It's more than apparent that we LOVE soup. One of our favorites is Ramen... Not that hard MSG stuff that comes in a pack of 100 for a dollar. You know, the kind that keeps college undergraduate dreams alive... No. We mean real Ramen.
Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup dish. It still has crinkly noodly brothy awesomeness but with a more rich and healthy flavor.
Ramen comes in a variety of ways. There are so many options for your palate. Choose between a miso or soy sauce flavored broth. Add meat: sliced pork, fatty pork, boiled egg (soaked in soy sauce).
Then the veggies: cabbage, broccoli, seaweed (wakame), bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, corn, nori sheets...Add a pat of butter to make it creamy.
Ramen is an awesome comfort food. We left full and with enough leftovers for a snack for all of us later. It reheats well and the noodles don't get soggy like rice noodles do.
Most Ramen places we've been to (that are delicious) are small. Some seat as few as 20 people... Yes. But it's worth it! Get there early and get ready to have an amazingly delicious soup experience.
