Let the SLURPING begin.

Why isn’t slurping a thing in the States?

We find slurping offensive yet we reheat frozen food that comes in a ready to serve tray. Hmmmmmm? Food for the thought.

When Mr. B and I visited Japan a few years ago, everyone warned us about the slurping. “OH GOD! Beware of the slurping. People just slurp, slurp, slurp, all the effing time.” I will state for the record that I did notice slurping, but not to the level where I felt I needed to evacuate the restaurant. In fact, the slurping kind of had a nice cadence. “Slurp, slurp, breathe. Slurp, slurp, breathe.”


“But Lauren, why are taking about Japanese folks when the title of your post says Vietnamese? You’re ability to deduct is outstanding. Random side note, Mr. B and I just started watching Sherlock Homes and we’re obsessed. Even though Benedict Cumberbatch is slightly freaking looking yet still handsome, we are committed to watching. Have you seen the show? If yes, do tell!


Where was I? Oh, yes, Vietnamese. Okay, for the record I have no idea if the Vietnamese actually slurp their food. I hope to find out one day because I would love to travel to Southern Asia. Anyway, the reason for the slurping content is that I feel you should slurp this shit out of this Easy Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Bowl. And I say that with the upmost sincerity because if we can’t have chili cheese nachos and pint of pale ale during this healthy month, homegirl can slurp a bowl of noodle goodness.

The best part? This bowl comes together in 30 minutes or less. Plus, you can switch out the ingredients. Beef or shrimp would be a lovely substitute. But the toppings is where I would spend my time composing a masterpiece. Extra jalapeño rounds? Yes, please!

Alright, let the slurping begin in……3, 2, 1…….SLUUUUUUUUUURP.
