JW Marriott Hong Kong: The Best Noodle Bar in Asia

A JW Marriott Hong Kong chef cooks fresh noodles in steaming pots of broth

I love noodle bars. Usually the dive-types where one has to trek through an obstacle of narrow alleys, rows of mom and pop stores and walking past a herd of men smoking the local cigarettes while peering residents observe the strangers through cubby hole windows. Not exactly the most elegant of passageways, but the experience certainly creates a build up for the most amazing bowls of hot stock with fresh cut noodles.

And then, there's the Noodle Bar at the JW Marriott Hong Kong. A striking contrast from the standard fare nestled in the lobby of the JW, with striking views of Central. My sister Haj, a resident of Hong Kong, is responsible for
introducing me to this mecca of noodle "joints." She and her tai-tai friends gather here every Friday to indulge in the best noodle cornucopia known to man. That's definitely how I felt during my first encounter.

The set-up is simple, yet quite elaborate. Grab a bowl and fill it with the bar's vast selection of fillings: fresh mussels and shrimp, exotic mushrooms, seaweed, an array of vegetables, and of course, a dizzying variety of noodles. You hand it over to one of the chefs who would dunk the items you selected in these steaming pots of broth. You would then walk over to the condiment station and settle on your choice of seasonings and sauce to accompany your bowl of Asian delight.

If that isn't enough, a Western style salad bar serves as an additional option. Just like the noodle bar, the JW Marriott offers a selection like no other. A chef tosses your salad selection in this rotating wooden bowl which is entertainment in itself. And yes, don't forget the dessert station.

Hong Kong abounds with excellent noodle bars in every corner. However, the JW Marriott Hong Kong elevates this culinary experience to new heights. If you only have one dining option during your short layover in Hong Kong, a bowl of noodles at the JW will surely hit the spot. 





I couldn't resist...it happens even to the best

Now I'm hungry for noodles, and it's only 9am.

It soon became apparent that it was too unwieldy to deal with the nation's day to day business. As a result a smaller curia was formed to deal with the regular business of the country, and this soon split into various courts; first the exchequer of pleas.

The Economou Dragoon looks really good -but more like a hussar to me. Yet, given the 'balkanic' cultural background of Cavenderia, a dragoon can well be in 'hungarian' dress there...
So good to see 18th C. such revival of 18th c. Cavenderia!

The Marshall Court also ended the practice of each justice issuing his opinion seriatim,[13] a remnant of British tradition,[14] and instead issuing a single majority opinion.[13] Also during Marshall's tenure, although beyond the Court's control, the impeachment and acquittal of Justice Samuel Chase in 1804-1805 helped cement the principle of judicial independence.relogios maquina ETA

J.R.R. Tolkien is one of many scholars who have studied and promoted the Mercian dialect of Old English, and introduced various Mercian terms into his legendarium – especially in relation to the Kingdom of Rohan, otherwise known as the Mark (a name cognate with Mercia). Not only is the language of Rohan actually represented as[11] the Mercian dialect of Old English, but a number of its kings are given the same names as monarchs who appear in the Mercian royal genealogy, e.g. denver head shop

Hohokam is one of the four major prehistoric archaeological traditions of the present-day American Southwest.[28] Living as simple farmers, they raised corn and beans. The early Hohokam founded a series of small villages along the middle Gila River. The communities were located near good arable land, with dry farming common in the earlier years of this period.

Wasn't it us who have at all times been friends to the Great Lord and enemies to his enemies? ... Thrice happy are those who will be with us! They shall prosper in their fortune and in their rank. Happy are those who will be neutral! They will get to know us over time, and join their ranks with ours. But unhappy, thrice unhappy, are those who shall arm themselves [to fight] for the Mamluks and who shall fight against us! There shall be no hope for them, they shall perish

During the Great Northern War, the Baltic Fleet assisted in taking Viborg, Tallinn, Riga, the West Estonian archipelago (Moonsund archipelago), Helsinki, and Turku.

Fadhma was personally present at many fights in which Bou Baghla was involved, particularly the battle of Tachekkirt won by Bou Baghla forces (18–19 July 1854), where the French General Randon was caught but managed to escape later. On 26 December 1854, Bou Baghla was killed; some sources claim it was due to the treason of some of his allies. The resistance remained without a charismatic leader and a commander able to guide it efficiently.

One of the hypotheses for this discrepancy suggests that when Uranus was hit by a supermassive impactor, which caused it to expel most of its primordial heat, it was left with a depleted core temperature.[63] Another hypothesis is that some form of barrier exists in Uranus's upper layers which prevents the core's heat from reaching the surface.[11] For example, convection may take place in a set of compositionally different layers, which may inhibit the upward heat transport;[12][62] it is possible that double diffusive convection is a limiting factor.

Apollo set major milestones in human spaceflight. It stands alone in sending manned missions beyond low Earth orbit, and landing humans on another celestial body.[50] Apollo 8 was the first manned spacecraft to orbit another celestial body, while Apollo 17 marked the last moonwalk and the last manned mission beyond low Earth orbit. The program spurred advances in many areas of technology peripheral to rocketry and manned spaceflight, including avionics, telecommunications, and computers.
