Cuisine: Vietnamese

Pami/Tseng Noodles 

Web: https://www.paminoodles.com/

Instagram: @pami_noodles

Cuisine: Taiwanese and Japanese

PAMI, like spaghetti from western countries or ramen from Japan, is the noodle from Taiwan. PAMI literally means the natural sun-dried noodles. The sun drying process avoids any use of preservatives and retains the natural smell of wheat flours.  The noodles have a broad, flat character with a very nice chew to them.  The sauce coats the noodles completely – not too much, not too little.  The balance of the spicy Sichuan pepper to other flavors is masterful; it balances perfectly. The noodles are ranked in the Top 10 Noodles of All Time by Ramen Rater and is the only noodle on the list from Taiwan.

More surprise restaurants will be announced prior to the event
