Drunken Zoodles

Drunken Zoodles! – A healthy take on the drunken noodles found in Asian establishments here in the city! – They get their name for two reasons – firstly, its a meal that is supposed to be eaten with a Beer in hand (probably to calm the spices if you put too much in!) and secondly its supposed to be a great dish to cure a hangover! Whilst I have never tried it for a cure, I’m sure it would work as it is delicious! But for us, this dish is a new favorite and it will definitely become a weeknight staple! Go try it now…yummmmmm!!
