You might ask, why do I bother to make saimin in my apartment when I can go down to the dining room and have it for free. First, all the noodles served here are not at the correct al dente firmness. This is also so for just about anywhere you go in town. In Tuscany, al dente means a tad crisp in the center. That's too toothy for me. In addition, where can you get chu-toro (fatty blue fin tuna) with your saimin, and my view. Adding some sake to the broth could have been another difference maker.
Before my continuation of Typhoon Noru's path, I just must convince you to link on Celine Tam from America's Got Talent. She is all of nine years old and this week got the Golden Buzzer. There is a maturity about her that is wonderful and fascinating. Okay, if you are reading this and failed to click, I implore you to go back.
