I'm making ramen at home and I feel I just figured out how to make the perfect broth. Problem is every menma I've bought taste like fish and is very unappetizing. Does anyone know if the ramen shops make it themselves, or can I buy it somewhere????

Fresh ramen noodles to cook at home.

Thanks, I just checked them out online and there's a huge noodle selection. I'll have to take a trip out there. Is there a brand you prefer for ramen?

Fresh ramen noodles to cook at home.

I've recently become obsessed with learning how to make good ramen at home. I plan on learning how to make the noodles but my pasta maker is currently in storage until I move. Can anyone please tell me where I can find really good ramen noodles (similar to imadakes) that I can buy and simply boil at home.also any authentic noodle recipes are welcome :). I'm really looking for that springy noodle with a good bite.

Cast iron dishes montreal

I checked out your link. I remember them being double short handled shallow skillets. That one in the link is pretty cool. I like the long handle .they were burgundy enamel on the outside and cast iron on the inside

Cast iron dishes montreal

Thanks. I lived close to Atwater market. I'll check Warsaw. Ares is too expensive. I do appreciate you can find exactly what your looking for but I'm so much happier when I get a deal. Someone recommended Village. How can I clean to make sure it's clean? Or do I have to trust in using a pan preseasoned by strangers and questionable recipes?

A friend from work is looking to buy 2 live young goats to later slaughter and eat.I've never really heard of anyone doing this but he tells me it's customary where he comes from(Philippines).I'm assuming he could get them from a place that sells livestock to farmers I just don't know of any.

Cheapest grocery store for fruits and veggies?

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on where to get good fruits and veg.I now shop at Adonis and rocky Montana all the time.I feel like I may never do back to Loblaws or metro.I can't believe how much more I was spending on groceries before.Plus I lost over 20 pounds drinking lots of fresh juices and didn't go broke doing it!!!!

Where to buy a whole pig at a good price?

It does seem like a big job.That's why I'm going the berrying route.The guys will get involved digging the hole and all that. Plus makes for some interesting dinner.I'm happy to hear it's not as expensive as I thought and we may even do a 5-10 bucks a head for the pig and ask people to bring sides potluck style.I google mapped the slaughter house and it's only about a half hour away from me.I also have a small grocery store on upper lachine rd that does there own butchering so I'll ask what kind of price they'll give me before I make the trip out to St-Phillipe.I'll let you guys know what they quote me.Thanks for all the help!

Does anyone know where I can get green or young coconuts in montreal?

I was actually at Rocky Montana on Sherbrooke yesterday shopping and found them.I spoke to a man who worked there and he told me that he picks them up at the market(which one I don't know) for the store whenever he see's them.Also they were only $1.39 which I thought was a pretty reasonable price.Now I just need to go and buy a clever to open them!

Does anyone know where I can get green or young coconuts in montreal?

I am looking to make almond coconut milk and was told it was better(or at least easier) to use young coconuts which are green on the outside rather than older coconuts which are brown.I asked a couple of places at JTM and couldn't find any.

Cheapest grocery store for fruits and veggies?

I never thought to ask for "number 2 ". I actually work a block from Jean-Talon market so that's a great little piece of info.Thanks

Cheapest grocery store for fruits and veggies?

I think I'll give them all a try.I found a Sami fruits in Lasalle which isn't too far from where I live and I have a car.There's an Adonis close to my moms(I've realized west Island grocery stores have a way better selection then in NDG) and a P.A near Fort I think.We'll see which yields the best results.
I was thinking in the winter I might just have to buy fruits and veg 3 days at time to ensure they don't go bad and waste my money.

Cheapest grocery store for fruits and veggies?

I recently bought a juicer and am trying out as many different recipes as possible.I went to loblaws this weekend and spent at least 80$ on fruits and veg alone.I also wasn't to empressed with the quality of the produce.Maybe it was just because it was a Sunday?I know super C has good prices but for some reason I'm a little leary of the quality as well.Anyone have any suggestions?
