doing eating noodle soup in the first place?!?!? HAHA. 😉 (more…)
