Bom dia! This is why I’ve been so quiet the last two weeks: I’ve just been on a whirlwind trip around Portugal with friends. Possibly the raddest holiday of my life in a country that really surprised me in terms of food, wine, style, people, culture and pretty much everything else.
Pics and stories to come.

Bought some stuff at that great Thai supermarket on Main Road, Sea Point, on Sunday. Aside from fish sauce, peanut oil and a bunch of vegetables (bok choy!), I also bought some instant noodles. There’s something about eating hot and spicy instant noodles that I really enjoy. It’s junk food in most ways, but at the same time, it’s totally comforting. Especially the hot broth.
Less comforting is the ingredient list on the back of this packet.
“Ingredients: wheatmeal, fine palm oil, starch, salt.”
Go right ahead and file that under ‘Bullshit.’ Maybe those ingredients are the noodles, but in all those little sauce and spice packets I reckon a good amount of weird shit is included, and most likely that old flavouring stalwart, MSG. Mmm, not ideal.
Oh, they were really tasty though. And cost about R8 or something
