This Bottle Service Includes A MASSIVE 15 POUND Lobster

Bottle service at the club tends to be a rip off. Spending a quick $2000 only to have two measly bottles of alcohol and some sparklers show up is absolutely shameful. Luckily, Foodbeast is here to take a stand.

At Foodbeast’s upcoming noodles festival, Nood Beach, which takes place on September 1st in Huntington Beach, CA, bottle service is an all-encompassing affair. You can not only get bottles delivered to you and your friends’ table, but also a massive 15lb lobster.

Fif-teen. Just look at how big the claw is.

In case you’re still hungry, it’s served over a bed of luscious noodles, cherry tomatoes, and bok choy, all sauteed in garlic sauce. 

The service doesn’t skimp on the alcohol, either. The default can be Dom Pérignon – two bottles of it on ice – but ultimately, the choice is yours! It all has the same effect anyways, right?

If you’re interested, email for pricing here at lobsterservice@foodbeast.com. Prices range depending on the package you choose. 

So, if you want to eat a 15 pound lobster, see a 15 pound lobster, or just be in the spiritual presence of a 15 pound lobster while you eat at one of the other 20+ noodles vendors, make sure to head out to Nood Beach in a couple weeks.

The Best Way To Store Leftover Cooked Pasta

If you’ve cooked too much pasta and you hate wasting food – as do we – then you might enjoy finding out how to store leftover cooked pasta in the future.

Sometimes pasta is misleading. You think you’re cooking a certain quantity, but the results are always way more than you can literally stomach. So, what do you do then? How do you handle it? I personally hate throwing away good food, because I truly care about the planet, about the fact that so much food goes to waste and also, I like to be thrifty most of the time.

There needs to be a solution for storing leftover cooked pasta. After it gets cold, it starts to be clumpy and the texture makes it borderline (or not even) inedible. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prevent that. Here they are. And the nice thing is that they work with any kind of pasta, from spaghetti to lasagna noodles and everything in between.

If you want to have healthier pasta, here’s how to do cook it.

3 solutions to preserve leftover cooked pasta

1. Keep it in the refrigerator

The leftover cooked pasta has about a two-hour shelf life. That means that you should save it before its time comes (I know, that sounds dramatic, but pasta matters, really. It’s life!) So once it gets to room temperature, and you can’t put it in the refrigerator before then, add it to a container that can be sealed with a lid, or a Ziploc bag, drizzle a bit of olive oil or butter over it, so that the pasta doesn’t stick together and then seal. If you use a Ziploc bag, make sure to squeeze out the air so that no mold or bacteria can grow on the pasta.

One caveat: if it’s fresh cooked homemade pasta, then use some flour on it, not fat.

Your leftover cooked pasta should last about five days in the refrigerator.

2. Use the freezer

If you want an even longer shelf life, the freezer will do nicely. Store the cold pasta in freezer bags, drizzle once again oil or butter and remove the air from the bag before you seal.

This will ensure that your pasta is viable and great for eating for up to three whole months! Perfect if you’re going out of town for a while and want to expect some good ready to heat up food at home.

When you’re just about ready to eat, make sure you thaw the pasta in the refrigerator; the process lasts a few hours, so you can do it in the morning and then eat in the evening.

3. Tips for saucy pasta

You can only preserve this for one day in the refrigerator, using the previous ‘lightly coat with oil or butter and then seal in a container’ tip. The advantage of this is that the sauce will lend even more flavor to your cooked pasta and the meal is even more ready for devouring the next day. That’s quite the advantage, I would say.

Leftover Cooked Pasta: How Do You Store It?

How do you reheat it?

You could use the microwave, but that’s not the best solution, maybe it’s the least messy. Boil some water and then drop the cold pasta in it for about half a minute, a minute at most. This will heat it up really nicely.

But if your pasta was refrigerated with the sauce, you should warm it up in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Cover the dish with aluminum foil to seal the moisture in the pasta. You don’t want to have it dry, now do you?

Japanese Fried Chicken and Noodles Are Squad AF In This Crazy Ramen Waffle Cone

We already know chicken karaage and ramen to be a fire combination. Making that portable with a chicken karaage ramen cone, however, is pushing the iconic pairing to the extreme bounds of deliciousness.

Catering company The Milky Way is putting together such a cone for Foodbeast’s AYCE Asian food festival, NOODS NOODS NOODS presented by Original Cup Noodles on January 27th in Santa Ana, CA. You can find this particular noodle-laden item inside of the Marketplace area.

Now, fried chicken in a cone was already a pretty popular item on Instagram in 2017. For 2018, though, The Milky Way is pushing the bounds of that fad by making the actual cone out of ramen itself. The ramen “waffle cone” is crammed full of chicken karaage and even more noods. Kimchi adorns the top of this ramen-ception for a perfect finish.

The Milky Way’s epic fusion of chicken karaage, ramen, and chicken cones, is sure to make a splash in the NOODS NOODS NOODS Marketplace. If you want a piece of the action on this item, be sure to snag some tickets to the Marketplace here. There’s also two all-you-can-consume VIP sessions, if you’re interested in maximum indulgence — which we’re always advocates of.

Forget what you thought you knew about lasagna, because the Italian dish just got remixed into nacho form, ready for you to eat with your hands.

Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza in Newport Beach, California, cooked the lasagna noodle itself to a crisp, letting it act as the chip, while all the familiar ingredients of mozzarella cheese, Italian meatballs and marinara sauce still layer it over top.

The exclusive dish can be found at the Foodbeast’s Noods Noods Noods festival, presented by Cup Noodles, January 14 in the eSports Arena of Downtown Santa Ana, California.

Sgt. Peppereroni teamed up with Foodbeast before, serving up some bombastic Pizza-Wrapped Meatballs during the 2016 Ooozefest.

If you want to give this a try, Sgt. Pepperoni will be inside the VIP section of the noodle festival, during both the 1 p.m., and 5 p.m. sessions.
