I’ve tried almost everything here except for the Hakata classic, which I definitely need to get down on at some point soon.
First off, this place has an excellent selection of Japanese beers and cocktails. I have a photo somewhere… let me see if I can find it:
Next, a great assortment of apps and small plates to get the belly ready for ramen. We had some octopus items (Tako & Eringi Karaage), some fried fish, and spicy bacon shit (Pork Teppan).
Now on to the ramen. First is spicy Karaka-men with added pork belly. This was a great bowl of food:
Akamaru. A little thin on pork meat in my opinion, but tasty.
Torishio. My wife had this; a bit thin for my liking, but had good flavor and was light.
Yup. I even tried the veggie ramen. Definitely a soy sauce base with mushroom flavor, and small portion size.
