  2. Add an exotic twist to your evening with ramen

    We love ramen, not just because it's healthy but because it tastes delicious too. Oshibori at Nethergate has this udon chicken dish on the menu. If you're nearby, why not pop in for dinner?

  13. If you're going through Broughty Ferry avoid Queen Street

    How's that for a straight to the point title? There will be roadworks starting on Queen Street tomorrow and it will affect numerous bus routes, and, presumably, cause some traffic. If you get caught behind it, don't blame us - we've warned you!

  14. Check out the Dundee youngster who met David Beckham

    It's fair to say that the picture of Kieran Freeman in this article is probably going to make quite a few ladies a little jealous. The Dundee United youngster has been playing at Manchester United, who have been keeping an eye on the player. Get the whole story from The Courier.
