I came across a number of great food-related articles that I just had to share:
Asian Food Fest #10: Taiwan (Travelling Foods): Besides some GREAT food photography, the post really goes into the cultural history of Taiwan, and how different groups affected what we now consider Taiwanese cuisine.
Eating Soup Dumplings in Shanghai? Xiao Long Bao Are Only Half the Story (serious eats): You may be an avid fan of XLB, but did you know about the pan-seared version?!?
Inside Sun Noodle, the Secret Weapon of America's Best Ramen Shops (Eater): Noodle lovers (especially ramen fans) must check this one out. I had to have ramen for dinner after reading this.
