Noodles in Midland

Have you ever been to one of those places where you can watch people make fresh pasta after you have ordered it? There is a new Chinese place in Midland, TX called Noodles that does exactly that, and it is fantastic. It is located in a strip mall at the corner of Midkiff and Andrews Highway, and we have been there twice now. It can get really crowded at peak hours, but it is still a great addition to the local scene.

The chef from the Midland establishment has opened up Taste of India inside the Ramada at the intersection of JBS Parkway and Highway 80 in Odessa. I have eaten there four times now, and while it isn’t my favorite curry house in the world, well, I have eaten there four times now. It is a great option to have in the area.

That is one of the prettiest spots in which I have ever dined.

Video review of a standard guest room at the Hilton Narita

Hey folks. For those of you who have been reading for a while, I have traditionally written my posts and linked to Youtube for any video content I provided. I still like the format of keeping the video and text/photo reviews distinct. However, I want to start hosting the video content directly on this site. As a result, over the next few weeks I am going to publish videos for which I have already provided the text information. I will provide a link to the original note, as well. When I have cleared the backlog, I will start publishing the video and text reviews on the same day. To start, enjoy my walk through of a standard guest room at the Narita Hilton.
