[NYC - Union Square Park] Tsurutontan Udon

On my quest to try the Tan Tan Noodles in New York City, I added Tsurutontan Udon to my list. I went to the location near Union Square Park, but there's a newer location near Rockefeller Center, too.

OMG, the menu is huge. You could maybe go here every day and never repeat your meal. If you're not an udon fan, there are rice bowls, sushi, curries, and plenty of bar-style appetizers.

My dining companion got the Beef Udon. Even though it looks a little less than beautiful, she really enjoyed her choice. Looks can be deceiving. It's very simple in theory and presentation and it's one of the ultimate comfort foods on the ginormous menu.

I got the Cold Spicy Tan Tan Udon. It's a seasonal menu item, but if you're not there in the season it's on offer, there's also a Spicy Tan Tan Udon on the menu all year. I went for this because it was different than my usual Tan Tan Noodle since there were some fresh produce like eggplant, cucumbers and tomatoes on top and it was served cold. The flavor was quite fresh due to the fresh produce.

Holy cow! The portions are HUGE. It may look deceiving when you receive the bowl, but the bowls are ginormous. I ate enough to be full and still had a full serving to bring home. The flavor was pretty strong and was definitely on the savory side. I could tell that they used high quality ingredients. This particular flavor of Tan Tan was not my style tan tan. I know plenty of other people love it!

I would say that for me, personally, I am on the fence about revisiting. The food was fine, but I think maybe it's not exactly my cup of tea...maybe it was too trendy or maybe I didn't order well.

When I go next time, what should I order? There are just so many options that it's hard to choose and I get decision fatigue.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
