So many noodles, so little time.
Sooner or later, somebody had to do it. Edmonds resident Hans Lienesch has reviewed nearly 1,000 varieties of instant noodles from around the globe over on his blog, The Ramen Rater. If he's going to keep up, he has a lot of work ahead of him. According to Lienesch, "Most people think of Top Ramen when instant noodles are mentioned, but there is so much more to them than that. More than 400 new varieties of instant noodles are minted EVERY YEAR in Japan alone! China, Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and many more also make instant noodles."

To bring notoriety to Momofuku Ando, the mighty creator of the instant noodle, Lienesch has declared January 19th, "The Ramen Rater Momofuku Ando Day." Ando invented the first instant noodles in the late 50s.

In other news, during a week-long holiday break: La Bete built new shelving near its entrance and Kedai Makan painted in preparation for its mid-January launch. Also, (drum roll, please) Il Corvo opened its doors in Pioneer Square.
