On Sunday January 13, 2013 we presented a new event, similar to our Tasting Plates events, this one was all about noodles.
Each of the restaurants that were invited by Richard Wolak to participate had served up a couple of different noodle dishes as Tasting Bowls or Plates for guests to enjoy. Guests then had a chance to visit many different types of restaurants throughout the event, meet some new food loving friends, meet the chefs, and learn about each of the participating restaurants.

The restaurants featured many unique and tasty noodle dishes to our guests throughout the event.
