Noodle Mania Vancouver 2014


On Sunday January 12, 2014 we presented our 2nd tasting tour of noodles held all over the city.

Each of the restaurants participating 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.
