Squid + noodles + soup

Friday, 18 Feb 2005 | Views [1858]

The dish with no official name, not being on any menu – merely a concoction thown together by some generous women hosts at a small roadside cafe near the Ream naval base. They looked at us quizzickly when we asked for some food. The request was fine ... Read more >
