I wanted to go to West Hollywood to see the Halloween Parade. But we didn’t because he was wiped out from heavy work. We went to have a relatively new ramen shop instead that his friend recommended.
There were already 4-5 groups waiting outside when we arrived. The restaurant was pretty small with probably 20-25 seats. After 30-35 minute wait, we finally got in. No wait for food because they take orders while you wait.
The ramen we got was not what I expected. Noodle is way too thick like udon. Broth is oily and heavy. Most disappointing was bamboo shoot and green onion doesn’t come with it. You could order bamboo shoot as extra, but they don’t serve green onion at all. Since the ramen is so heavy, fresh green onion could balance it out. Even cilantro might work as well.
Anyway, is this my favorite? No. It is interesting to try a different taste once, but I don’t think we will go back anytime soon. I am not saying it doesn’t taste good. I think a lot of young guys would love it.
However, I am curious about their tsukemen, dipping noodle. Noodle is much thinner and shinier, so it is more likely my type.
