A Noodle Festival like no other

January 17, 2017

FoodBeast is a hugely popular food news source, so it's no surprise that their Noods Noods Noods festival tribute to instant noodles was such a success. With over 29 different food vendors in Downtown Santa Ana offering their own noodle-inspired creations and about a dozen different types of beer, the festival was a hit, completely selling out of the $60 VIP tickets.

The creations were mostly mixed with seafood, creating a sushi type of look and taste. Many notable restaurants were there with their own exclusive creations, such as Bruxie, Dos Chinos Food Truck, The Kroft, and Norigami.

The noodle creations were interesting and delicious, giving everything a great texture and making the dishes entertaining to eat. Many creations included noodles as either the main dish with some sort of variation or added noodles to an original dish.

Bruxie's creation was perhaps the most popular featuring a waffle sandwich with fried chicken, spicy kimchi, ramen noodles, and lots of cheese, it was totally worth the mess. The flavors meshed together perfectly and the texture of the noodles with the cheese was something I will be endlessly trying to recreate on my own.

Overall, the event was a hit and definitely worth revisiting, this was FoodBeast's first Noods Noods Noods festival so far; however, I'm sure it will be an annual event from now on.
