Taco Tuesday!

Hello lovely readers!

It’s Tuesday which only means one thing…TACOS! Being from Texas, and currently living in San Antonio, I have a certain love for tacos (and Mexican food in general) that sometimes gets the best of me and my belly.

Steaming bowls of ramen is up there in my 10 ten things I love about cold weather and I recently tried the Tonkotsu ramen set compiled by WASHOKU Explorer. Tonkotsu is one of the most popular varieties of ramen. The creamy, rich, pork broth is made by boiling pork fat, collagen and well washed pork bones for hours (even days). Due to the labour intensive process, this dish is not often made at home, though you will find it at any ramen shop.
