Ramen Yamadaya, Sherman Oaks

Posted on

Eric and I went with a friend one night a few weeks ago to get ramen.  Ramen Yamadaya is a tiny place in Sheman Oaks that offers Vegan Ramen.  The broth is soy milk based and the noodles are spinach.

I had never before eaten proper ramen and didn’t know what to expect, but the broth was extremely flavorful and the  noodles were great.  I mixed in a little chili paste for added spiciness and some pieces of tofu that I ordered on the side.  In the bowl you get your broth, noodles, corn, tomato, mushrooms, cabbage, and green onions as far as I could tell.  It wasn’t very expensive at $8 for the bowl and while I’m still not a major ramen fan, I would definitely eat this again.

Yakisoba Stir Fried Noodles and Don Lee Farms Veggie Patties

Posted on

Like Trader Joe’s, Costco has recently increased their vegan food options.  We just go to Costco every so often because we are only two people and it takes us forever to go through our purchases.  However, when I was juicing, Costco was a great place to get produce in bulk, so we went once a week through that time.

Costco offers Don Lee Farms Veggie Patties to be used as veggie burger patties or just crumbled and used as a meat substitute in any recipe.  I find them to be pretty moist, flavorful, and affordable.  My favorite part is the tiny sunflower seeds mixed in.  They go really well with spicy brown mustard.

I also recently tried the Yakisoba Stir Fried Noodles from the Costco frozen section.  They are vegan “Japanese-style noodles with crispy vegetables and a savory sauce.  They are a very easy and healthier frozen meal option and they work very well as last minute lunches for work.

I noticed that everything tastes very fresh for a frozen meal.  The “savory sauce” is noticeable on the noodles, but the veggies don’t seem to be seasoned at all.  The second time I had one of the packs, I added Tamari sauce and will be doing that from now on.  This meal reminds me of the Panda Express chow mein if mixed with veggies.  I will be buying these regularly for an easy grab and go work lunch.
