So… Sarah has a confession.

The first time she tried Yakisoba, she was ridiculously hungover on the 46th floor of the Umeda Sky Building, about to watch the summer festival fireworks.

The noodles sat in a crisp white take-away box, full of saucy gloriousness. A hangover cure to surpass even that of a KFC Ultimate Burger Meal.

Just one bite and she was hooked:

Enough!
No… just… one… more… bite!
Okay, done.
Mmmmmm, this is the last one…
Or two…
I’m just going to finish it.
Sigh.

So it was a little crazy here over the weekend… We actually saw blue sky and felt warm sun on our faces – something we haven’t experienced in what feels like weeks around here.

Either way, it’s enough to have us daydreaming about hot summer days that are hopefully on their way.

And I don’t know about you, but when we think summer, we think hamburgers. Like these juicy, homemade beef hamburgers that have been tricked up with a few mouth-watering Japanese flavours.

Okay, first let me fess up that I’m TOTALLY ADDICTED to Korean Tteokbokki. (Pronounced kind of like to-bok-ki)
