Attracted by the picture printed in the menu, we decided to try the something new – Potato Croquette at West Udon.
Price: Affordable and your money’s worth. Must try their Potato Croquette.

Quality: The crispy crust and soft mashed potato is delicious. We cannot help but full of praise. Must try!

Store layout: The restaurant has a typical Japanese layout concept with wooden furniture and paper lamps. The store is strategically located along Union Street and Northern Blvd. You will not miss it.

"West Udon at the back. I do not know this person."

"see the family is enjoying a meal at the restaurant."

"waah.. look at the mashed potato with the crispy crust."

"a close-up picture of the potato croquette. it is so yummy. *salivating*"

Curry Katsu Chicken Don

Overall rating: 4/5

With our love for curry, we made sure that we tried any type of curry available. We decided to try the Curry Katsu Chicken Don at West Udon. Interestingly, they have an item – Half Curry Katsu Chicken Don and we decided to give it a try.
Price: Priced at $4.50. It is a reasonable and affordable price for children or adults with small stomachs.
Quality: The thick curry has a strong aroma that makes us salivating when it was placed on our dinner table. The Katsu Chicken was freshly fried with crispy crust and juicy chicken meat inside. You must try this – Curry Katsu Chicken Don!!

Oyaku Don

Overall rating: 2.5/5

We wanted to try something different from the last rice bowl we tried the last time at West Udon. We chose Half Oyaku Don from the menu. Oyaku Don is cooked with chicken thighs, eggs, soy sauce, mirin sauce, sugar and sake.
Price: Reasonably priced for one. Suitable for children, adults with small stomachs or for sampling.
Quality: The ingredients were freshly prepared but were a little too bland for my taste. You may want to try Oyaku Don.


"looks great on the outside, so-so in the inside"


Overall rating: 4/5

It has been some time since we last ate Japanese food. The last time we had was Oyaku Don. We wanted to try something different today and decided to try Nabeyaki.
Price: Affordable. Enough for one.
Quality: The udon had a very nice texture. The clear broth was mouth-watering. It was light and did not contain any MSG. I loved the Tempura Prawn too. 
In mathematical terms, Udon + Clear Soup Base + Tempura Prawn = Nabeyaki = Superb!!

"look at the delicious noodles, and tempura prawns... Omg... I cannot stand looking at it without salivating."

Another frozen yogurt chain store, Red Mango, opened along Roosevelt Ave at about one minute’s walk from its competitor – Pinkberry. A different concept from Pinkberry, Red Mango has more seats for customers to rest and enjoy the refreshing frozen yogurt

Our friend back home came to NYC for business and paid us a short visit over the weekend. As an excellent host, we brought him to one of our favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner. Being hospitable, we ordered so much food that the round table which was supposedly for six persons were full of food. We share the food we ordered for the welcome party. 
Manhattan is a home to many smells, but the most savoury scent that emanates from the city's numerous halal food carts. These carts serves a box full of lamb or chicken or both with rice that is worth raving for. Marinated with spices, chopped into chunks and then served over a serving of basmati rice and then topped with salad with hot (spicy) and white (sweet-sour) sauces that has to be mixed for true street-style authenticity.

Summer is here! Nothing beats anything else than having an ice cream or popsicle. However, in Flushing, there is an increasing popularity for frozen yogurt where two new joints along Roosevelt Ave were opened earlier this year.
