Easy Wonton Noodle Soup (the non-traditional way)

Crafting a traditional hearty bowl of wonton noodle soup at home can take some time, so this is my version of wonton noodle soup – the non-traditional way. Today, I will be sharing a quick and easy wonton noodle soup recipe by using frozen wontons and dry Chinese noodles that you can find in your local Asian grocery store.

Note: To make a larger portion, simply double the amount of ingredients.

Ingredients (1 serving):

1 dry Chinese wheat noodles
3-4 pieces of frozen wontons (You can add more if you like)

Soup Broth Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup of hot water for soup
1/2 tsp of chicken stock powder
1/2 tsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp of sesame
a pinch of salt
a pinch of pepper

Note: If you prefer not to use soup stock powder, you can also use any soup broth that you have. Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup broth of your choice
1 smashed garlic
1 slice of ginger
1/2 tsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp of sesame oil 

Optional Toppings:

Chopped green onion (scallions)
Baby bok choy
Gai Lan

In a small pot boil some water for your noodles. While the water is coming to a boil, prepare the toppings – chopped green onions, and gai lan. Once boiled, add in the noodles and cook it according to the instruction on the package. The noodles I’m using are wheat noodles (see image below on the right).

Ramen, Beef & Rice Bowl, + Matcha Ice Cream with Red Bean & Mochi

As the weather is cooling down, one of my favorite food to eat during the fall/winter is Japanese ramen. I prefer going out to eat ramen around this time of year because my usual go-to ramen restaurants are small, cramped, and usually crowded. During summer, these ramen shops gets pretty hot inside, so fall/winter is ideal for me. I’ve been eating at Hakata Shin-Sen-Gumi Ramen ever since I entered college, and every time my sister and I went in the evening, the staff recognized us right away – we used to go 2-3 times a month up until before we graduated. The last time I went to Shinsengumi was back in May of 2016 after attending The GazettE Concert.

On this day, I went during lunch, and ordered my favorite J Set meal which comes with a regular size ramen, and Beef & Rice Bowl. I also ordered a poach egg and spicy miso paste as an add-on to my ramen.

A Relaxing Day – Food & Shopping

On Sunday, my sister and a friend wanted to go shopping. It was one of those days where I wanted to stay home all day in my pajamas, but I realized I need to step out of the house a bit. I actually stayed home all-day on Saturday (in my PJs) as well haha. For lunch, we decided on sashimi/poke bowls at M.Y.O Sushi. I ordered a salmon sashimi bowl – comes with some shredded cabbages, kale, cucumbers, and avocado. There is also a side of miso soup, deep fried sweet potato, a small salad with light mayo, and edamame.

After, I stopped by for some almond milk tea – it was okay.

Burberry | The Chelsea – Short Heritage Trench Coat in Black

Trench coat shopping is one of my biggest nightmare. It’s either too long in length, the fit is awkward, or the length of the sleeves were always too long. I’m about 4’10”, and wearing coats that past my waist makes me look even shorter. Back in January I decided to give Burberry trench coat a try as well as to treat myself to a nice birthday gift.

When I went in, of course they questioned my age (not literally) by giving me weird stares and a hesitant “hello,” but I’m happy I didn’t get any rude sales associates. The SA that helped me was very nice, and she took my height into consideration and was very patient with me. I was interested in buying The Chelsea – Heritage Trench Coat in black since I love wearing white, grey, and black. I never knew they came in 4 sizes (shown below) – short, mid, long, x-long.
