Twelve Food Items from Asian Restaurants in the Boston Area

photo of pork curry udon noodle soup from Tampopo, Cambridge, MAIf you look through the slideshows that have been posted here over the past few years, you'll notice a number of Asian dishes, and for good reason; so many of them taste so good and they often photograph beautifully. Well, a new slideshow that features Asian food is now up, and this one focuses mainly on the foods of East Asia and Southeast Asia (expect separate slideshows on Indian and Middle Eastern foods at some point). Some of what you'll see here are pork buns, ramen, vermicelli, sushi, and much more.

Click on the link below to see the brand new slideshow. And keep checking back for more over the coming weeks!
