Scranning Pork Ramen at Wagamama's



Now I do have quite the fondness for Japanese food, well to the extent I can since I don't really like fish all that much. My usual dish would be Chicken Katsu Curry, something I honestly can't get enough of. However  today when I went to Wagamaga's I chose to switch it up a bit and go with Pork Ramen instead. Was a wise decision indeed as it was damn tasty. Not much food can defeat me, especially on an empty stomach but I did struggle to finish the soup, definitely value for money at only about £8.90. Also the green tea was free, though I wouldn't recommend it really as it sort of has a similar feel to the soup and to be honest it'd have been better to have had water to wash it down with. But still, can't complain.
Obviously the pork was the most impressive part, it was so tender it was dropping to pieces as I ate it. Noodles were great and the veggie bits provided some great flavours. As much as I love chicken, secretly pork is probably my favourite meat.

Honestly my biggest complaint with Wagamaga's is the music they usually have on, it seems like something you'd hear in a super market or some fast-food joint, really mainstream shit. Would have expected a little more Japanese moon music or something. Though back to the food, having the choice between chopsticks, fork and ladle is awesome, I found myself switching between them depending on part of the meal I was eating. Chopsticks for the noodles, veggies and pork. Ladle for the soup and fork for the keeping the homeless away whilst I ate.

I'm heading to London on the weekend and will be eating at the most authentic Japanese restaurant outside of Tokyo! Tokyo Diner in SOHO. Just not sure if I should have the Chicken Katsu Curry, that I had last time I was there or if I should give something else a go. Will have to wait and see. Definitely getting some Sake though.

Imagine Being Able to Play 3DS/DS Games on a WiiU!



How about this for an idea. Saw it posted somewhere on Google+ the other day. What about a little device, similar to an SD card reader that plugs into the back of a WiiU but instead of having an SD card slot it instead has a slot for 3DS and DS games. Then using your TV and the WiiU's tablet you could play the duel screen handheld's games but in your living room. Since we got this with the Nintendo 64 and with the Game Cube, playing Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance games, I don't doubt this could be a possibility in the near future. I know the WiiU isn't doing as well as the press apparently require it to so this little addition might be quite the game changer. For people that might not like handhelds or just want to sit back with with X and Y and play on their big TV, then this would be the perfect purchase.

Lets hope something like this gets announced at E3 or in a Nini direct sometime soon.

Three times a charm!

Dogepuffs, they taste like overused may may.

I think this is the third time i've tried to run this blog. As many say three times the charm. I guess this time i'm coming at it with a more serious attitude, i've even had a years experience writing for my other blog now so surely I can get this one going. I think my major downfall last time was creating a blog but not really knowing what to write about, or being motivated todo so for that matter.

So, as per usual with a new start, things are going to be pretty messy around here for a little while until I really get the feel for it. I'm not even going to "officially" release this blog until I feel it's a little better in terms of what it's meant to be, what content is meant to go on it and of course the design.

From the top of my head I intend this blog to be about pretty much anything I can't write about on my other blog. So that pretty much means all types of interesting things relating to geek and internet culture. I'll probably talk a lot about gadgets, current events, video games and other fun things like that.

So, here's here to a new start! Let's hope I stick to it!
