In keeping with the Oriental theme  🙂

A couple of blogs I have been following –
Ramen Adventures – A teacher in the JET progam blogs about his travels around Japan trying and rating ramen shops.
  
also have been poking into The Ramen blog – Love the story behind the Gomen shop’s name that he posted with his review of the place. He also is American rather than Japan based and reviews the California ramen scene.
Also I am really digging Pikko’s Adventures in BentoMaking which I mention in the post below. She makes the seemingly simple bento box lunch look scrumptious. Desceptively simple, and so appetizing.
