Now that I have been living on my own for a bit, I have been doing a lot more cooking. Since I can’t really do anything fancy yet, I am sticking to the basics. This means a lot of rice and noodle dishes with some sort of vegetable and meat.
In order to make my meals more flavorful, I normally add some ra yu chili oil sauce with garlic. It is my favorite spicy sauce, and it goes well with almost any Asian dish. Although it is a chili sauce, it is not really that spicy, and even those who are not big spice fans can probably take the kick. The pieces of fried garlic in the sauce really make it taste good with any dish though.
I think that the Momoya’s ra yu chili oil sauce with garlic goes best with dumplings, but it also pairs well with noodles like udon and soba. I mostly cook Japanese dishes, but I think the sauce would also go well with Chinese and Korean dishes.
It can be hard to make food really flavorful all the time, and sometime it is just easy to use pre-made sauces. I think Momoya’s ra yu chili oil sauce with garlic is a really great way to spice up whatever you are cooking!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
