If you’re a chronic bruncher who’s constantly on the lookout for something new or different, Prohibition in N.D.G. might have come up in your searches.

“Mmm…tastes like China,” said the guy sitting at the table next to mine in between slurps, his face practically buried in his bowl of noodle soup.

Anyone who cares anything about noodles needs to know about Nudo, a new venture by the noodle master who started Yuki Ramen in the Faubourg.

Dragon Beard Candy

The Chins make dragon beard candy daily with their bare hands, and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to witness one of the most incredible things you will ever set eyes on. And no, it doesn’t involve actual dragons they keep in storage or the cutting off of their beards…
