Udon Noodle Soup
A simple Udon Noodle Soup is something I crave when I just want a bowl of thick, chewy noodles and a plain broth to sip on. When I was a uni student in Brisbane, my friends and I used to frequent a popular Japanese restaurant in the city for some cheap and cheerful lunches. They were some of my favourite times; we were so young and cash-strapped, but yet we ate like kings!

Ramen Noodle Soup
When I think of ramen, I think of the many cheap and cheerful meals my friends and I used to eat at the food courts in Brisbane during our years as university students or new graduates. Back then, even though money was tight, we somehow ate out a lot, and the Japanese and Korean stalls were high on our list of favourite places to eat.
I recall fondly the made-to-order ramen noodle soups, served in small disposable plastic bowls with the hard-to-use plastic cutlery. It was typically the cheapest item on the menu, but I always felt it was the most nourishing.

Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken
If I could only eat one dish throughout the summer, it would have to be my mother’s Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken with Vermicelli Noodle Salad.
Growing up in Queensland, Australia, where the weather is pretty much warm and sunny all year round, salads featured prominently on the dinner menu in our home. And noodle salads in particular were popular because, as a child, the only thing you could count on me eating was noodles.
